If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
    ~Norman Douglas

Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
    ~B. F. Skinner

Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one.
    ~Malcolm Forbes

I think everyone should go to college and get a degree and then spend six months as a bartender and six months as a cabdriver. Then they would really be educated.
    ~Al McGuire

Education: the path from cocky ignorance to miserable uncertainty.
    ~Mark Twain

If you want to get laid, go to college. If you want an education, go to the library.
    ~Frank Zappa
