Random Quotations
     A selection of random thoughts, quotations and remarks on Education and Knowledge                
The purpose of education should be to help every child’s mind achieve its potential not to shackle the brightest to the speed of the slowest as a sop to political correctness. “The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one.” Malcolm Forbes “Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.” Oscar Wilde “For knowledge, too, is itself power.” Francis Bacon “All knowledge is of itself of some value. There is nothing so minute or inconsiderable that I would not rather know it than not.” Samuel Johnson "Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." Martin Luther King, Jr. "Stupidity is the deliberate cultivation of ignorance." William Gaddis "If the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch." Matthew 15:14
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing .... better then to have a lot of knowledge
