More Smart People Saying Things (Quotes)

"True education makes for inequality;
the inequality of individuality,
the inequality of success,
the glorious inequality of talent, of genius;
for inequality, not mediocrity,
individual superiority, not standardization,
is the measure of the progress of the world."
-- Felix E. Schelling
(1858-1945) American educator

"The central task of education is to implant a will and facility for learning; it should produce not learned but learning people.  The truly human society is a learning society, where grandparents, parents, and children are students together."
-- Eric Hoffer
(1902-1983) American author, philosopher, awarded Presidential Medal of Freedom
