Explore the value of Education
By sharing something, I realized that I'm not alone, that there are a lot of people that share with me the same preoccupations, the same ideas, the same ideals, and the same quest for a meaning for this life.
Do you know the difference between education and experience? Education is when you read the fine print; experience is what you get when you don't.
Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.
Your greatness is measured by your kindness; your education and intellect by your modesty; your ignorance is betrayed by your suspicions and prejudices, and your real caliber is measured by the consideration and tolerance you have for others.

You are educated. Your certification is in your degree. You may think of it as the ticket to the good life. Let me ask you to think of an alternative. Think of it as your ticket to change the world.
Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at 2 or 8. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.

Education is an experiences developed by educators
Education is meaningless without discipline, our children demand instant gratification. Hard work is something someone else should do.
