The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.
Childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can read, write and count. Childhood is a small window of time to learn and develop at the pace which is right for each individual child.
Education is not just about going to school and getting a degree. It's about widening your knowledge and absorbing the truth about life.
There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.
The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.
