Top Reading Writing And Education Quotes

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Alison Weir

The formal education of women was rarely considered important. Girls of good birth were taught domestic skills at home or in a convent, and rarely learned to read and write, for it was feared that if they did they would waste their talents writing love letters or reading romances that led to promiscuity. — Alison Weir

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Ralph Waldo Emerson

Solitude, the safeguard of mediocrity, is to genius the stern friend, the cold, obscure shelter where moult the wings which will bear it farther than suns and stars. He who should inspire and lead his race must be defended from travelling with the souls of other men, from living, breathing, reading, and writing in the daily, time-worn yoke of their opinions. "In the morning, - solitude;" said Pythagoras; that Nature may speak to the imagination, as she does never in company, and that her favorite may make acquaintance with those divine strengths which disclose themselves to serious and abstracted thought. 'Tis very certain that Plato, Plotinus, Archimedes, Hermes, Newton, Milton, Wordsworth, did not live in a crowd, but descended into it from time to time as benefactors: and the wise instructor will press this point of securing to the young soul in the disposition of time and the arrangements of living, periods and habits of solitude. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Rodney Ulyate

You learn almost as much about a thinker from what he reads - in particular, what he likes and what he disdains - as from what he writes himself. — Rodney Ulyate

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Gloria D. Gonsalves

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By John Steinbeck

Then there were his education and his reading, the books he bought and borrowed, his knowledge of things that could not be eaten or worn or cohabited with, his interest in poetry and his respect for good writing. — John Steinbeck

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

I read and write. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By John Taylor Gatto

Do we really need school? I don't mean education, just forced schooling: six classes a day, five days a week, nine months a year, for twelve years. Is this deadly routine really necessary? And if so, for what? Don't hide behind reading, writing, and arithmetic as a rationale, because 2 million happy homeschoolers have surely put that banal justification to rest. — John Taylor Gatto

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Bunker Roy

School is something that you learn - reading and writing. Education is what you learn from the family, from the environment, from the community. — Bunker Roy

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Paradise of Lailah Gifty Akita is reading, wondering and writing. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Thomas Jefferson

Students of reading, writing and common arithmetick ... Graecian [Greek], Roman, English and American history ... should be rendered ... worthy to receive, and able to guard the sacred deposit of the rights and liberties of their fellow citizens. — Thomas Jefferson

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Kilroy J. Oldster

A program of active reading and writing might be the hardest form of thinking, but it is also the most organized methodology of self-education. Reading exposes the mind to a world of ideas heretofore unimaginable and encourages the novice learner to write. Reading is a form a joint mediation and writing represents the product of several authors' collective and collaborative minds at work. — Kilroy J. Oldster

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Ken Robinson

We all love stories, even if they're not true. As we grow up, one of the ways we learn about the world is through the stories we hear. Some are about particular events and personalities within our personal circles of family and friends. Some are part of the larger cultures we belong to - the myths, fables, and fairy tales about our own ways of life that have captivated people for generations. In stories that are told often, the line between fact and myth can become so blurred that we easily mistake one for the other. This is true of a story that many people believe about education, even though it's not real and never really was. It goes like this: Young children go to elementary school mainly to learn the basic skills of reading, writing, and mathematics. These skills are essential so they can do well academically in high school. If they go on to higher education and graduate with a good degree, they'll find a well-paid job and the country will prosper too. — Ken Robinson

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Frank Smith

Two kinds of reading can be distinguished. I call them reading like a reader and reading like a writer ... when you read like a reader, you identify with the characters in the story. The story is what you learn about. When you read like a writer, you identify with the author and learn about writing. — Frank Smith

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Steven Pinker

Education is neither writing on a blank slate nor allowing the child's nobility to come into flower. Rather, education is a technology that tries to make up for what the human mind is innately bad at. Children don't have to go to school to learn to walk, talk, recognize objects, or remember the personalities of their friends, even though these tasks are much harder than reading, adding, or remembering dates in history. They do have to go to school to learn written language, arithmetic, and science, because those bodies of knowledge and skill were invented too recently for any species-wide knack for them to have evolved. — Steven Pinker

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Joe Fassler

For (Levi) Grossman, no books feel more like home than C. S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia, which provide the template for what he likes to read - and how he wants to write. — Joe Fassler

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By John Ruskin

Reading and writing are not education if they do not help people to be kind to all creatures — John Ruskin

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

I also able to graciously survive the PhD from the grace, which comes from prayer, bible reading, extensive story reading, fasting, fellowship, listen to music, daily dance and sacred writing. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Ray Bradbury

I spent three days a week for 10 years educating myself in the public library, and it's better than college. People should educate themselves
you can get a complete education for no money. At the end of 10 years, I had read every book in the library and I'd written a thousand stories. — Ray Bradbury

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

I am obsessed with reading and writing. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Timothy VanSlyke

Even if we grant that digital natives think and learn somewhat differently than older generations, we may be doing them a disservice to de-emphasize 'legacy' content such as reading, writing, and logical thinking, or to say that the methodologies we have used in the past are no longer relevant ... Digital immigrants and natives alike are bombarded with vast volumes of information in today's electronic society, which ... calls for an even greater emphasis on critical thinking and research skills
the very sort of 'legacy' content that teachers have focused on since classical times — Timothy VanSlyke

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Richard Ford

Real mystery - the very reason to read (and certainly write) any book - was to them a thing to dismantle, distill and mine out into rubble they could tyrannize into sorry but more permanent explanations; monuments to themselves, in other words. In my view all teachers should be required to stop teaching at age thirty-two and not allowed to resume until they're sixty-five, so that they can live their lives, not teach them away - live lives full of ambiguity and transience and regret and wonder, be asked to explain nothing in public until very near the end when they can't do anything else.
Explaining is where we all get into trouble. — Richard Ford

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Bill Watterson

Calvin: I used to hate writing assignments, but now I enjoy them. I realized that the purpose of writing is to inflate weak ideas, obscure poor reasoning, and inhibit clarity. With a little practice, writing can be an intimidating and impenetrable fog! Want to see my book report?
Hobbes: (Reading Calvin's paper) "The Dynamics of Interbeing and Monological Imperatives in Dick and Jane: A Study in Psychic Transrelational Gender modes."
Calvin: Academia, here I come! — Bill Watterson

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Humans aren't as good as we should be in our capacity to empathize with feelings and thoughts of others, be they humans or other animals on Earth. So maybe part of our formal education should be training in empathy. Imagine how different the world would be if, in fact, that were 'reading, writing, arithmetic, empathy.' — Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Devote yourself to reading, learning and writing. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

The passion for self improvement is the love for reading, learning and writing. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

A doctorate study is the passion for extensive research, reading, thinking and writing. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Sharon M. Draper

I learned to dream through reading, learned to create dreams through writing, and learned to develop dreamers through teaching. I shall always be a dreamer. — Sharon M. Draper

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Every child should be taught how to read, write and think. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Chris Matakas

Jiu Jitsu opened up doors in my mind that public education had bolted shut. In hindsight, I see just how superficial my thoughts had been prior to this art. It is no coincidence that my efforts in reading and writing have run parallel with this craft. I began training Jiu Jitsu at twenty-two, and at the time of this writing I am about to turn thirty. I have learned more in the past eight years than the previous twenty-two, and have no doubts that Jiu Jitsu opened up my mind in a way traditional organized education never could. Jiu Jitsu gave me a life when I didn't know how to live. It is the best thing I have ever done, and is the foundation upon which all I will do. — Chris Matakas

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By John Lubbock

Reading and writing, arithmetic and grammar do not constitute education, any more than a knife, fork and spoon constitute a dinner. — John Lubbock

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By John Taylor Gatto

Close reading of tough-minded writing is still the best, cheapest, and quickest method known for learning to think for yourself ... Reading, and rigorous discussion of that reading in a way that obliges you to formulate a position and support it against objections, is an operational definition of education ... reading, analysis, and discussion is the way we develop reliable judgment, the principle way we come to penetrate covert movements behind the facade of public appearances. — John Taylor Gatto

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Paul J. Zak

So while we need to provide people with technical skills that will help them find employment, we can't afford to neglect the even more basic skills -- reading, writing, thinking, feeling -- that allow them to become fully realized human beings who care about the world they live in and the people who share it with them. — Paul J. Zak

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Mike Schmoker

Worksheets - the archenemy of abundant, purposeful reading (and discussion and writing). — Mike Schmoker

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Eric Basso

In my estimation, the best course in creative writing consists of voracious transglobal reading, disrespect for authority, not paying any attention to your teachers, experiencing everything you can to the point of mental and physical damage, and drinking. That's how most of the greats did it, and how it was meant to be done. — Eric Basso

Reading Writing And Education Quotes By Frank Smith

Reading and writing don't inevitably go together. You can read without learning a thing about writing, grammar, or spelling, although, you certainly can't learn anything about writing, grammar, or spelling unless you read. — Frank Smith
