Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils.
Louis Hector Berlioz

Let us guide our students over the road of discipline from materials, through function, to creative work. Let us lead them into the healthy world of primitive building methods, where there was meaning in every stroke of an axe, expression in every bite of chisel.
Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe
Education makes people easy to lead, but difficult to drive; easy to govern, but impossible to enslave.
Henry Peter Brougham
Children have to be educated, but they have also to be left to educate themselves.
