5 Powerful Motivational Quotes on Education

nelson-mandela-quotes-change-the-worldsThe whole idea of getting an education goes beyond checking a box on your “parents” to do list. Education is supposed to be an eye opening experience that ushers you into a world full of possibilities of what you can do for the world around you.

Unfortunately we are fast becoming a society that quickly forgets that knowledge is power;  a lot of the solutions to some of the problems we face around us lies within us.

Today I challenge you to make your Education meaningful to the WORLD.

I hope you find some inspiration in the  the quotes below…

  1. Education is the most powerful tool you can use to change the world. – Nelson Mandela
  2. Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family. –Kofi Annan

  3. The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge but to create possibilities for a child to invent and discover, to create men who are capable of doing new things. – Jean Piaget
  4. Education is a human right with immense power to transform, on its foundations rest the cornerstones of freedom, democracy and sustainable human development.-Kofi Annan
  5. Education is not the lifting of a pail, but a lighting of a fire. – William Butler Yeats

So in this new week, ponder over whether you want to be an educated person who makes a difference with their education or an educated person with “just” a degree  to show for it.
