Emotional attachments to people, to employers, to property and even to places and things affect us all occasionally. And breaking an emotional attachment can be hard for anyone.

21 thought-provoking quotes about education

You don’t need to go to college or university but you do need an education. It doesn’t have to be a formal education, being self-taught can have its advantages, particularly if you feel you learn better that way. Certainly classroom learning doesn’t suit everyone. However learning is a lifelong process. You must never stop learning new things because life never stops changing. Think about it; there are things we take for granted today that didn’t exist 10 or 15 years ago. For instance social media, and its enormous impact on our lives, wasn’t even on the horizon as we entered the new Millennium, less than 20 years ago. Progress never stops and neither must your education. Here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about education to help you think a little more about today’s point.

And ladies, if it’s not obvious, any quote here with a reference to men applies equally to women. You knew that, I know. However the problem with many older quotes is that they do often refer to the male of the species. Obviously now we live in more enlightened times, thanks mostly to education. Education is essential for everyone.

  7. Children must be taught how to think, not what to think. ~Margaret Mead
  8. The mind once enlightened cannot again become dark. ~Thomas Paine
  9. Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune. ~Jim Rohn

  11. Spoon feeding in the long run teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon. ~EM Forster
  12. Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each. ~Plato
  13. Without education, we are in a horrible and deadly danger of taking educated people seriously. ~GK Chesterton
  14. Prejudices, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilised by education: they grow there, firm as weeds among stones. ~Charlotte Brontë
  15. Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel. ~Socrates
  16. Self-education is, I firmly believe, the only kind of education there is. ~Isaac Asimov
  17. All men who have turned out worth anything have had the chief hand in their own education. ~Walter Scott
  18. Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it. ~Albert Einstein
  19. Study without desire spoils the memory, and it retains nothing that it takes in. ~Leonardo da Vinci
  20. The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers. ~Thomas Jefferson
  21. Ideally, what should be said to every child, repeatedly, throughout his or her school life is something like this: ‘You are in the process of being indoctrinated. We have not yet evolved a system of education that is not a system of indoctrination. We are sorry, but it is the best we can do. What you are being taught here is an amalgam of current prejudice and the choices of this particular culture. The slightest look at history will show how impermanent these must be. You are being taught by people who have been able to accommodate themselves to a regime of thought laid down by their predecessors. It is a self-perpetuating system. Those of you who are more robust and individual than others will be encouraged to leave and find ways of educating yourself; educating your own judgements. Those that stay must remember, always, and all the time, that they are being moulded and patterned to fit into the narrow and particular needs of this particular society. ~Doris Lessing

21 thought-provoking quotes about anxiety

Anxiety is a deep sense of unease which sufferers experience in relation to something which for whatever reason really bothers them. In essence it’s a heightened sense of nervousness and excessive unease. At its core is a level of uncertainty which can cause the sufferer to experience panic attacks. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a fast heart rate and shakiness. It’s an altogether unpleasant experience for the sufferer and not one I’d wish on anyone. Here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about anxiety to help readers better understand how the sufferer is affected.

Just know that there is help and your life could be better if you go out and seek the help. ~Howie Mandel
  4. People talk about physical fitness, but mental health is equally important. I see people suffering, and their families feel a sense of shame about it, which doesn’t help.

  7. The truth is that there is no actual stress or anxiety in the world; it’s your thoughts that create these false beliefs. You can’t package stress, touch it, or see it. There are only people engaged in stressful thinking. ~Wayne Dyer
  8. Everyone needs a reset button so you can start your day without anxiety. For some people, it’s running; for some, it’s going to the gym. For me, it’s meditation. ~Matt Bomer
  9. People tend to dwell more on negative things than on good things. So the mind then becomes obsessed with negative things, with judgments, guilt and anxiety produced by thoughts about the future and so on. ~Eckhart Tolle
  10. Happiness is not a brilliant climax to years of grim struggle and anxiety. It is a long succession of little decisions simply to be happy in the moment. ~J. Donald Walters

  18. The other thing is that if you rely solely on medication to manage depression or anxiety, for example, you have done nothing to train the mind, so that when you come off the medication, you are just as vulnerable to a relapse as though you had never taken the medication. ~Daniel Goleman
  19. Anxiety is a really crippling condition, and I suffer with it myself, and I feel for anyone who suffers from it. The way that I deal with it is try as much as possible to stay in the moment to not think about the past and not think about what’s coming up in the future: to try and just seize the moment as much as possible. ~James Arthur
  20. Unfortunately, I think depression and anxiety are really hard to live with. And what people don’t need is to feel bad about themselves because they decide to go on medication. ~Rene Russo
  21. This is an anxiety driven world – the whole world is driven by anxiety. It is anxiety about the aftermath of the global financial crisis; it’s anxiety about inequality and about computers replacing jobs. ~Robert J. Shiller
