"The most influential of all educational factors is the conversation in a child's home.     -William Temple      "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."     -   Martin Luther King, Jr.         "Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom."    - George Washington Carver     "The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one."    -  Malcolm Forbes   “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”     ― Nelson Mandela     “Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.”  ― Robert Frost     “Only a generation of readers will spawn a generation of writers.”    ― Steven Spielberg     “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”  ― Aristotle
