Quotes on Education

We all know the importance of education. It is the lifeline of modern human life. No one can deny the significance of education and learning in our lives. 

It helps us in seeing things in a better perspective. We get to know the world and its people in a better way. The scope of education is not just restricted to a good career and earning five figure salaries. It is much more than that. 

Education tells us about what is right and what is wrong. It helps us in developing insight and wisdom. And perhaps, if there is one thing that segregates humans from animals then it must be education. 

The ability to read, write and understand is what makes we humans the special ones. Let’s have a look at some of the phenomenal quotes on education:-
