Non schola sed vita decimos!

"Only the educated are free."

"Education makes people easy to lead, but difficult to drive;
easy to govern, but impossible to enslave."
Henry Peter, Lord Brougham
"The Present State of the Law"

"If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest."
Benjamin Franklin

"Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day."
Thomas Jefferson


"The educated differ from the uneducated as much as the living from the dead."

"A liberal education... frees a person from the prison-house of his class, race, time, place, background, family, and even his nation."
Robert Maynard Hutchins
The Political Animal

"Education is a better safeguard of liberty than a standing army."
Edward Everett

"Learned Institutions ought to be favorite objects with every free people. They throw that light over the public mind which is the best security against crafty & dangerous encroachments on the public liberty."
James Madison

"Education is a companion which no misfortune can depress, no crime can destroy, no enemy can alienate, no despotism can enslave. At home, a friend, abroad an introduction. In solitude, a solace, and in society, an ornament. It hastens vice, it guides virtue; it gives, at once, grace and government to genius. Without it, what is man? A splendid slave, a reasoning savage." James Addison
