Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man.
The training by which the current and expression of will is brought under control and become fruitful is called education.
Real education is that which enables one to stand on his own legs.
If you have assimilated five ideas and made them your life and character, you havemore
education than any man who has got by heart a whole library.
[Education is] not an accumulation of words....
[Education is] not the collecting of facts...
Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs riot there, undigested all your life.
Well, you consider a man as educated if only he can pass some examinations and deliver good lectures...
Knowledge is inherent in man; no knowledge comes from outside; it is all inside; What
we say a man "knows", should, in strict psychological language, be what he "discovers"
or "unveils"; what a man learns is really what he "discovers", by taking the cover off his
own soul which is a mine of infinite knowledge.
To me the very essence of education is concentration of mind, not the collecting of facts.
If I had to do my education over again, and had any voice in the matter, I would not
study facts at all. I would develop the power of concentration and detachment, and then
with a perfect instrument I could collect facts at will.
