Every addition to true knowledge is an addition to human power.
I’m hungry for knowledge. The whole thing is to learn every day, to get brighter and brighter. That’s what this world is about. You look at someone like Gandhi, and he glowed. Martin Luther King glowed. Muhammad Ali glows. I think that’s from being bright all the time, and trying to be brighter.
A human being is not attaining his full heights until he is educated. – Horace Mann
Ignorance breeds monsters to fill up the vacancies of the soul that are unoccupied by the verities of knowledge. – Horace Mann
Resolve to edge in a little reading every day, if it is but a single sentence. If you gain fifteen minutes a day, it will make itself felt at the end of the year. – Horace Mann
Education…beyond all other devices of human origin, is a great equalizer of conditions of men –the balance wheel of the social machinery…It does better than to disarm the poor of their hostility toward the rich; it prevents being poor. – Horace Mann
Education is our only political safety. Outside of this ark, all is deluge. – Horace Mann
