Weekly Geeks: A Quote a Day #6

It has always seemed strange to me that in our endless discussions about education so little stress is laid on the pleasure of becoming an educated person, the enormous interest it adds to life. To be able to be caught up into the world of thought — that is to be educated.
— Edith Hamilton

    I love that quote. When I started homeschooling my kids I learned the joy of becoming an educated person for myself. It’s a path that is never-ending and full of new things to explore.

    J.Danger, I like this one, too.

    Petunia, I love learning and that’s what brought me to teaching. (That and my love of children and children’s literature!) I keep this quote in my lesson plan book so I can always keep the idea in mind in my classroom. It’s important to me not to lose track of that goal.

    Yes, the career and salary benefits of education are always stressed, as if there were no other rewards in it. Another great choice in quotes.
