Below is a selection of quotes from famous homeschoolers:
When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.
Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.
Since new developments are the products of a creative mind, we must therefore stimulate and encourage that type of mind in every way possible.
- George Washington Carver
I am always ready to learn, but I do not always like being taught.
- Sir Winston Churchill
I conceive that a knowledge of books is the basis on which all other knowledge rests.
- George Washington
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
Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.
- Thomas Edison
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.
The important thing is to not stop questioning.
Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school.
Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.
It is, in fact, nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate little plant, aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom; without this it goes to wreck and ruin without fail. It is a very grave mistake to think that the enjoyment of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty. To the contrary, I believe it would be possible to rob even a healthy beast of prey of its voraciousness, if it were possible, with the aid of a whip, to force the beast to devour continuously, even when not hungry, especially if the food, handed out under such coercion, were to be selected accordingly.
- Albert Einstein
Everything I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother
- Abraham Lincoln
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education
- Mark Twain
