An educational system isn’t worth a great deal if it teaches young people how to make a living but doesn’t teach them how to make a life
The sole purpose of Education shouldn’t be to just teach students to make them capable to earn a living. It must be a learning process to make them realize the importance of education and make them ready to face for every stage of life with equal strength. So they learn to tackle every situation efficiently and excel with ease.
Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another
What we do today, learn today is what we are going to pass to next generation. We must make sure we set an example for them by our action. Only if we feel the responsibility then only we could influence others. This is what gets pass from one generation to another and this world will become a better place to live.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self confidence
Education must be like a yoga, a thing which makes us calm and makes us meet with our real identity. Education must teach us to think and analyze things well, rather then arguing or throwing random tantrums at one another on every topic. We must be a very good listener before we can be a good speaker. It must also teach us to control our anger and make sure we don’t break down in difficult situation.
