Salvador Dali’s quotes

Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.

Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.

Each morning when I awake, I experience again a supreme pleasure – that of being Salvador Dali.

In order to acquire a growing and lasting respect in society, it is a good thing, if you possess great talent, to give, early in your youth, a very hard kick to the right shin of the society that you love. After that, be a snob.

I don’t do drugs. I am drugs.

Painting is an infinitely minute part of my personality.

Liking money like I like it, is nothing less than mysticism. Money is a glory.

What is a television apparatus to man, who has only to shut his eyes to see the most inaccessible regions of the seen and the never seen, who has only to imagine in order to pierce through walls and cause all the planetary Baghdads of his dreams to rise from the dust.

Quotes about youth

“In youth we learn; in age we understand.”

Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach

“Youth is easily deceived, because it is quick to hope.”

Aristotle

“You can only be young once. But you can always be immature.”

Dave Barry

“The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

“There is a fountain of youth: It is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring in your life and the lives of people you love.”

Sophia Loren

“The error of youth is to believe that intelligence is a substitute for experience, while the error of age is to believe experience is a substitute for intelligence.”

Ernest Hemingway

“Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up interest wrinkles the soul. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope as old as your despair. In the central place of every heart there is a recording chamber. So long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and courage, so long are you young. When your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then, and then only, are you grown old. And then, indeed as the ballad says, you just fade away.”

Douglas MacArthur

Quotes about education

Several days ago I saw on TV that a student attacked a teacher.

I saw many times that students of our great universities can’t answer very simple questions.

Often I noticed that professors of our universities and leaders of our country have never learned good manners.

I know that some Americans are joining extremists.

What is going on?

Do we have a huge problem in education?

If yes, who is responsible for it?

Below are some quotes about education.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

Maya Angelou

Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.

Oscar Wilde

A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad.

Theodore Roosevelt
