to think intensively and to think critically.
Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

The value of a college education is not the learning of many facts
but the training of the mind to think.
- Albert Einstein

The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one.
- Malcolm Forbes

The principle goal of education in the schools
should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things,
not simply repeating what other generations have done.
- Jean Piaget
