Education is what survives when what has been learnt has been forgotten.

B. F. Skinner

Marian Wright Edelman


Sam Walton's 10 Rules

RULE 1: COMMIT to your business, believe in it more than anybody else.

RULE 2: SHARE with your associates, and behave as a servant leader in a partnership.

RULE 3: MOTIVATE your partners, think of new and more interesting ways to motivate and challenge them.

RULE 4: COMMUNICATE everything you possibly can to your partners. The more they know, the more they'll
understand. The more they understand, the more they'll care.

RULE 5: APPRECIATE everything your associates do for the business. Nothing else can quite substitute a few
well-chose, well-timed, sincere words of praise.
RULE 6: CELEBRATE your successes.

RULE 7: LISTEN to everyone in your company, and figure out ways to get them talking.

RULE 8: EXCEED your customer's expectations.

RULE 9: CONTROL your expenses better than your competition. This is where you can always find the competitive
advantage. You can make a lot of different mistakes and still recover if you run an efficient operation.

RULE 10: SWIM upstream. Go the other way. Ignore conventional wisdom.

Linda Conway

Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism.

David M. Burns


Label on a child's Superman costume: Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly.

Helen Keller

The Best

The Object

The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.

Robert Maynard Hutchins


We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.

Albert Einstein


Learning without thought is labor lost; thought without learning is perilous.



It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.


Time Machine

We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams.

Jeremy Irons


The highest result of education is tolerance.

Helen Keller



I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.

Confucious (551 BC - 479 BC)
