A teacher effects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.

Henry Adams


Education is not a form of entertainment, but a means of empowering people to take control of their lives.



The education and empowerment of women throughout the world cannot fail to result in a more caring, tolerant, just and peaceful life for all.

Enjoy Life

I live by one principle: Enjoy life with no conditions!

People say, "If I had your health, if I had your money, oh, I would enjoy myself."

It is not true. I would be happy if I were lying sick in a hospital bed. It must come from the inside. That is the one thing I hop I have contributed to my children, by example and by talk: to make no conditions, to understand that life is a wonderful thing and to enjoy it, every day, to the full.

To me the world is divided into two kinds of people: those who are conscious and those who are unconscious. To me there is no difference among men when it comes to their color, their race, their religion; they are all equal. Only the degree of their awareness of the world they live in, of the joy and the pleasure of living, of the need of sharing that awareness with others and bringing it to their fellowmen (if they happen to be fortunate enough to have talent) is a measure of this difference.

During my long life I have learned one lesson: that the most important thing is to realize why one is alive - and I think it is not only to build bridges or tall buildings or make money, but to do something truly important, to do something for humanity. To bring joy, hope, to make life richer for the spirit because you have been alive, that is the most important thing.

Arthur Rubinstein


Nothing is ever achieved without enthusiasm.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.

Albert Einstein


The test and the use of man's education is that he finds pleasure in the exercise of his mind.

Jacques Martin Barzun


We start as fools and become wise through experience.
