Albert Einstein quotes ~
• “The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.”
• “Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school.”
• “The aim (of education) must be the training of independently acting and thinking individuals who, however, can see in the service to the community their highest life achievement.”
• “Most teachers waste their time by asking questions which are intended to discover what a pupil does not know, whereas the true art of questioning has for its purpose to discover what the pupil knows or is capable of knowing.”
• “It is, in fact, nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of education have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate little plant, aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom; without this it goes to wrack and ruin without fail. It is a very grave mistake to think that the enjoyment of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty. To the contrary, I believe that it would be possible to rob even a healthy beast of prey of its voraciousness, if it were possible, with the aid of a whip, to force the beast to devour continuously, even when not hungry, especially if the food, handed out under such coercion, were to be selected accordingly.”

Loren Eiseley
b. 9-3-1907; Lincoln, NE
b. 7-9-1977; Philadelphia

Loren Eiseley, an anthropologist, educator, philosopher, and natural science writer, was referred to as “the modern Thoreau”.

Loren Eiseley quotes ~
• “It is frequently the tragedy of the great artist, as it is of the great scientist, that he frightens the ordinary man.”
• “It was the failures who had always won, but by the time they won they had come to be called successes. This is the final paradox, which men call evolution.”
• “If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.”
• “If it should turn out that we have mishandled our own lives as several civilizations before us have done, it seems a pity that we should involve the violet and the tree frog in our departure.”
• “The creative element in the mind of man . . . emerges in as mysterious a fashion as those elementary particles which leap into momentary existence in great cyclotrons, only to vanish again like infinitesimal ghosts.”
• “Like the herd animals we are, we sniff warily at the strange one among us.”

Daniel Ellsburg
b. 4-7-1931; Chicago, IL

Daniel Ellsburg, who worked as a military analyst while employed by the RAND Corporation (Research ANd Development) released the “Pentagon Papers”, a top-secret study of US government decision-making about the Vietnam War, to The New York Times and other newspapers.

Ellsburg, who had been a Marine platoon leader and company commander, then served as a State Department civilian employee in Vietnam in the mid 1960s. In 1969 Ellsburg heard Randy Kehler, a draft resister, say he was “very excited” that he would soon be able to join his friends in prison - that statement sent Ellsburg soul searching.

Daniel Ellsburg quotes ~
“Those of us who finally saw through the Vietnam war saw through this war, and all the actions that were necessary to end the Vietnam war will be necessary here. I think the American people will get us out of this (war).”
• “Don't do what I did. Don't wait until the bombs are falling in Iran. Don't wait until people are dying. Go to the press and reveal.”
• “If they keep arresting us without charging us, then they are doing nothing other than restricting our freedom of speech. This needs to be challenged, and if we're arrested again, we'll have a stronger case.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
b. 5-25-1803; Massachusetts
d. 4-27-1882

Philosopher, essayist, lecturer, and poet Ralph Waldo Emerson inspired a cultural movement that came to be known as Transcendentalism.

Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes ~
“Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.”
• “The only way to have a friend is to be one.”
• “Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.”
• “What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.”
• “Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...”
• “By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.” First Lines of Concord Hymn, 1836
