Let these Inspirational Quotes About
Education Inspire YOU

Teachers do so much talking it seems they should be the ones to offer an inspirational education quote, not us. But, life being what it is, we're the ones doing the offering, and rightly so, since it's the teachers themselves who often prompt our inspirational quotes about education.

George Balanchine's response to being offered a ballet company of his own. (He founded the New York City Ballet and the associated school.)

Sydney J. Harris

Mark Twain
