I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.
The value of a college education is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think.
Nothing in education is so astonishing as the amount of ignorance it accumulates in the form of inert facts.
Good breeding is shown, not by not upsetting the sauce, but by not noticing it when somebody else does.[Хорошее воспитание не в том, что ты не прольешь соуса на скатерть, а в том, что ты не заметишь, если это сделает кто-нибудь другой.]
Giving women education, work, the ability to control their own income, inherit and own property, benefits the society. If a woman is empowered, her children and her family will be better off. If families prosper, the village prospers, and eventually so does the whole country.
