The ability to read, write and analyse; the confidence to stand up and demand justice and equality; the qualifications and connections to get your foot in that door and take your seat at that table – all of that starts with education

To educate girls is to reduce poverty

Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another

Education is the foundation for everything we need to do to succeed

The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles but to irrigate deserts.

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

The secret in education lies in respecting the student.
