Famous quotes by Educators

Educators"Education and learning is not the filling of a pail, but the lights of a fire." - William Butler Yeats

Education and learning is a powerful device that can shape the future of people and also culture as a whole. Throughout history, teachers have shared their wisdom on the importance of understanding and the effect it can carry our lives. William Butler Yeats, an Irish poet and also playwright, is one such educator who thought that education must have to do with stiring up an enthusiasm for understanding and exploration, rather than merely filling up a jug with facts as well as figures. His quote, "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire," is a reminder of the transformative power of education and the importance of motivating pupils to pursue their passions.
