  1. thumbs up for a nice post. really education will bring you to prosperity. one educational quotes who are familiar in the philippines is “Edukasyon ang solustion” which means in english. “Education is the solution”

  2. Awesome quote from Aristole. This reminds me of another quote from him ““Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all”. We contently learn each day and continue to gain knowledge each day from our experiences.

  3. These are indeed wise words to ponder. The reasons for seeking an education often transcend any resulting prosperity.

  4. beautiful blog, couldnt resist my self to leave a comment, i am quote lover, i love to read quote and remember it lol, especially the quote of the day, one of the best of i like is. “At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst.
    “Aristotle”

  5. As I keep telling my granddaughter when helping her with her homework, education is vital. And, since we are members of the Sandwich Generation, with my elderly mom living with me, her great-grandmother then enjoys chiming in and pointing out the same thing. With two generations, my granddaughter is definitely learning the importance of a good education.

  6. Like my favorite quote states “When the student is ready the teacher will appear.” Education is priceless.

  7. I agree education is very important. but its also important HOW education is “done”.
    Here one of my favorite quotes:
    “Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.”

  8. Knowledge is a tool in any progress for having enough facts one can make plans or ideas how to improve current status as in the case of adversity. It becomes an ornament or display or not that given much emphasis for some individuals who are born with a silver spoon. I would agree with the latter not with the former for most of the prosperous people value education much.

  9. Education is the key to independence. It used to be only the privileged had access to higher education. Today the internet has provided that opportunity to many around the world. It has leveled the playing field by making the less fortunate able to compete for the jobs we used to take for granted here in the US. Unless we as a nation start taking education from the early years more seriously we will continue to lose our competitive advantage and make it more difficult for our kids in the future. Prosperity comes and the will to educate comes from within us individually not from our government.

  10. i think it means that when life is prosperous education is something you can use for your advantage but when life is your adversary education is a place to go. Hence, new graduates who normally would not have gone to grad school are now going as a replacement for trying to get a job.

  11. Aristotle was generalizing, speaking of ‘man in the masses’. I think he’s right. Why? Because it’s been estimated that only ten percent of the adult population are active learners… and the hardest time to get the average person to learn something is when things are going well, because they have and see less need. If you’re not continually learning, the world is overtaking you. ‘Adversity introduces a man to himself’. When we’re up against the wall, we dig deeper than we do in prosperous times. If you’re an expansive thinker like Aristotle you don’t let the times sway your thinking.

  12. There are rare people that have a curiosity for life that will be educated not by only listening to others but by the need to learn on their own. They have a passion for learning and will always find a way to learn the things they are passionate about. Sometimes, no I say most times, the best of us only show the tip of the iceburge. They do not learn it they are born it.
