John Ruskin

 The first duty of a State is to see that every child born therein shall be well housed, clothed, fed, and educated, till it attain years of discretion. But in order to the effecting this the Government must have an authority over the people of which we now do not so much as dream.

 Education is the leading of human souls to what is best and making what is best out of them. ... Education does not mean teaching people what they do not know. It means teaching them to behave as they do not behave.

1853 - from The Stones of Venice
The highest reward for a manís toil is not what he gets for it, but what he becomes by it.

To make your children capable of honesty is the beginning of education.
