Yesterday we observed Veteran’s Day, so this Monday Quote is actually a Tuesday quote. And it’s on a subject everyone is familiar with, yet too many of us do not respect.
I cannot begin to tell you how much I cherish my education because if I started to, I would never stop. As a proud student hungry for knowledge, it pains me when I hear people discount the importance of school. Those who don’t value education might as well stop paying tuition and let someone else take their place in class…it’s that simple. But instead of doing that, those misguided minds should try to change their attitude toward growing their knowledge base.
Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.
You’re not just preparing for a job, you’re preparing for your future. As Dr. Thomas Knutson, professor of Communication Studies would say, “The classroom is a sacred place.”
I challenge you all to learn something new this week………outside your chosen field of study!
