Education: the key to success in any field.

and a knowledge of the scriptures is

essential for a complete education.

 Some one has said:  The only thing more costly than education is ignorance.

It is only the ignorant who despise education. -Publius Syrus

 Read the best books first, or you may not have the chance to read them at all.  - Henry David Thoreau

 

The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them.  - Mark Twain

And from Herbert Hoover: We need to add to the three R's of Reading, 'Riting and 'Rithmetic, a fourth - Responsibility.

Educate the whole man. - Robert Thomas.  The whole man means education of the mind, the passions, emotions, desires and appetite as well as the muscles.

------------------------------------------

"True education does not consist merely in the acquiring of a few facts of science, history, literature, or art; but in the developement of character. True education awakens a desire to conserve health by keeping the body clean and undefiled. 

True education trains in self-denial and self-mastery.

True education regulates the temper, subdues passion and makes obedience . . . a guiding principle of life.   - - - David O. McKay.

----------------------------------------

I consider an intimate knowledge of the Bible an indispensable qualification of a well-educated
man. - Robert A Millikan.

---------------------------------------------------

I thoroughly believe in a university education . . .

but I believe a knowledge of the Bible without a college course is more valuable than a college course without a Bible.

Everyone who has a thorough knowledge of the Bible may truly be called educated. -William Lyon Phelps

---------------------------------------------------

Whatever achievement of my life there is to be commended, the credit is due to my kind parents in instilling into my mind an early love of the Scriptures.  -Daniel Webster

--------------------------------------------------

Whatever greatness . . .  I have done in my life, has simply been due to the fact, when I was a child, my mother daily read with me a part of the Bible, and daily made me learn a part of it by heart.  - John Ruskin
--------------------------------------

It is a fact that one cannot be educated without having studied the moral history of the earth, the Holy Scriptures, leading to the ultimate source of right and wrong.
Our society has been swept off the foundation that leads to intelligence, integrity and order.  Without intelligence from its ultimate source, we have no standard for right and wrong - no definition thereof.  - Bryant Adams

---------------------------------------

General Omar N. Bradley (Top commander in the European theatre in World War 2) said of our time, "We have too many men of science and too few men of God.  We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the sermon on the Mount.  Man is stumbling blindly through a spiritual darkness while toying with the precarious secrets of life and death.
      The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom, power without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants.  We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living." 

----------Read the Holy Scriptures daily, absorb and live them.-----------

Every system, whether molecular, individual or society, without outside intelligent direction will gravitate to chaos. God is the source of intelligence.

This is such a great article - thanks! I believe a call to action is what we all need - religion is action not a passive reading assignment. Thanks
