What is Education?

Swami Vivekananda

• Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man.

• The training by which the current and expression of will is brought under control and become fruitful is called education.

• [Education] may be described as a development of faculty, not an accumulation of words, or, as a training of individuals to will rightly and efficiently.

• Real education is that which enables one to stand on his own legs.

• If you have assimilated five ideas and made them your life and character, you have more education than any man who has got by heart a whole library.
