How do we Minimize Stress, Maximize Happiness, And Excel Academically?

It takes more than just a few simple tips for a student to succeed academically and beyond.

What is education and therefore what a student should expect from education? What does it mean to educate and to be educated?

Socrates

Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.

Albert Einstein

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school.

Socrates

Whom do I call educated? First, those who manage well the circumstances they encounter day by day. Next, those who are decent and honorable in their intercourse with all men, bearing easily and good naturedly what is offensive in others and being as agreeable and reasonable to their associates as is humanly possible to be... those who hold their pleasures always under control and are not ultimately overcome by their misfortunes... those who are not spoiled by their successes, who do not desert their true selves but hold their ground steadfastly as wise and sober -- minded men.

Albert Einstein

The ideals which have lighted my way and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty and Truth.

How strange is the lot of us mortals! Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people.

It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day.

Every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.

Leo Tolstoy

The sole meaning of life is to serve humanity.

M.K. Gandhi

Real education consists in drawing the best out of you. What better book can there be than the book of humanity?

M. K. Gandhi

The real difficulty is that people have no idea of what education truly is. We assess the value of education in the same manner as we assess the value of land or of shares in the stock-exchange market. We want to provide only such education as would enable the student to earn more. We hardly give any thought to the improvement of the character of the educated. As long as such ideas persist there is no hope of our ever knowing the true value of education. 

Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit
Education is not merely a means for earning a living or an instrument for the acquisition of wealth. It is an initiation into life of spirit, a training of the human soul in the pursuit of truth and the practice of virtue.

Plato
Let us describe the education of our men. What then is the education to be? Perhaps we could hardly find a better than that which the experience of the past has already discovered, which consists, I believe, in gymnastic, for the body, and music for the mind.

Alec Bourne
It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.

John W. Gardner
I am entirely certain that twenty years from now we will look back at education as it is practiced in most schools today and wonder that we could have tolerated anything so primitive.

Anatole Franc

An education isn’t how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know.  It’s being able to differentiate between what you know and what you do not.

Sir William Haley
Education would be so much more effective if its purpose were to ensure that by the time they leave school every boy and girl should know how much they don't know, and be imbued with a lifelong desire to know it.

John Ruskin author of ‘Unto This Last’
The first condition of education is being able to put someone to wholesome and meaningful work.

Socrates

An unexamined life is not worth living.

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.

Thomas Edison

If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.

I never did a day's work in my life. It was all fun.

I believe that the science of chemistry alone almost proves the existence of an intelligent creator.

Kenny Ausubel

Each of us has a spark of life inside us, and our highest endeavor ought to be to set off that spark in one another.
