"We are all born ignorant, but one  must work hard to remain that way."

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

                           Albert Einstein

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

                   - Nelson Mandela

The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.
