The Uphill Battle for Education

Mind-boggling things I’ve heard about my educational pursuits since completing high school in two and a half years and graduating at the age of 16.
1. All the people who kept studying like you blew a fuse and went cuckoo.
2. You have more degrees than a freaking thermometer.
3. You’re shrinking your pool of men/destroying chances to find a husband.
4. Three bachelors. Three masters. You better not get three PhD’s.
5. You’re no public intellectual. Only a professional student & provocateur.
Famous quotes about education from inspirational thought leaders:
1. Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. -Nelson Mandela
2. Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today. -Malcolm X
3. One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world. Education is the only solution. Education first. -Malala Yousafzai
4. Learning gives creativity. Creativity leads to thinking. Thinking provides knowledge. Knowledge makes you great. -A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
5. Renaissance minds draw knowledge from the entire canon of literature.
-Nemat Sadat
