Education Toasts

Let us not forget the words of Oscar Wilde, who said, "Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing worth knowing can be taught.”

In the words of Oliver Goldsmith,
"Let schoolmasters puzzle their brains

Good liquor I stoutly maintain,
Gives genius a better discerning.

To the grand endeavor of education. Education pays, they say, but it certainly doesn't pay the educators well!

To the Dean - who does well despite his faculties.

To education, which Will and Ariel Durant defined as "the transmission of civilization.”

Cicero said, "To add a library to a house is to give that house a soul." It follows that to give a school a library is to give that school a soul. To our new library - the new soul of our school.”

To our library. As Mrs. Lyndon Baines Johnson said, "Perhaps no place in any community is so democratic as the town library. The only entrance requirement is interest.”
