One of my favorite quotation from W.B. Yeats

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. 
                                                      William Butler Yeats

One of my favorite Irish poets is William Butler Yeats. Here is a quotation from Yeats which exactly reflects my understanding of education. What do you think about this quotation? Do you agree with Yeats?  Does education lighting a fire or filling a pail? Let's vote it...:)

  1. Hi! Nice quotation. Here is one I like from Confucius: "He who learns but does not think, is lost. He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger." :)

    Did you know that you can add a POLL to your blog as a WIDGET to get your readers to vote on questions like this?

    You can also get widgets that will 'feed' in a new quote every day. Tools like these can add a lot of dynamic content to your blog, so that your readers will always see something new when they visit, even if you haven't had time to create a post. This will be quite useful when you are using a blog with students...or, in the case of young learners, with a blog aimed at communicating with their parents. :)
