Sayings and Quotes Education

Education and knowledge is closely intertwined with character traits such as curiosity, inquisitiveness, openness or interest together. Knowing that you don't yet know much about a particular topic like the Climate change knows, for example, is a good quality to have. You'd better be inquisitive first and eager to discuss things second. We need to change the world - and our education is the key.
