College Quotations

My mother said I must always be intolerant of ignorance but understanding of illiteracy. That some people, unable to go to school, were more educated and more intelligent than college professors.
Maya Angelou

You don't have to be a genius or a visionary or even a college graduate to be successful. You just need a framework and a dream.
Michael Dell

A college degree is the key to realizing the American dream, well worth the financial sacrifice because it is supposed to open the door to a world of opportunity.
Dan Rather

Education is the key to the future: You've heard it a million times, and it's not wrong. Educated people have higher wages and lower unemployment rates, and better-educated countries grow faster and innovate more than other countries. But going to college is not enough. You also have to study the right subjects.
Alex Tabarrok

Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
Mark Twain
