CHAPTER 2

INSPIRING QUOTES FOR STUDENTS

Education is no doubt demanding. The pursuit of knowledge may exact on students a great deal of pressure; it may sometimes be very tiresome and daunting. Students need all the encouragement and push they can ever get to never give up, bearing in mind the fact that the rewards of education may be life-long. Indeed, education never must be taken for granted and ought not to be restricted to the four walls of the classroom. It is an open secret that many of the world`s great achievers were life-long learners; their learning never ended in the classroom. Instead, they committed themselves to continuous learning. I have compiled inspiring and incisive quotes intended primarily to inspire students to reach for higher heights in the pursuit of knowledge. They are however not restricted to students – readers from all walks of life are sure to benefit from these gems of wisdom.
