Thoughts of Dr. Radhakrishnan
The teacher is not the one who forces the facts into the mind of the student, but the real teacher. Which prepare him for the challenges of tomorrow.
God is not worshipped, but those people are worshipped. who claim to speak in his name.
If we look at the history of the world, then we will find that civilization has been built by the hands of those great sages and scientists. Those who have the power to think for themselves. Those who enter the depths of time and country. Find out their secrets. And use the knowledge thus acquired for world credit or public welfare.
Till then no freedom is true. Until he gets freedom of thought. No religious belief or political doctrine should hinder the search for truth.
The human mind can be put to good use only through education. Therefore, education should be managed by treating the world as a single entity.
Knowledge gives us power. Love gives us perfection.
The result of education should be a free creative person. Who can fight against historical circumstances and natural calamities.
Books are that tool. Through which we can build bridges between different cultures.
Reading books gives us the habit of solitude and true happiness.
All the organizations of the world will become ineffective. If the fact that knowledge is stronger than ignorance does not motivate them.
