The section of quotes below I have titles “quotes about education and success”. These quotes deal a lot with what it takes to achieve success in learning and education.
Of course, “success” is sort of a nebulous term. What one person views as success, another might view as status quo. For some success is raising their child to be a decent person, for another success might be about money. Or fame. Or power. Or happiness. Success can be many things, and it always lies in the eye of the beholder.
I have talked about success a lot here on DevelopGoodHabits.com. It is a popular concept for people trying to change their habits. Of course, they want to succeed.
They are trying to learn from the mistakes of others and thereby increase their own chances of success. This is the reason to read blogs and research before you make changes, after all.
I have also written a lot of quote posts, similar to this one, relating to success in its many forms and giving inspiration to those seeking to succeed.
If you want to check out these success quote posts, following is a short list.
