Advice to Students
Advice to Students
  • Get all the education you can, whether you choose to be a doctor or a car mechanic.  Learn to be smart in your studies and do the very best you can.  You do not have to be a genius to get ahead; because, the work of the world is done by ordinary people who learned to work in an extraordinary way.  

Society will reward you according to your worth as it perceives that worth.  Educate both your mind and your hands to make a great contribution to society and serve others.  If getting an education means sacrifice, then sacrifice to take advantage of every educational opportunity that you can possibly afford.  That sacrifice will become one of the best investments you have ever made, and you will reap returns from it all the days of your life.  (President Gordon B. Hinckley in talks to youth and the LDS Business College January 2009)
  • Education is the great divide in this country.  It doesn't matter what your ethnic background or your socio-economic background is.  If you get a good education, you write your own ticket.  End of story.  No ifs, ands and buts about it.  And we need to be emphasizing that.  You know, one of the things that I tell people all the time is, during slavery, it was illegal to teach a slave to read.  Why do you think that was?  Because even those evil masters knew that an educated man is a free man.    (Dr. Ben Carson, 2016 presidential candidate, FoxNews.com, August 24, 2015)
