Quote: Ray Bradbury on Endless Erroneous “Education”

Ray Bradbury (1920-2012) – American Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Writer

“I spent three days a week for 10 years educating myself in the public library, and it’s better than college. People should educate themselves – you can get a complete education for no money. At the end of 10 years, I had read every book in the library and I’d written a thousand stories.”

  1. I think the most important things you can teach your children are love of God, his Word, their church and the concept of critical thinking. If they have those three things ingrained in them they will do well in school, college and the workplace. I love having discussions about politics faith and other things with my teenage sons and my preteen daughter.

    I don’t just tell them what I believe, I tell them why I believe it. The result is at least for my oldest two boys, they are very grounded in their faith and philosophy of life, and it is not just because Dad said something. They have done the research for themselves, and have look at the other side on many other things, but found them lacking.

    • You are what’s missing in so many young children’s lives. Through radical feminism’s promotion of divorce, single motherhood, illegitimacy and same-sex marriage. Fathers are so important to their children development, especially when they get older and just for the reasons you mentioned. You would probably enjoy reading my post “Short Essay- Dad, are you the spiritual leader of your family?” Thank you for your insight.

  2. I am also self-educated. I love libraries. If parents instill in their children the love of reading, they can educate themselves. Most of the education in this country is liberal brainwash.

    • You’re absolutely right. The love of reading opens all doors. It’s probably the best thing you can leave to your kids and it’s also one of the best ways to offset the liberal brainwashing that they’ll be subjected to at school, especially if they go to college.
