„Я убежден, что наиболее важное отличие человеческого существа от всех прочих — это сила воображения.“

„Большинство людей не представляют себе, на что они способны, не знают, в чем на самом деле состоят их таланты, каковы их возможности. И многие потому заключают, что у них вообще нет никаких талантов.“


„Быть на своём месте — не значит быть успешным с коммерческой точки зрения. Но это гарантирует вам духовное удовлетворение.“

„Очень много людей неспособны обнаружить свои таланты: система расставляет свои приоритеты, она поощряет одни таланты и маргинализирует большинство других.“

„If you're not prepared to be wrong, you'll never come up with anything original.“ The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything

„The fact is that given the challenges we face, education doesn't need to be reformed -- it needs to be transformed. The key to this transformation is not to standardize education, but to personalize it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each child, to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions.“ The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything

„Creativity is as important as literacy“

„Human resources are like natural resources; they're often buried deep. You have to go looking for them, they're not just lying around on the surface. You have to create the circumstances where they show themselves.“


„For most of us the problem isn’t that we aim too high and fail - it’s just the opposite - we aim too low and succeed.“ The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything

„Imagination is the source of every form of human achievement. And it's the one thing that I believe we are systematically jeopardizing in the way we educate our children and ourselves.“

„We have to go from what is essentially an industrial model of education, a manufacturing model, which is based on linearity and conformity and batching people. We have to move to a model that is based more on principles of agriculture. We have to recognize that human flourishing is not a mechanical process; it's an organic process. And you cannot predict the outcome of human development. All you can do, like a farmer, is create the conditions under which they will begin to flourish.“

„Curiosity is the engine of achievement.“


„We have sold ourselves into a fast food model of education, and it's impoverishing our spirit and our energies as much as fast food is depleting our physical bodies.“

„When my son, James, was doing homework for school, he would have five or six windows open on his computer, Instant Messenger was flashing continuously, his cell phone was constantly ringing, and he was downloading music and watching the TV over his shoulder. I don’t know if he was doing any homework, but he was running an empire as far as I could see, so I didn’t really care.“ The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything

„Creativity is as important now in education as literacy and we should treat it with the same status.“

„Our task is to educate their (our students) whole being so they can face the future. We may not see the future, but they will and our job is to help them make something of it.“ The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything
