THE NOBLE MISSION OF GOOD EDUCATION
There is no doubt that the best investment is the one in education.
ON THE ROAD TO SUCCESS
Quality education is one of the key factors that guarantee a good professional and personal future. No-one is contesting this fact. However, when the topic which education can be considered good is mentioned, the opinions start to differ.
FUTURE TENSE SUCCESS
The success of an individual, an idea or a company is often hard to predict. But if there is a factor that increases exponentially the probability for future success, this is the good education of all involved in the initiative.
THE BIGGEST FORTUNE
When education is discussed, sometimes one can hear the opinion that this part of human development is overrated. The cases of university dropout Steve Jobs and of Steven Spielberg, who has no diploma in directing, are cited as affirmative examples.
RECIPE FOR SUCCESS
Education and the skill to learn and to transfer this knowledge to next generations are in the basis of human civilisation.
LEARNING IN FUTURE TENSE
One of the most edifying anecdotes that has reached us from Antiquity concerns a tragic event: the death of Socrates.
TO LEARN SUCCESS
He who studies will succeed: the old Bulgarian saying remains relevant in the 21st century as well.
