With the rapid development of society, almost everyone wants to be educated. However, manypeople hold an erroneous view towards education. They think , probably most parents do, thatthrough education, they will, or their children will, turn out to be either prominent scholars orrich merchants. To them, education suggests merely fame or riches.
The aim of education, in my understanding, is set upon deeper and more important mentalaccomplishments and moral culture. When we study at school or at the university, we arecertainly aiming at a profound learning of various subjects, for that is one of the essentialthings and a fundamental indispensable for building up our future career. Equally importantis the moral education which we must receive either at school or at the university, for buildingour character.
On the other hand, education does not simply mean "going to school." We cannot considerourselves well-educated and superior just because we are the fortunate ones who can gosomewhere to study, thus looking down upon those who cannot get such golden chances asours. It is a truth univer sally known that that a doctor is different from a black smith is notbecause the former has received higher education and the latter has not.
To conclude my essay, I would like to quote an old saying "Learn whatever it may be, whenever you can, and whenever you will, " and this, I think , is the true meaning of education.
