Malala Yousafzai Quotes about Education

Updated on April 16, 2016

Malala Yousafzai Quotes on Education

Malala is not just a girl; she is an IDEA - The idea that girls and women should be empowered through education and opportunities which scare the living daylights out of ‪‎theocratic & ‪stupid traditions.

From the bottom of my heart, all those critiquing Malala and attacking her should be ashamed. If you can't hear the message in her words, and how ashamed we should be that it takes a young teenager to set the world straight on the need for peace, education, love, and the importance of taking the high ground of forgiveness rather than wanting revenge, take a deep look in the mirror you are part of the problem. Just imagine if all of us took the path of forgiveness and wanted to engage in rebuilding our communities by picking up education rather than using our grievances to legitimize the use of violence that ends up hurting our own very communities the most, our world would take a completely different direction.

Malala Quotes

  1. Our real illiteracy is our inability to create.
  2. Some people reap their ‪‎money as if the money gives them ‪‎power. But I can assure you that the power is nothing if your people can't quality education.
  3. Your Attitude depends on who you are, but your power can not work by the Rule... Be wise and take a right step at a right time.
  4. Power is nothing if you people keep dying of disease and ‪‎starvation, power is nothing if your people can't live in ‪unity, power is nothing if your people have no peace... Please, all the ‪‎leaders educate your people well and make them proud.
  5. Experience and Determine both are killed to ‪success.
  6. Today performance depends on tomorrow... Yesterday has gone, be wise.
  7. Love comes to those who believe; please don’t try to lose any opportunity in your life. Because if one chance come to you and you depend on another one, that means you still lost something in your life.
  8. I hope we can educate the women and girls of this world to love themselves unconditionally even when the world doesn't.

Malala Yousafzai almost paid with her life her passion for equality and education for women in Pakistan. Malala Yousafzai was shot in her head and in her neck because she refused to live the rest of her life in ignorance or as a second-hand citizen. For those who have lived in extreme poverty, education is everything. It is through education by which victims of terrorism, violence, poverty and social exclusion can incorporate and participate fully in their societies. Through education, people around the world can break the chains of fanaticism and understand the world with a new perspective the analysis. People of the Middle East are tired of this culture of guns, soldiers, and military intervention. They want schools, they want scholarships, and they want colleges, universities, research programs. In other words, they want international respect and international inclusiveness. People from the Middle East reclaim understanding and respect, and not being used as a Gas Station by Western countries.

Pakistan has areas where women are not allowed to be educated. But it also has areas where educating a daughter is no different than educating a son. I have many cousins in Pakistan with masters and medical degrees. The main reason is not extremism or religion. Islam never forbids women from Learning. Women really need an education for their own well-being and for their children's. It is really sad when countries in war have conditions that prevent children from getting an education.

It is the national and international establishment responsible for keeping the people ignorant, to keep them away from the education, not the Taliban. Taliban itself a product of this establishment and the same establishment is responsible for a class oriented education system, madras’s, and growing business of private education. She is also responsible for to keep education designed upon religious line, again to keep people ignorant. Hence, it is this establishment, who by denying the children of downtrodden class, the right of healthy and scientific education, and pushing them toward madras’s, and consequently producing brutal fighters stuff for their nefarious objectives. Therefore, the children of poor are real victims. Malala's case is to divert the attention from the real problem, and I am totally convinced it is a staged drama to demonize this victim, who once were purely innocent and the establishment made them brutal creatures.

Taliban are not following the real principles of Islam, which does not fear education and certainly does not teach people to blow up schools, churches, polio workers, and markets but this is their twisted ideology and such extremism and terrorism are one of the biggest problems in Pakistan right now. Under their rule in Swat they had banned girls like Malala from going to school, and after the Pakistani army conducted a successful operation freeing them from Taliban rule the girls went back to school. Their evil mindset is a major problem -- and that is irrespective of any war going on. They are at war with polio workers, education activists, Pakistani Christians, Pakistani soldiers, politicians, and every liberal, Shia, Sufi; democracy loving, moderate person in Pakistan and completely innocent people, most of who have never bore arms against anyone else. And Malala's case does not divert attention from the real problems, but she is actively working for providing free education for those same children you are talking about, and doing so by not only speakign out against extremism and terrorism but also speaking out against poverty and wars.

I cannot understand why the Muslim community and especially Pakistanis are not taking full advantage of the Malala efforts for encouraging education to boys and girls of our people. She can be of great help to Pakistan. People who are criticizing her are in my opinion short sighted and ignorant.

There are several inspirational Malala quotes from a book but I like the line, It's pretty sad when kids have the best teacher and a great ability to learn just act as if it doesn't matter. When there are kids all around this world who would do anything for the education that is being provided to us?

Malala Yousafzai a Legend

Malala Yousafzai has the blessings and protection of the entire nonviolent movement; you can tell from her words that she is gifted and special. To be so young and state that she doesn't hate the men who shot her, and would educate their children is thinking well beyond her time. She has done what leaders, governments, and educated experts couldn't do.

Malala words aren't just incredible for her age, but they are incredible period. She has chosen to select the path of love our revenge and vengeance. That is a personal choice and she has chosen that despite surviving an attack on her life. That shows an incredible level of patience and faith in forgiveness and love. Regarding her classmates she made numerous comments on the way girls have suffered in Swat. She took that struggle and connected it with the larger struggle for equality. I hope she receives the protection and support of major people who continue to support and train her how to continue on walking the path of peace. She is destined for greatness.

      Riight Ben!

      Somehow a girl's success and dreams for improving her country can only be the work of an outside agency. Yes because the CIA has a program for training young girls and educating them, and then they wreak havoc in the country through education. All the instability is driven by girls in our world, even though factually most criminals and extremists have been typically male, but yes the girls who speak about their visions of peace, stability, education, and love will destroy nations.
