"If no other knowledge deserves to be called useful but that which helps to enlarge our possessions or to raise our station in society, then Mythology has no claim to the appellation."
"The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination."Thomas Bulfinch on Albert Einstein
"Information is not knowledge."Thomas Bulfinch on Albert Einstein
"A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots."Thomas Bulfinch on Marcus Garvey
"Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be."Thomas Bulfinch on Albert Einstein
"Ignorance is the curse of God knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven."Thomas Bulfinch on William Shakespeare
"For Mythology is the handmaid of literature and literature is one of the best allies of virtue and promoters of happiness."
"Without a knowledge of mythology much of the elegant literature of our own language cannot be understood and appreciated."
"Thus we hope to teach mythology not as a study, but as a relaxation from study to give our work the charm of a story-book, yet by means of it to impart a knowledge of an important branch of education."
