I found these gorgeous Israeli stamps on a great blog, Words and Eggs
. They were issued in 1972 to celebrate the countries rise in educational standards and illustrate stages of education (above - top to bottom):Elementary school
- "The beginning of wisdom is this: get wisdom..." (Proverbs 4:7)Secondary school
- "Train upon a child in the way he should go..." (Proverbs 22:6)Vocational training
- "... but all study of the law without labor comes to naught at the last..." (Pirkei Aboth 2)Academic training
- "...but you shall meditate on it day and night..." (Joshua 1:8)
