QUESTION: Quote about Learning and what is left over?

OK, So I remember hearing a famous quote that was something like:

"Learning is what you remember" or

"What's left over is learning" or

"The residue of education is learning" or

"Only what you remember is learning"

Does anyone know what I'm talking about, who or where this quote might be coming from? I want to use it to start an article and can't for the life of me figure out where this is from / the exact quote.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Education is what is left after all that has been learnt is forgotten.

* James Bryant Conant, diary as a Harvard freshman (1910-11)

Actually the Einstein quote is correct. But so is the Twain. Whether Einstein knew Twain's quip or not I don't know. But Charlie Parker used to say something similar to effect of Learn everything you can about music theory, then forget about it when you play. All of them are basically about synthesizing knowledge.

Are you thinking of the Albert Einstein Quote:  Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.

 Close but not cigar.... This is what Mark Twain said about schools: "Education consists mainly of what we have unlearned."
