Layne Staley
Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it.
Samuel Johnson
There are some things which cannot be learned quickly, and time, which is all we have, must be paid heavily for their acquiring. They are the very simplest things and because it takes a man’s life to know them the little that each man gets from life is very costly and the only heritage he has to leave.
Ernest Hemingway
We all are learning, modifying, or destroying ideas all the time. Rapid destruction of your ideas when the time is right is one of the most valuable qualities you can acquire. You must force yourself to consider arguments on the other side.
Charlie Munger
All married couples should learn the art of battle as they should learn the art of making love.
Ann Landers
I cannot remember the books I’ve read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The earliest memories I have of the ocean are actually stories – stories from my grandfather, the legendary ocean explorer and conservationist Jacques Cousteau. My passion for ocean conservation stems from learning at a very young age that we’re all connected; we’re all in this together.
Philippe Cousteau, Jr.
Neurologically, I’m a quadriplegic, so virtually everything about my work has been driven by my learning disabilities, which are quite severe, and my lack of facial recognition, which I’m sure is what drove me to paint portraits in the first place.
Chuck Close
A scholar tries to learn something everyday; a student of Buddhism tries to unlearn something daily.
Alan Watts

Henry Adams
The important question is whether [a theory] is true, not whether envisioning an alternative is too intellectually painful to bear.
J. D. Trout
A person who can create ideas worthy of note is a person who has learned much from others.
Konosuke Matsushita
Learning, while at school, that the charge for the education of girls was the same as that for boys, and that, when they became teachers, women received only half as much as men for their services, the injustice of this distinction was so apparent.
Lucretia Mott
To study and not think is a waste. To think and not study is dangerous.
[In my home workshop,] generally I’m mending things, which is interesting because you learn a lot about why they broke.
James Dyson

Carrie Fisher
Learning to read music in Braille and play by ear helped me develop a damn good memory.
Ray Charles
Eventually, while researching, you’ll learn something you didn’t want to know. Some fact that ruins a plotline you had in mind. The good news is that sometimes, learning all the facts can make for a much more interesting story than you originally had in mind.
Andy Weir
Might I give counsel to any man, I would say to him, try to frequent the company of your betters. In books and in life, that is the most wholesome society; learn to admire rightly; the great pleasure of life is that. Note what great men admire.
William Makepeace Thackeray
Man can learn nothing unless he proceeds from the known to the unknown.
Claude Bernard
One can learn, at least. One can go on learning until the day one is cut off.
Fay Weldon
To understand a program, you must become both the machine and the program.
Alan Perlis
He is fortunate who had been able to learn the causes of things. -Felix qui potuit rerum cognoscere causas
You don’t need fancy highbrow traditions or money to really learn. You just need people with the desire to better themselves.
Adam Cooper
If someone is better than you at something, then it’s likely because she has failed at it more than you have. If someone is worse than you, it’s likely because he hasn’t been through all of the painful learning experiences you have.
Mark Manson
Only a fool learns from his own mistakes. The wise man learns from the mistakes of others.
Otto von Bismarck
Community development has a long history of innovation and learning from experience.
Ben Bernanke
Never begrudge the money you spend on your own education.
Jim Rohn
Among gardeners, enthusiasm and experience rarely exist in equal measures. The beginner dreams of home-grown bouquets and baskets of ripe fruit, the veteran of many seasons has learned to expect slugs, mildew, and frost.
Roger Swain
Jesus is why women have traveled continents, spent decades learning a strange language so they could translate the Gospel, planting churches, caring for the sick, educating the illiterate, and marching for the oppressed.
John Ortberg
Learning to trust is one of life’s most difficult tasks.

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.
George Washington Carver
By relieving the brain of all unnecessary work, a good notation sets it free to concentrate on more advanced problems, and in effect increases the mental power of the race.
Alfred North Whitehead
There is a profound difference between information and meaning.
Warren G. Bennis
In many ways, it was much, much harder to get the first book contract. The hardest thing probably overall has been learning not to trust people, publicists and so forth, implicitly.
Neil Gaiman
Successful software always gets changed.

I haven’t been that great at attending my own openings. Still, I’m learning to enjoy this a lot more than I used to.
James Turrell
On technology: The teacher is mightier than the mouse.
Andy Hargreaves
A true bubble is when something is overvalued and intensely believed. Education may be the only thing people still believe in in the United States. To question education is really dangerous. It is the absolute taboo. It’s like telling the world there’s no Santa Claus.
Peter Thiel
An education isn’t how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It’s being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you don’t. It’s knowing where to go to find out what you need to know, and it’s knowing how to use the information once you get it.
William Feather
You always pass failure on the way to success.
Mickey Rooney
We flew down weekly to meet with IBM, but they thought the way to measure software was the amount of code we wrote, when really the better the software, the fewer lines of code.

I was open to taking risks and learning from my mistakes.
Riya Sen
The greatest education in the world is watching the masters at work.
Michael Jackson
Education costs money. But then so does ignorance.
Claus Moser, Baron Moser
An inventor fails 999 times, and if he succeeds once, he’s in. He treats his failures simply as practice shots.
Charles Kettering
While learning to code may have once been an arduous or expensive process, the college dropouts who developed Codecademy have democratized coding as surely as Gutenberg democratized text. Anyone can go to Codecademy and start learning and creating code through their simple, fun, interactive window, for free.
Douglas Rushkoff
A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.

Fred Astaire
It is only when we forget all our learning that we begin to know.
Henry David Thoreau
Deficiency motivation doesn’t work. It will lead to a life-long pursuit of try to fix me. Learn to appreciate what you have and where and who you are.
Wayne Dyer
If children are apparently unable to learn, we should assume that we have not as yet found the right way to teach them.
Marie Clay
The destiny of man is not measured by material computations. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we’re spirits—not animals…. There’s something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.
Winston Churchill
If I were given the opportunity to present a gift to the next generation, it would be the ability for each individual to learn to laugh at himself.
Charles M. Schulz
I’m glad I understand that while language is a gift, listening is a responsibility. (U.S. poet and writer, 1943- )
Nikki Giovanni
Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
George Bernard Shaw
Writers the most learned, the most accurate in details, and the soundest in tendency, frequently fall into a habit which can neither be cured nor pardoned,-the habit of making history into the proof of their theories.
Lord Acton
If we put together all that we have learned from anthropology and ethnography about primitive men and primitive society, we perceive that the first task of life is to live. Men begin with acts, not with thoughts.
William Graham Sumner
Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as a hard duty.
Albert Einstein
In software design, it’s all about making a guess, trying it, and then learning from the experience.
Stewart Butterfield
I maintained my edge by always being a student; you will always have something new to learn.
Jackie Joyner-Kersee
The more the years go by, the less I know. But if you give explanations and understand everything, then nothing can happen. What helps me go forward is that I stay receptive, I feel that anything can happen.
Anouk Aimee
Each man must look to himself to teach him the meaning of life. It is not something discovered: it is something molded.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I suppose I am a frustrated musician so I annoy my family by playing guitar in the house. I used to be into acoustic stuff but my son Joseph is learning drums, so now I have an electric guitar and we play Metallica. We have an amp and a PA in the garage with his drum kit.
Kevin McKidd
Make the work interesting and the discipline will take care of itself.
E. B. White
We are learning, too, that the love of beauty is one of Nature’s greatest healers.
Ellsworth Huntington
All subjects are the same. I memorize notes for a test, spew it, ace it, then forget it. What makes this scary for the future of our country is that I’m in the tip-top percentile on every standardized test. I’m a model student with a very crappy attitude about learning.
Megan McCafferty
Economic necessity should be the mother of educational invention
Andy Hargreaves
I liked learning things. I liked solving problems and doing my homework. I realize a lot of kids don’t like that, but I always enjoyed going to school.
Shannon Walker
Learning from programmed information always hides reality behind a screen.
Ivan Illich
I started learning filmmaking by joining a weekend film school in Bengaluru. I made some amateur short films that got appreciation from people around me.
Karthik Subbaraj
Learning starts with failure; the first failure is the beginning of education.
John Hersey
Probably the most important skill that children learn is how to learn. … Too often we give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve. This is a mistake.
Roger Lewin
That experience with ‘Rent’ went by so fast. I was younger. I didn’t even really know what opening night was. And now I’m thinking back on the times I went to Broadway as a kid and the excitement I felt… And I’m realizing that I’m actually a part of that, so I’m learning to take it in, ’cause so often I shrug it away.
Idina Menzel
What we want… is for students to get more interested in things, more involved in them, more engaged in wanting to know; to have projects that they can get excited about and work on over long periods of time, to be stimulated to find things out on their own.
Howard Gardner
Your role as a leader is even more important than you might imagine. You have the power to help people become winners.
Ken Blanchard
We always hate the school room where we learn hard lessons. But then we love it, because that’s the school that taught us all we know, and gave us all the strength we have.
Gwen Bristow
The main part of intellectual education is not the acquisition of facts, but learning how to make facts live.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Being involved in sports and having a very sport orientated family just helped the transition extremely well. I guess, in a way, your school colleagues saw you out and about, and you were part of the team you were getting into the Australian way, learning the language. The transition was extremely smooth.
Saroo Brierley
It is in falling down that we learn almost everything that matters spiritually.
Richard Rohr
At UCLA I quickly learned the knack of getting grades, a craven surrender to custom, since grades had little to do with learning.
Hugh Nibley
You never stop learning in F1. It’s the typical thing that all drivers say, but it’s absolutely true. But also, apart from driving, you learn a bit about the political side of F1. People don’t realise how much there is outside the car.
Carlos Sainz Jr.
What spectacle can be more edifying or more seasonable, than that of Liberty and Learning, each leaning on the other for their mutual and surest support?
James Madison
Only when the tide goes out do you discover who’s been swimming naked.
Warren Buffett
Learning how to understand how technology evolves, using tools like a Technology Road Map, is what you need more than anything to ride on top of the tsunami instead of being crushed by it.
Peter Diamandis
If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.
Albert Einstein
The learning process continues until the day you die.
Kirk Douglas
The act of learning itself is no longer seen as simply a matter of information transfer, but rather as a process of dynamic participation, in which students cultivate new ways of thinking and doing, through active discovery and discussion, experimentation and reflection.
Susan C. Aldridge
He who knows how to teach a child is not competent for the oversight of a child’s education unless he also knows how to train a child.
Henry Clay Trumbull
Infants and young children are not just sitting twiddling their thumbs, waiting for their parents to teach them to read and do math. They are expending a vast amount of time and effort in exploring and understanding their immediate world. Healthy education supports and encourages this spontaneous learning.
David Elkind
Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
Denis Waitley
We have two strategies for coping; the way of avoidance or the way of attention.
Marilyn Ferguson
Example is leadership.
Albert Schweitzer
We have dominated and overruled nature, and from now on the earth is ours, a kitchen garden until we learn to make our own chlorophyll and float it out in the sun inside plastic mebranes. We will build Scarsdale on Mount Everest.
Lewis Thomas
The self taught man seldom knows anything accurately, and he does not know a tenth as much as he could have known if he had worked under teachers, and besides, he brags, and is the means of fooling other thoughtless people into going and doing as he himself has done.
Mark Twain
It is what we think we know that keeps us from learning.
Chester Barnard
The greatest failure is the failure to try.
William Arthur Ward
High school was interesting. For a lot of people, high school was just a big social experiment, and I think the value of high school was not so much learning how to be a great student… but I think it’s learning how to interact with people and be social. I would say that in that endeavor, I completely failed.
Jonny Kim
When I started learning the cello, I fell in love with the instrument because it seemed like a voice – my voice.
Mstislav Rostropovich
Man seeks to learn, and man kills himself because of the loss of cohesion in his religious society; he does not kill himself because of his learning. It is certainly not the learning he acquires that disorganizes religion; but the desire for knowledge wakens because religion becomes disorganized.
Emile Durkheim
A school should not be a preparation for life. A school should be life.
Elbert Hubbard
I’m a firm believer in learning by heart.
Seamus Heaney
One cannot guess how a word functions. One has to look at its use and learn from that. But the difficulty is to remove the prejudice which stands in the way of doing this. It is not a stupid prejudice.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
It’s important to be innovative when times are prosperous. It’s essential to be innovative when they are not.
Andy Hargreaves
Learning (Shakespeare’s plays) …in school was a bit of a bore.
Al Pacino
Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.
Frank Lloyd Wright
Learning itself, received into a mind
By nature weak, or viciously inclined,
Serves but to lead philosophers astray,
Where children would with ease discern the way.
William Cowper
Of course, there are ups and downs in cricket always, but that’s how you learn. I am too young, and what I constantly do is learn from my seniors. They have been in tough situations, and they know how to tackle them. I just keep learning.
Rishabh Pant
Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for stars.
Casey Kasem
I am dumb when it comes to learning dance steps.
Mia Kirshner
Freedom is control in your own life. I have more control now than in the past, and I’m learning the value of saying no. That’s very important.
Willie Nelson
When someone is taught the joy of learning, it becomes a life-long process that never stops, a process that creates a logical individual. That is the challenge and joy of teaching.
Marva Collins
Let proportion be found not only in numbers and measures, but also in sounds, weights, times, and positions, and what ever force there is.
Leonardo da Vinci
You have to think for your team-mates and give them positive response. Whatever happens as a captain you have to take the responsibility. Backing my team-mates and supporting them was the biggest learning.
Ajinkya Rahane
I think one of the keys is to celebrate intelligent failures and when things don’t work, learn from those. Celebrate learning more than we celebrate the failure itself.
Doug McMillon
Just as eating against one’s will is injurious to health, so studying without a liking for it spoils the memory, and it retains nothing it takes in.
Leonardo da Vinci
Learning to cook at school gave me the confidence to experiment in the kitchen when I left home in my late teens – I wasn’t intimidated by it.
Jack Monroe
If you’re not learning, then you’re stagnant. If you’re stagnant, then you’re not evolving and the business isn’t progressing.
Seth Rollins
For the truth of the conclusions of physical science, observation is the supreme Court of Appeal.

The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them.
Mark Twain
When I was learning to drive, I thought the big milestones were changing gear, changing lane, and three-point-turns.
Victoria Coren Mitchell
Men grind and grind in the mill of a truism, and nothing comes out but what was put in. But the moment they desert the tradition for a spontaneous thought, then poetry, wit, hope, virtue, learning, anecdote, and all flock to their aid.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
One piece of advice I often give young singers, including my son Vijay, is to not get sidetracked from their primary duty of learning music. This is the age of marketing and hard sell. Everybody wants instant results. But no amount of hard sell will prop you up if you don’t hone your craft.
K. J. Yesudas
You discover yourself through the research of your work.
Carine Roitfeld
A love of books, of holding a book, turning its pages, looking at its pictures, and living its fascinating stories goes hand-in-hand with a love of learning.
Laura Bush
Gardening is a labour full of tranquility and satisfaction; natural and instructive, and as such contributes to the most serious contemplation, experience, health and longevity.
John Evelyn
When you teach a child something you take away forever his chance of discovering it for himself.
Jean Piaget
I’m open for possibilities. I’m open for choices. I always welcome new ideas. I’m always eager to learn. I’m never going to close my mind from learning.
Cesar Millan
I feel I have learnt a lot on the sets of ‘Beyond The Clouds,’ and it will be a life-long learning for me.
Ishaan Khatter
Through learning we re-create ourselves. Through learning we become able to do something we were never able to do.
Peter Senge
It would be idle, and presumptuous, to wish to imitate the achievements of a Morphy or an Alekhine; but their methods and their manner of expressing themselves are within the reach of all.
Eugene Znosko-Borovsky
If you always do what interests you, at least one person is pleased.
Katharine Hepburn
Literacy is much more than an educational priority – it is the ultimate investment in the future and the first step towards all the new forms of literacy required in the twenty-first century. We wish to see a century where every child is able to read and to use this skill to gain autonomy.
Irina Bokova
The world is a university and everyone in it is a teacher. Make sure when you wake up in the morning you go to school.
T. D. Jakes
You cannot switch teachers on and off as if they were PowerPoint presentations.
Andy Hargreaves
Everything is a learning experience, both good and bad that happen to you. You take what happens and learn from it. That’s how I look at everything, the good and bad. You learn about it, and you improve.
Markelle Fultz
Learn your language well and command it well, and you will have the first component to life.
Edward R. Murrow
People will listen when they’re ready to listen and not before. Don’t waste time with people who want to argue. They’ll keep you immobilized forever. Look for people who are already open to something new.
Daniel Quinn
Learners inherit the earth; while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.
Eric Hoffer
You have to study a great deal to know a little.
Baron de Montesquieu
A programming language is like a natural, human language in that it favors certain methaphors, images, and ways of thinking.
Seymour Papert
C. S. Lewis pointed out that some people are angry with God for His not existing, and others for His existing but for failing to do as mortals would have Him do. Instead of such childishness, we are urged to know God and to learn of His attributes.
Neal A. Maxwell
Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning.
William Arthur Ward
Knowledge is more a matter of learning than of the exercise of absolute judgment. Learning requires time, and in time the situation dealt with, as well as the learner, undergoes change.
Frank Knight
Education… has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan
He who has no inclination to learn more will be very apt to think that he knows enough.
John Powell
Since growth is the characteristic of life, education is all one with growing; it has no end beyond itself. The criterion of the value of school education is the extent in which it creates a desire for continuous growth and supplies means for making the desire effective in fact.
John Dewey
I do not teach children, I give them joy.
Isadora Duncan
I can tell you, honest friend, what to believe: believe life; it teaches better that book or orator.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Four years was enough of Harvard. I still had a lot to learn, but had been given the liberating notion that now I could teach myself.
John Updike
You can finish school, and even make it easy – but you never finish your education, and it’s seldom easy.
Zig Ziglar
Education is the key to unlocking the world, a passport to freedom.

Have I a secret about playing the piano? It’s a very simple one. I sit down on the piano stool and make myself comfortable – and I always make sure that the lid over the keyboard is open before I start to play.
Artur Schnabel
Sometimes it’s smart to be scared.
Cynthia Lewis
A leader these days needs to be a host – one who convenes diversity; who convenes all viewpoints in creative processes where our mutual intelligence can come forth.

You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.
Dr. Seuss
I remember learning as a kid that love meant loneliness and confusion.

Renee Zellweger
The only way someone can be of help to you is in challenging your ideas.
Anthony de Mello
If you want to be constructive in politics, the less you look back, the better. If you do look back, then it can only be to learn for yourself through the events that have taken place.
Angela Merkel
A professor can never better distinguish himself in his work than by encouraging a clever pupil, for the true discovers are among them, as comets amongst the stars.
Carl Linnaeus
The Holy Bible is like a mirror before our mind’s eye. In it we see our inner face. From the Scriptures we can learn our spiritual deformities and beauties. And there too we discover the progress we are making and how far we are from perfection.
Pope Gregory I
In those parts of the world where learning and science has prevailed, miracles have ceased; but in those parts of it as are barbarous and ignorant, miracles are still in vogue.
Ethan Allen
The only jewel which will not decay is knowledge.
John Alfred Langford
Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.
Earl Nightingale
I learned the value of hard work by working hard.
Margaret Mead
When it comes to choreography practice, the rest of the five members learn from the dance instructor while Rap Monster and I are excluded from the group and end up learning the moves in the corner.
He will therefore have to use what knowledge he can achieve, not to shape the results as the craftsman shapes his handiwork, but rather to cultivate a growth by providing the appropriate environment, in the manner in which the gardener does this for his plants.
Friedrich August von Hayek
The best way of learning to be an independent sovereign state is to be an independent sovereign state.
Kwame Nkrumah
Studying literature at Harvard is like learning about women at the Mayo clinic.
Roy Blount, Jr.
Knowledge increases in proportion to its use; that is, the more we teach the more we learn.
H. P. Blavatsky
The ego is frightened by death, because ego is part of the incarnation and ends with it. That is why we learn to identify with our soul, as the soul continues after death. For the soul, death is just another moment.

Anil Ambani
I delight in the diffusion of learning; yet, I must confess it, I am most gratified and transported at finding a large quantity of it in one place; just as I would rather have a solid pat of butter at breakfast, than a splash of grease upon the table-cloth that covers half of it.
Walter Savage Landor
No one can look back on his schooldays and say with truth that they were altogether unhappy.
George Orwell
To survive and even thrive in a changing world, nature offers another great lesson: the survivors are those who at the least adapt to change, or even better learn to benefit from change and grow intellectually and personally. That means careful listening and constant learning.
Frances Arnold
A certain awkwardness marks the use of borrowed thoughts; but as soon as we have learned what to do with them, they become our own.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
My kids miss me when I’m away, but I don’t mind living out of a suitcase. The U.K., U.S., France, Germany, Iraq… it’s such a thrill meeting people of different cultures, learning about and from them. It’s changed my perception about life, humanity and spirituality.
A. R. Rahman
Learn first to love yourself, and then you can love me.

Edmund Burke
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

The bookful blockhead ignorantly read, With loads of learned lumber in his head, With his own tongue still edifies his ears, And always list’ning to himself appears. All books he reads, and all he reads assails.
Alexander Pope
A little learning is a dangerous thing; Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring.
Alexander Pope

There is less flogging in our great schools than formerly-but then less is learned there; so what the boys get at one end they lose at the other.
Samuel Johnson
If you wait until you’re really sure, you’ll never take off the training wheels.
Cynthia Lewis
By trying we can easily learn to endure adversity. Another man’s, I mean.
Mark Twain
Every learner has special needs.
Andy Hargreaves
The big thing is, it’s about learning which off-speed pitches to swing at. A lot of people say, ‘Oh, this guy can’t hit a curveball; this guy can’t hit an off-speed pitch.’ But it’s about swinging at the right one. Swing at the hangers. Swing at the ones you can handle.
Aaron Judge
I constantly want to be learning, growing and better understanding things. And see where that takes us.
Kirk Cousins
Do the best you can in every task, no matter how unimportant it may seem at the time. No one learns more about a problem than the person at the bottom.
Sandra Day O’Connor
I would rather entertain and hope that people learned something than educate people and hope they were entertained.
Walt Disney
Singaporeans are food people, period. My first memories, let alone of food, were of sitting on the floor of the kitchen with my mother, watching her pound aromatics to make sambal and later on, learning to stuff wonton pastry.
Melissa Leong
There are three ingredients in the good life: learning, earning and yearning.
Christopher Morley
Mentors turn into tormentors if they believe they are always right.
Andy Hargreaves
Shall I tell you the secret of the true scholar? It is this: every man I meet is my master in some point, and in that I learn of him.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
He was twenty. I remembered twenty. I’d known everything at twenty. It took me another year to realize I knew nothing. I was still hoping to learn something before I hit thirty, but I wasn’t holding my breath.
Laurell K. Hamilton
Learning by doing, peer-to-peer teaching, and computer simulation are all part of the same equation.
Nicholas Negroponte
We merely want to live in peace with all the world, to trade with them, to commune with them, to learn from their culture as they may learn from ours, so that the products of our toil may be used for our schools and our roads and our churches and not for guns and planes and tanks and ships of war.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
I am often amazed at how much more capability and enthusiasm for science there is among elementary school youngsters than among college students.
Carl Sagan
The early years were more about learning than about acting.
I had to carry on my father’s work, which was a big challenge.
Azim Premji
While we teach, we learn.
Seneca the Younger
The drive to learn is as strong as the sexual drive. It begins earlier and lasts longer
Edward T. Hall
Anyone who stops learning is old — whether this happens at twenty or at eighty. Anyone who keeps on learning not only remains young but becomes constantly more valuable — regardless of physical capacity.
Henry Ford
Nature is not cruel, only pitilessly indifferent. This is one of the hardest lessons for humans to learn. We cannot admit that things might be neither good nor evil, neither cruel nor kind, but simply callous-indifferent to all suffering, lacking all purpose.
Richard Dawkins
one learns best, and writes best, in a state of defiance.
Fay Weldon
Some infrastructure projects clearly require massive, coordinated investment – interstate highways or a new trans-Hudson tunnel, for instance. Others don’t have to. We should be unafraid of pilot projects and learning.
Cathy Engelbert
If this validates anything, it’s that learning how to bunt and hit-and-run and turning two is more important than knowing where to find the little red light on the dugout camera.
Ryne Sandberg
Read at every wait; read at all hours; read within leisure; read in times of labor; read as one goes in; read as one goest out. The task of the educated mind is simply put: read to lead.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
To live a single day and hear a good teaching is better than to live a hundred years without knowing such teaching.
Gautama Buddha
As turning the logs will make a dull fire burn, so change of studies a dull brain.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
We have never been so rich in books. But there has never been a generation when there is so much twaddle in print for children.
Charlotte Mason
Then welcome each rebuff That turns earth’s smoothness rough, Each sting that bids nor sit nor stand, but go! Be our joys three-parts pain! Strive, and hold cheap the strain; Learn, nor account the pang; dare, never grudge the throe!
Robert Browning
I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.
Louisa May Alcott
Today, cultural and legal changes mean that individuals expect and demand a voice in decisions that affect their lives and often they have the power to undermine those decisions if they aren’t allow their voice.
Daniel Yankelovich
But let me say this about learning experiences: they’re weird. Or put it this way: what you learn from a learning experience is generally something else.
Peg Bracken
I like learning. I’ve been studying Japanese for years now, but it’s really hard.
I’ve led a school whose faculty and students examine and discuss and debate every aspect of our law and legal system. And what I’ve learned most is that no one has a monopoly on truth or wisdom. I’ve learned that we make progress by listening to each other, across every apparent political or ideological divide.
Elena Kagan
I was learning book-keeping at the age of 12, but it never stopped me from pursuing literature. Over the years, I grew to love the written word.
Ashwin Sanghi
I’m learning that you can be comfortable and still look beautiful.
Selena Gomez
One or two bad teachers is a problem with the teachers. A school with many bad teachers is a problem of leadership.
Andy Hargreaves
If you are a man of learning, read something classic, a history of the human struggle and don’t settle for mediocre verse.
I knew nothing about martial arts. The coach told me I was talented with learning martial arts, and put me in a school. Three years later I got my first championship in China.
Jet Li
It’s very rare that you can be in a career for as long as I have and still feel like you’re constantly learning and coming at it from an almost childlike perspective.
Timothy Olyphant
It is never easy to win but it is a lot easier to win when you play well. The key is winning golf tournaments when you are not playing so well. Managing your game is something that I feel that I am still learning to do.
Rory McIlroy
There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.
Benjamin Disraeli
Failure is a great teacher, and I think when you make mistakes and you recover from them and you treat them as valuable learning experiences, then you’ve got something to share.
Steve Harvey
I loved learning, it was school I hated. I used to cut school to go learn something.
Eric Jensen
Take those chances and you can achieve greatness, whereas if you go conservative, you’ll never know. I truly believe what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Even if you fail, learning and moving on is sometimes the best thing.
Danica Patrick
Children have to be educated, but they have also to be left to educate themselves.
Ernest Dimnet
Question authority; but, raise your hand first.

To achieve our goals of educating bold and ambitious children, we must invest in enriching, quality early child care and learning.
Stacey Abrams
pity me that the heart is slow to learn what the swift mind beholds at every turn.
Edna St. Vincent Millay
What we do not understand we do not possess.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I just feel like I’m becoming a better person. My music is just getting better. Learning the game better, learning how to move, learning how to create – everything’s just growing.
21 Savage
There is no one who cannot derive great help and great benefit from learning; but there are also only a few people who do not receive a great harm from the light and knowledge they have received by learning, unless they use their knowledge in a manner both fit and natural for them.
Madeleine de Souvre, marquise de Sable
I am learning the importance of living in the moment.
Sushant Singh Rajput
Don’t limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabindranath Tagore
The only power you have on this planet is the power of your decisions.
Paulo Coelho
Don’t fear failure. Not failure, but low aim, is the crime. In great attempts it is glorious even to fail.
Bruce Lee
You’re never too old to start learning, and you’re never too young to aim high and achieve great things.
Asa Hutchinson
Action in war is like movement in a resistant element. Just as the simplest and most natural of movements, walking, cannot easily be performed in water, so in war, it is difficult for normal efforts to achieve even moderate results.
Carl von Clausewitz
Learning is a result of listening, which in turn leads to even better listening and attentiveness to the other person. In other words, to learn from the child, we must have empathy, and empathy grows as we learn.
Alice Miller
Be studious in your profession, and you will be learned. Be industrious and frugal, and you will be rich. Be sober and temperate, and you will be healthy. Be in general virtuous, and you will be happy.
Benjamin Franklin
You can either keep peddling, get off the bike or fall over.
Cynthia Lewis
Truth is the only safe ground to stand on.

Alva Myrdal
The most important part of teaching is to teach what it is to know.
Simone Weil
I think it’s so important to keep learning and keep your brain active.
Beverley Mitchell
It is a monstrous thing to force a child to learn Latin or Greek or mathematics on the ground that they are an indispensable gymnastic for the mental powers. It would be monstrous even if it were true.
George Bernard Shaw
As long as I keep it real, I learn something from everyone. And when you view yourself as a student and not as somebody who’s bigger, there is still learning that can be done every day, and that keeps you open-minded and more ready to learn about life and love.
J Balvin
The first object of any act of learning, over and beyond the pleasure it may give, is that it should serve us in the future. Learning should not only take us somewhere; it should allow us later to go further more easily.
Ted Sizer
It is better to learn late than never.
Publilius Syrus
Live to learn . . . forget . . . and learn again.
Aristide Briand

Elijah Muhammad
If we’re all on the same page, no one’s reading the whole book.
Andy Hargreaves
It takes the whole of life to learn how to live, and – even more surprising – it takes the whole of life to learn how to die.
Seneca the Younger
I can install toilets. I know all about the wax ring. I can tile floors. I’m learning how to do basic wiring.
Sandra Bullock
There is no algorithm for creativity.
Andy Hargreaves
It is the greatest of all mistakes to begin life with the expectation that it is going to be easy, or with the wish to have it so.
Lucy Larcom
I would by no means wish a daughter of mine to be a progeny of learning.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Learning a new trick will just happen randomly when I’m skating and if I feel good doing it, I take it to a street spot. If I’m really confident in it I practice it a lot, so I can do it in a contest.
Nyjah Huston
In order to be big, you have to think big.
If you think small, you’re going to be small.
Emeril Lagasse
I know you think you understand what you thought I said, but I’m not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
Robert McCloskey
Wisdom is having things right in your life and knowing why.
William Stafford

Ken Robinson
I am always ready to learn although I do not always like being taught.
Winston Churchill
After the final no there comes a yes
And on that yes the future world depends.
Wallace Stevens
Part of what makes college football great is what you learn playing it. Being selfless, learning how to go through adversity as a group, learning about perseverance.
Kirk Herbstreit
Culture is the possibility and impossibility that bacon and fruit can appear on the same plate.
Andy Hargreaves
Perfect love casts out fear. Where there is love there are no demands, no expectations, no dependency. I do not demand that you make me happy; my happiness does not lie in you. If you were to leave me, I will not feel sorry for myself; I enjoy your company immensely, but I do not cling.
Anthony de Mello
There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.
Aldous Huxley
A fool learns nothing from a wise man; but a wise man learns from a fool.

Sustainable leadership does no harm to and actively improves the surrounding environment.
Andy Hargreaves
You are always learning; there is a lot of grey; don’t take things for granted.
Lisa Marie Presley
I’m gradually managing to cram my mind more and more full of things. I’ve got this beautiful mind and it’s going to die, and it’ll all be gone. And then I say, not in my case. Every idea I’ve ever had I’ve written down, and it’s all there on paper. And I won’t be gone; it’ll be there.
Isaac Asimov
If a man empties his purse into his head, no one can take it from him.
Benjamin Franklin
Growing up in the inner city, a lot of kids didn’t think reading was cool. I’m trying to show them that it is cool and the importance of growing and learning outside of their everyday lives, which is a lot of times sports.
C. J. McCollum
Learning too soon our limitations, we never learn our powers.
Mignon McLaughlin
There’s more learning than is taught in books.
Lady Gregory
Learning is what most adults will do for a living in the 21st century.
S. J. Perelman
In every case, the remedy is to take action. Get clear about exactly what it is that you need to learn and exactly what you need to do to learn it. BEING CLEAR KILLS FEAR. Make it thy business to know thyself, which is the most difficult lesson in the world.
Miguel de Cervantes
We have come to see that just as the child must learn to love wisely, so he must learn to hate expeditiously, to turn destructive tendencies away from himself toward enemies that actually threaten him rather than toward the friendly and the defenseless, the more usual victims of destructive energy.
Karl A. Menninger
Your choices decide your fate. Take the time to make the right ones. If you make a mistake, that’s fine; learn from it & don’t make it again.
Robert Kiyosaki
My father taught in the wise way which unfolds what lies in the child
Louisa May Alcott
It requires a very unusual mind to undertake the analysis of the obvious.
Alfred North Whitehead
I can’t sit down long enough to absorb any kind of learning.
Buddy Rich
No human being, past the thoughtless age of boyhood, will wantonly murder any creature which holds its life by the same tenure that he does.
Henry David Thoreau
Throughout the ages there have always been those who have been willing to go beyond the norms and reach for that unknown and distant star.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Learning the Italian was tough. I tried to really come at from a purist perspective, really learn the grammar, syntax and conjugations.
Timothee Chalamet
Newton was a genius, but not because of the superior computational power of his brain. Newton’s genius was, on the contrary, his ability to simplify, idealize, and streamline the world so that it became, in some measure, tractable to the brains of perfectly ordinary men.
Gerald Weinberg
Learn to say ‘no’ to the good so you can say ‘yes’ to the best.
John C. Maxwell
When we look at external things, we can usually distinguish those that are useful and valuable from those that are not. We must learn to look at our mind in the same way.
Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
But Chinese civilization has the overpowering beauty of the wholly other, and only the wholly other can inspire the deepest love and the profoundest desire to learn.
Joseph Needham
If you didn’t like somebody, you just let ’em know it, and hopefully that would square ’em away. Not only would they critique me, get on my case, but basically it was that kind of relationship. It was always a learning, team-building relationship.
Gene Kranz
We presuppose two things: that there is yet to be learned infinitely more than is now known, and that man can learn it.
John W. Campbell
Discovery consists of looking at the same thing as everyone else and thinking something different.
Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
Our society cannot afford a two-tiered system in which the affluent have access to superior education, while everyone else is subjected to a dull and incoherent classroom experience. Academic excellence, educational equity, and fairness demand a strong foundation of knowledge for all learners.
E. D. Hirsch, Jr.
Nothing in this world is a gift. Whatever must be learned must be learned the hard way.
Carlos Castaneda
Teachers create and transform energy. They are the dynamos of educational change.

Creativity is the process of having original ideas that have value
Ken Robinson
Knowledge never springs from faith. It springs from doubt.
Humayun Azad
The genius of any single man can no more equal learning, than a private purse hold way with the exchequer.

Khalil Gibran
Let us learn to skillfully draw good out of what would otherwise cause us harm.
Mary Euphrasia Pelletier
You don’t understand anything until you learn it more than one way.
Marvin Minsky
Vice may be learnt, even without a teacher
Seneca the Younger
Quality in education is what makes learning a pleasure and a joy.
Myron Tribus
I have to say I’ve made many mistakes, and been humbled many, many times. But you know what? It’s never too late to learn.
Kathy Ireland
When you have learned how to decide with God all decisions become as easy and as right as breathing. There is no effort and you will be led as gently as if you were being carried down a quiet path in summer.
Helen Schucman
Conversation is a meeting of minds with different memories and habits. When minds meet, they don’t just exchange facts: they transform them, reshape them, draw different implications from them, engage in new trains of thought. Conversation doesn’t just reshuffle the cards: it creates new cards.
Theodore Zeldin
No, I got a GED in my 30s. My kids know that I never stop learning, and they know I love reading. I have books overflowing everywhere. I am current on today’s events and I read the paper every day, and we talk about it, so they see that appetite.
Michael J. Fox
Machine learning is the science of getting computers to learn without being explicitly programmed.
Sebastian Thrun
I was not good in school. I could never read very fast or very well. I got tested for learning disabilities, for dyslexia. Then I got put on Ritalin and Dexedrine. I took those starting in the eighth grade. As soon as they pumped that drug into me, it would focus me right in.
Channing Tatum
Irregularity and want of method are only supportable in men of great learning or genius, who are often too full to be exact, and therefore they choose to throw down their pearls in heaps before the reader, rather than be at the pains of stringing them.
Joseph Addison
Just learning that you have MS is such a devastating shock.
Annette Funicello
What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child.
George Bernard Shaw
It is true that I should have been surprised in the past to learn that Professor Hardy had joined the Oxford Group. But one could not say the adverse chance was 1:10. Mathematics is a dangerous profession; an appreciable proportion of us go mad, and then this particular event would be quite likely.
John Edensor Littlewood
What is learned without pleasure is forgotten without remorse.
I had been learning Italian for years. I always loved Latin, but Italian is a living language; I’m writing in it now as well as reading it. It is so interesting delving further into language.
Jhumpa Lahiri
I’ve concluded that genius is as common as dirt. We suppress genius because we haven’t yet figured out how to manage a population of educated men and women. The solution, I think, is simple and glorious. Let them manage themselves.
John Taylor Gatto
Argument is meant to reveal the truth, not to create it.
Edward de Bono
Since every effort in our educational life seems to be directed toward making of the child a being foreign to itself, it must of necessity produce individuals foreign to one another, and in everlasting antagonism with each other.
Emma Goldman
If we want to solve a problem that we have never solved before, we must leave the door to the unknown ajar.
Richard P. Feynman
As there is no insignificant work, there is not an insignificant leader. All leaders need training…not just a few.
Quint Studer
Learning is the dictionary, but sense the grammar of science.
Laurence Sterne
He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
I think there’s too much emphasis placed on learning things by rote that you don’t really care about. So what happens to students in school is that they eventually lose interest in learning, because they’ve been forced to learn the required courses, rather than pursing their passion.
Jack Canfield
Learn all you can from the mistakes of others. You won’t have time to make them all yourself.
Alfred Sheinwold
The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice. And because we fail to notice there is little we can do to change until we notice how failing to notice shapes our thoughts and deeds.
R. D. Laing
Pick battles big enough to matter, small enough to win.
Jonathan Kozol
Physically, teachers are often alone in their own classrooms with no other adults for company. Psychologically, they never are.
Andy Hargreaves
Supposing is good, but finding out is better.
Mark Twain
In spite of some bad experiences, I’m a firm believer in the trial and error method of learning.
Andy Rooney
That’s what Chess is all about. One day you give your opponent a lesson, the next day he gives you one
Bobby Fischer
Be a harsh critic of your own wins.
Vasilios Kotronias
We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality.
Albert Einstein
I will consistently strive to learn by what I hear, see, and feel. I will write down the important things I learn, and I will do them.
Richard G. Scott
I spent thirty years learning manners, and I spent twenty years learning knowledge.
Abdullah ibn Mubarak
The thing about school is that if you’re forced into learning stuff, you’re not going to be into it.
Joey Ramone
A little learning is a dangerous thing; drink of it deeply, or taste it not, for shallow thoughts intoxicate the brain, and drinking deeply sobers us again.
Alexander Pope
We have a cultural notion that if children were not engineered, if we did not manipulate them, they would grow up as beasts in the field. This is the wildest fallacy in the world.
Joseph Chilton Pearce
Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.
Anthony J. D’Angelo
One of the things we learn in movies directed by men is what the ‘fantasy woman’ is. What we learn in movies directed by women is what real women are about. I don’t think that men see things wrong and women right, just that we do see things differently.
Jane Campion
My achievements in the field of chess are the result of immense hard work in studying theory.
Alexander Kotov
No Child Left Behind’s fourth-grade gains aren’t learning gains, they’re testing gains. That’s why they don’t last. The law is a distraction from things that really count.
Jonathan Kozol
America’s best teachers are always looking for new ways to bring learning to life.
Charles Best
Prepare for the unknown by studying how others in the past have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable.
George S. Patton
The average Ph.D. Thesis is nothing but a transference of bones from one graveyard to another.
J. Frank Dobie
There’s no learning without trying lots of ideas and failing lots of times.
Jonathan Ive
Imitation is being rewarded. They’re learning that if you fit right in the mold, you get rewarded. Music is no longer a form of expression – it’s a means to a lifestyle.
Mike Watt
Learning is the measurement of knowledge before and after.
Eben Pagan
Get out of bed, go to school, stick at school. Make it happen for yourself because those opportunities are waiting.
Andrew Forrest
Liberty without Learning is always in peril and Learning without Liberty is always in vain.
John F. Kennedy
Before an individual can be saved, he must first learn that he cannot save himself.
M. R. DeHaan
We have to become a learning society, committed to quality education from early childhood right through to re-training in later life.
Bill Shorten
We must dare, and dare again, and go on daring.
Georges Danton
And I believe that the best learning process of any kind of craft is just to look at the work of others.
Wole Soyinka
The parent knows that the child cannot be artificially motivated to learn; they know that he is already motivated by the strongest driving force on earth: his inner intent.
Joseph Chilton Pearce
I learn as much from a turtle as from a religious text.
Dalai Lama
God lets everything happen for a reason. It’s all a learning process, and you have to go from one level to another.
Mike Tyson
Defeat doesn’t finish a man, quit does.
Richard M. Nixon
Sometimes you have an idea that is so simple that you can’t see how it can fail. But in learning, being right is not always the quickest way to success
Donald Clark
