Learning

Learning from one's enemies is the best way to love them.

The all-round liberally educated man, from Paleolithic times to the time when the earth shall become a cold cinder, will always be the same, namely, the man who follows his standards, of truth and beauty, who employs his learning and observation, his reason, his expression, for purposes of production, that is, to add something of his own to the stock of the world's ideas.

Learning, if rightly applied, makes a young man thinking, attentive, industrious, confident and wary; and an old man cheerful and useful. It is an ornament in prosperity, a refuge in adversity, an entertainment at all times; it cheers in solitude, and gives moderation and wisdom in all circumstances.

Learning is discovering that something is possible.

I have come to feel that the only learning which significantly influences behavior is self-discovered, self-appropriated learning.

For the learning of every virtue there is an appropriate discipline and for the learning of suspended judgment the best discipline is philosophy.

No man is the wiser for his learning.

The true order of learning should be: first, what is necessary; second, what is useful, and third, what is ornamental. To reverse this arrangement is like beginning to build at the top of an edifice.

Learning is the raising of character by the broadening of vision and the deepening of feeling.

If a man would register all his opinions upon love, politics, religion, learning, etc., beginning from his youth, and so go to old age, what a bundle of inconsistencies and contradictions would appear at last!

It is a great point of wisdom to hide ignorance, as to discover knowledge. To be proud of learning is the greatest ignorance.

It is a little learning, and but a little, which makes men conclude hastily. Experience and humility teach modesty and fear.

To be fond of learning is to be near to knowledge.

To be fond of learning is to be near to knowledge.

When we learn to give thanks, we are learning to concentrate not on the bad things, but on the good things in our lives.

Look at our present life circumstances, whatever they may be, as the raw material of our learning... We must stop regarding ourselves as victims of circumstances, and start to acknowledge that we are not here purely by accident. The master within is trying to help us wake up by confronting us with our current life situation, which contains all the lessons we need to learn in order to grow into more fully developed human beings.

Giving of yourself, learning to be tolerant, giving recognition and approval to others, remaining flexible enough to mature and learn - yields happiness, harmony, contentment and productivity. These are the qualities of a rich life, the bounteous harvest of getting along with people.

Human learning has often been an instrument, not a source, of hostility to religion.

I thought all the while, I was leaning how to live, but now I know, I was learning how to die.

That learning is most requisite which unlearns evil.
