The least of the work of learning is done in the classrooms.
There are three ingredients in the good life: learning, earning and yearning.
The word "teaching" is basically misleading. Schools cannot really teach; they can only instill a desire for learning.
You are to consider that learning is of great use to society; and though it may not add to the stock, it is a necessary vehicle to transmit to others. Learned men are the cisterns of knowledge, not the fountainhead.
Learning is the perception of differences; wisdom is the perception of similarities. The final statement of wisdom must be: Omnia sunt unum in Deo.
The books which help you most are those which make you think the most. The hardest way of learning is by easy reading: but a great book that comes from a great thinker - it is a ship of thought, deep freighted with truth and with beauty.

A little learning is a dangerous thing; drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring; their shallow draughts intoxicate the brain, and drink largely sobers us again.
The happiest hours of child-life should be in learning of the way to God.
The finest fruit of serious learning should be the ability to speak the word God without reserve or embarrassment. And it should be spoken without adolescent resentment, rather with some sense of communion, with reverence and with joy.
It is in learning music that many youthful hearts learn to love.
Wisdom consists, not in stumbling on truth by chance but in marking, learning, and inwardly digesting it.
He that has acquired learning and not practiced what he has learnt, is like a man who plows but sows no seed.
The mind is slow in unlearning what it has been long in learning.
When you stop learning, stop listening, stop looking and asking questions, always new questions, then it is time to die.
If the body is only the vehicle by which the soul can access the experience of physical living, then there is no real physical me. The soul (or life force) is the only real me. If you and I (the souls) want to achieve the most from this earthly lifetime, the more varied the experiences we should seek. That said, it’s too easy for you and me to fall into a comfort zone and try to avoid change. To keep this from happening, the experiences change rapidly as a result of the body moving from infancy though old age. The physical changes help to enhance our learning curve, our ability to serve, and our chance to evolve.
We believe in a life continuum, and eternal life. Each incarnation or lifetime on earth is 'just a day in the classroom'... We believe the plane of greatest learning is the physical plane. It is up to all of us to make the most of each carnation. We believe that all there is in the universe is energy... and all energy forms, from subatomic particles to stars, are in a constant state of change and transformation... that interpreting energy frequencies on sensory bands creates the reality in which each life-form lives.
The perfect method of learning is analogous to infection. It enters and spreads.
I find my joy of living in the fierce and ruthless battles of life, and my pleasure comes from learning something.
Abstracts, abridgments, summaries, etc., have the same use with burning-glasses - to collect the diffused rays of wit and learning in authors, and make them point with warmth and quickness upon the reader’s imagination.
