I’ve been reflecting a lot recently. It’s wonderful that I’m reflecting, coz I always count my blessings when I do that.
These days I feel extraordinary to be able to continue learning, and am appreciating the moments I have with learning. I read some amazing quotations today, and decided that I should share with all of you.
“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening my axe”
“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.”
“You must learn day by day, year by year, to broaden your horizon. The more things you love, the more you are interested in, the more you enjoy, the more you are indignant about, the more you have left when anything happens.”
“Have you ever been at sea in a dense fog, when it seemed as if a tangible white darkness shut you in and the great ship, tense and anxious, groped her way toward the shore with plummet and sounding-line, and you waited with beating heart for something to happen? I was like that ship before my education began, only I was without compass or sounding line, and no way of knowing how near the harbor was. “Light! Give me light!” was the wordless cry of my soul, and the light of love shone on me in that very hour.”
“Education, therefore, is a process of living and not a preparation for future living.”
“In the case of good books, the point is not how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.”
