You learn something every day if you pay attention. 

Ray LeBlond

January 20th - learning something new every day

I am always ready to learn although I do not always like being taught. 

Winston Churchill

Life is the province of learning, and the wisdom we acquire throughout our lives is the reward of existence. 

Life’s lessons can take many forms and present us with many challenges. There are scores of mundane lessons that help us learn to navigate with grace, poise, and tolerance in this world. And there are those once in a lifetime lessons that touch us so deeply that they change the course of our lives.

The difference between school and life? In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson. 

Todd Bodett

Learning helps us more easily and readily adapt to new situations.

It's a mistake, when life hands you a tough lesson, to think that you can get back at life by not learning it. 

Robert Brault

Yes, life has a way of teaching us lessons that we would never learn otherwise. Some of life’s lessons we would rather not have, some of what we learn we wish we did not have to, and that is exactly what makes life such an excellent teacher.  We learn to make the best out of things and grow from the most difficult of circumstances.

People learn something every day, and a lot of times it’s that what they learned the day before was wrong. 

Bill Vaughan

Every moment of life is like God saying, Look I know you messed up the last moment, but here’s a new one for you.  Each day brings something new our way and what we learn each day makes our lives worthwhile.

A day spent without learning something is a day wasted.

I liked that quote from Todd Bodett; that is so true about life; we do get a lot of tests that help us learn lessons about life. I like that the majority of lessons we learned can be beneficial for us if we just take the time to remember what we have learned and then how to avoid making the same mistake if that was what caused us to learn the lesson in the first place.
