Chapter 7, Page 10, Book 18


I have always grown from my problems and challenges, from the things that don’t work out, that’s when I’ve really learned.

Carol Burnett

We are always growing 


Growth itself contains the germ of happiness.

Pearls S. Buck

We are always growing.   Growth is not an option, how we grow is.  Some of the greatest moments in our life revolve around learning something new, no matter how small it may be.

To learn is to grow and one of the greatest opportunities we have to learn is from each person we encounter.  Others minds hold experiences and insights we will never encounter.  We learn from others, and they can learn from us.

We should never stop growing as there is always more to learn. Learning comes from one another, from ourselves, from our past and from our hearts.  To think you know everything is to fail.    Life and growth is a never ending learning lesson. 
 

The purpose of learning is growth, and our minds, unlike our bodies can continue growing as we continue to live.

Mortimer Adler

I think it is essential that we continue to grow, no matter how old we may get. There is so much to discover about life, our world, ourselves, etc., that there is something indeed to learn new every single day!

Truth! What we learn from another -- sometimes only by observing -- may not always be pleasant, but always a Learning Experience. I need to consider, others may be looking at me and drawing their own conclusions.

Learning is not always easy is it?

I love growing and learning even at this age. I think it is good for us---that it is part of life itself--to learn something new and discover more of the world around us. xo Diana
