Chapter 8, Page 28, Book 19



Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.

Albert Einstein

August 28th - back to school


You learn something every day if you pay attention.

Ray LeBlond


Back to school season creates a rush of excitement for the new year. It’s back to waking up early, packing lunches and getting homework done. It’ doesn’t matter how old you are,  I think it brings back memories for all of us. It does for me. Not only of my own school days but that of my own children too.



School days, school days
Good old fashioned rule days. 
Reading and writing and ‘rithmetick
Our teacher’s great and we learn ‘em quick.

Truly we never stop learning. Every day of my life I learn something new. Just because we don’t attend classes any more life it’s self is one big learning lesson. Life teaches much that school never could. The problem is that life moves us far along before we figure out what’s going on and the wisdom we hope to have gained is sometimes late in coming.


The capacity to learn is a gift, the ability to learn is a skill, the willingness to learn is a choice

Brian Herbert

Life can be unpredictable and though you some curves. Just say never and see what happens. To avoid the jolt when life’s surprises come yout way, be prepared by being open minded and maintain a positive mindset that welcomes life lessons offered.

Learn from the mistakes of others. An old proverb says, It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.


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

I like that Tom Bodett quote. That is so true. I'm going to "steal it." So true how we can keep learning every day even if not in the classroom and it is neat that we have so many wonderful ways to learn, books, documentaries, the internet to look things up, etc.
