Top Lessons We Learn Quotes

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Johann Christoph Arnold

The common approach is, metaphorically speaking, to go out onto the sidewalk and to pick up all the banana skins, so that no one slips. Me, I go down early in the morning and drop more banana skins. People say, 'Well, why would you be doing that?' And I tell them, 'Teaching is not about trying to prevent people from falling down, it's about trying to get them to use their eyes.' If you take the banana skins away, you're saying that life is banana-skin free. Well, it is not. Life is full of banana skins.
I try to teach people to use their eyes, to look where they're stepping. It's my responsibility to respect people, to help them learn the lessons life teaches. When you slip on a banana skin and fall down, discuss what happened and learn from it. I think that it is actually unwise to get in between people and what life is trying to teach them, but we all have a responsibility for each other. — Johann Christoph Arnold

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Robin S. Sharma

Children come to us more highly evolved than adults to teach us the lessons we need to learn. — Robin S. Sharma

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Maggie Nelson

217. "We're only given as much as the heart can endure," "What does not kill you makes you stronger," "Our sorrows provide us with the lessons we most need to learn": these are the kinds of phrases that enrage my injured friend. Indeed, one would be hard pressed to come up with a spiritual lesson that demands becoming a quadriparalytic. The tepid "there must be a reason for it" notion sometimes floated by religious or quasi-religious acquaintances or bystanders, is, to her, another form of violence. She has no time for it. She is too busy asking, in this changed form, what makes a livable life, and how she can live it. — Maggie Nelson

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Bram Stoker

I shall put a bold face on, and if I do feel weepy, he shall never see it. I suppose it is one of the lessons that we poor women have to learn ... — Bram Stoker

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Jane Fonda

Have you noticed how we are presented with the same lessons, over and over and over, before a tipping point is reached? The lessons we need to learn circle round us, closing in, until finally we are ready to take them in. Take them in. Those are the words that matter, because until I had embodied the lessons I was supposed to learn, absorbed them into the warp and woof of my being, they didn't "take"; they remained a head trip and didn't lead to changes in my behavior. — Jane Fonda

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Seth Klarman

Below, we itemize some of the quite different lessons investors seem to have learned as of late 2009 - false lessons, we believe. To not only learn but also effectively implement investment lessons requires a disciplined, often contrary, and long-term-oriented investment approach. It requires a resolute focus on risk aversion rather than maximizing immediate returns, as well as an understanding of history, a sense of financial market cycles, and, at times, extraordinary patience. — Seth Klarman

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Alex Harris

Unfortunately we often get praise for things that weren't particularly difficult to achieve. If we focus on the props and encouragement of those who have low expectations for us, we become mediocre. It can be challenging to set our sights on excellence, particularly when we're hearing that we're already there. One of life's greatest lessons, which we all must learn, could be expressed in the phrase "That was nothing. Watch this." Challenge yourself and others to call the normal things normal and save that word excellent for things that really are. — Alex Harris

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Harlan Ellison

The mistake we all make is in assuming anybody remembers anydamnthing from one day to the next. If that were true, we'd stop getting involved with approximately the same kind of wrong lover each time, we'd learn the lessons of history, the death penalty would discourage those plotting murder, and George Santayana's famous quote would be about as popular as "the bee's knees." But few of us keep accurate records of what we've learned as we hobble through life barking our shins in the dark on experiences we've already had ... — Harlan Ellison

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Melody Beattie

We learn the magical lesson that making the most of what we have turns it into more. — Melody Beattie

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Nikki Rowe

Someday we will forget the hardship, and the pain its cause us; we will realise, hurt is not the end. lessons appear to teach us strength, we learn happiness is an inside job and to cure our insanity we must not fear what is to come, but believe in what we've been taught. — Nikki Rowe

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Hafsat Abiola

In Nigeria, the hopes of millions have been pinned on me. Everything I do is under the spotlight. If they want to sell papers, they put me on the cover. If they want to gain popular support in an election, they ask for my endorsement. Where does someone like me go when we need a safe place to be and learn? To renew, deepen the foundation of our work, and sharpen our focus? To share experiences, lessons and build relationships with others that can advance our thinking, approach and capacity? We go to the YES! Jam, which gives us all that and so much more. — Hafsat Abiola

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Hilda Yacoubian

Its always hard to find out that a person you once considered a great friend has completely turned their back on you. Life is full of surprises, some good and some bad. From my experience, bumping into bad ones never gets easier, but you learn to expect it, learn from it, and move on. Thats the only thing we can do ... is move on. — Hilda Yacoubian

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Markus Almond

The most valuable lessons we will ever learn are the ones that happen after we fall flat on our faces without anyone around to catch us. — Markus Almond

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Ikechukwu Izuakor

One of the greatest lessons we can learn in life is how to keep mute when the boiling ring of anger is dropped within us — Ikechukwu Izuakor

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Aleksandra Layland

Into every life both tragedy and triumph can fall, and we must learn to meet both with equal serenity. — Aleksandra Layland

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Dalai Lama

The lessons we have begun to learn make me hopeful, that human beings will become friendlier, more harmonious, less harmful. Compassion and the seeds of peace will be able to flourish. At the same time, every individual is responsible to help guide our global family in the right direction. Good wishes alone are not enough; we have to take responsibility. Large human movements spring from individual human initiatives — Dalai Lama

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Laverne Cox

There are lessons in everything. The bad, the good. Our job is to listen, and to continue to learn, so that maybe we get better at this. Maybe get better at life. — Laverne Cox

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Mahatma Gandhi

Unless we learn the lesson of nonviolence fully, we shall never do away with the deadly feuds which have been the curse of the Frontier people. — Mahatma Gandhi

Lessons We Learn Quotes By John Burroughs

One of the hardest lessons we have to learn in this life, and one that many persons never learn, is to see the divine, the celestial, the pure, in the common, the near at hand-to see that heaven lies about us here in this world. — John Burroughs

Lessons We Learn Quotes By C. JoyBell C.

The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself. — C. JoyBell C.

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Barbara Rose

Even the most daring and accomplished people have undergone tremendous difficulty. In fact, the more successful they became, the more they attributed their success to the lessons learned during their most difficult times. Adversity is our teacher. When we view adversity as a guide towards greater inner growth, we will then learn to accept the wisdom our soul came into this life to learn. — Barbara Rose

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Maria Amparo Ruiz De Burton

Let us cry for the spilt milk, by all means, if by doing so we learn how to avoid spilling any more. Let us cry for the spilt milk, and remember how, and where, and why, we spilt it. Much wisdom is learnt through tears, but none by forgetting our lessons. — Maria Amparo Ruiz De Burton

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Dalai Lama XIV

In education, it is my experience that those lessons which we learn from teachers who are not just good, but who also show affection for the student, go deep into our minds. Lessons from other sorts of teachers may not. Although you may be compelled to study and may fear the teacher, the lessons may not sink in. Much depends on the affection from the teacher. — Dalai Lama XIV

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Cathy Lee Crosby

It seems that we learn lessons when we least expect them but always when we need them the most, and, the true gift in these lessons always lies in the learning process itself. — Cathy Lee Crosby

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Laura Lynne Jackson

What is your view of the world?"

My answer came easily.

"I see the earth as a classroom," I said. "We are all sent here to learn lessons and help each other. But the real world is the spirit world. And that world is a world of light and love. — Laura Lynne Jackson

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Gwen Bristow

We always hate the school room where we learn hard lessons. But then we love it, because that's the school that taught us all we know, and gave us all the strength we have. — Gwen Bristow

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Michio Kaku

He found that mice with a defect in their CREB activator gene were virtually incapable of forming long-term memories. They were amnesiac mice. But even these forgetful mice could learn a bit if they had short lessons with rest in between. Scientists theorize that we have a fixed amount of CREB activator in the brain that can limit the amount we can learn in any specific time. If we try to cram before a test, it means that we quickly exhaust the amount of CREB activators, and hence we cannot learn any more - at least until we take a break to replenish the CREB activators. — Michio Kaku

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Mariah Carey

We have to go through certain things in order to appreciate life and learn lessons. — Mariah Carey

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Joan D. Chittister

Life is a series of lessons, some of them obvious, some of them not. We learn as we go that dreams end, that plans get changed, that promises get broken, that our idols disappoint us. — Joan D. Chittister

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Teresa Of Avila

Let us look at our own shortcomings and leave other people's alone; for those who live carefully ordered lives are apt to be shocked at everything and we might well learn very important lessons from the persons who shock us. Our — Teresa Of Avila

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Susan Crandall

Child, the good Lord got plans for all of us that we don't know-and he always got His reasons. He want us to learn and rejoice in the good that come from His design.
God's plan ain't a free pass. Uh-uh. He give us moments to make choices, and we make them. We accountable for those choices. God's job ain't to make our lives easier, it's to make us better souls by the lessons he give us. I tell you now, I wouldn't change one choice I made since I met you. No matter what. — Susan Crandall

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Susan Hill

There are some temptations that cannot be resisted, some lessons we never learn. — Susan Hill

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Ken Loach

One lesson to learn is that the press and the broadcasters are not neutral. And it seems we have to learn it each time there is a dispute: they are actually committed to one side. — Ken Loach

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Dannika Dark

Life is here to teach us, so be a good student. Mistakes are the only way we learn. — Dannika Dark

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Richelle E. Goodrich

Far more important than the tribulations and heartaches, the thrills, merriment, and pleasures of life is what you learn from it all. It isn't the tunnel we pass through that matters, it's what emerges on the other side. — Richelle E. Goodrich

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Gary Snyder

The lessons we learn from the wild become the etiquette of freedom. — Gary Snyder

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Cassia Leo

It's not our mistakes that define us. It's the lessons we learn that show our true character. — Cassia Leo

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Nancy Kerrigan

I took group lessons at a rink near my home. We first had to learn how to stand up on the ice wearing skates. Eventually we learned to move forward, but soon found out that it was not that easy to stop! So that was our next important lesson. — Nancy Kerrigan

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Andrew Murray

In the life of the Christian, it is one of the deepest lessons that he has to learn, that the Word without the living God avails little; that the blessing of the Word comes when it brings us to the living God; that the Word that we get from the mouth of God brings the power to know it and to do it. Let us learn the lesson: personal fellowship with God in secret alone can make the word to be life and power. — Andrew Murray

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Albert Jay Nock

The most important extra-curricular lesson we learned, - and we learned it properly, - was summed up in Chief Justice Jay's dictum that "justice is always the same, whether it be due from one man to a million, or from a million to one man." We learned this, not by precept, but by example, which is the best way to learn such lessons. In — Albert Jay Nock

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Amaka Imani Nkosazana

You may be going through a storm right now, but understand that the sun will shine again. It is during the storm that you learn the lesson. You can either let it make you or break you. Take this time to reflect on your choices in life. Many times we create our own storms by the choices we make. Right now while you are in the midst, decide to not go backwards, move forward with more positivity. — Amaka Imani Nkosazana

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Erin Boyle

There were missteps. Things collected that we didn't really need. Money spent that might have been saved. Arguments that we'd one day learn to navigate. — Erin Boyle

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Aspen Matis

When we apply the lessons we've struggled for our whole lives to learn to the lives of people we love, our love becomes judgment - which is toxic. Our fear our daughters will fail leads us to fail them. — Aspen Matis

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Richelle E. Goodrich

One way or another, I think we are all destined to learn the same lessons in life. Universal truths are universal truths. They cannot be changed. — Richelle E. Goodrich

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Haruki Murakami

Most things are forgotten over time. Even the war itself, the life-and-death struggle people went through is now like something from the distant past. We're so caught up in our everyday lives that events of the past are no longer in orbit around our minds. There are just too many things we have to think about everyday, too many new things we have to learn. But still, no matter how much time passes, no matter what takes place in the interim, there are some things we can never assign to oblivion, memories we can never rub away. They remain with us forever, like a touchstone. — Haruki Murakami

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Auliq Ice

We need to learn ourselves before we can understand what really annoys us! — Auliq Ice

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Mark Sheppard

The lessons we learn, we must learn again and again. — Mark Sheppard

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Holley Gerth

Sometimes what we see as wasted time is actually the training ground for what God has in store for us. The lessons we learn and the obstacles we overcome are preparation. Even the rocks you're struggling to climb over today may be the stepping-stones of tomorrow. God never wastes anything. There is great value in where he has led you. And even if you have strayed from his path at times, he's a Redeemer who can transform those mistakes into future benefits to you as well. — Holley Gerth

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Bekka Bramlett

Maybe tomorrow is counting on me
To learn my lessons today
I'll start by taking a step at a time
And stop throwing my blessings away
I'll get myself up and I'll brush myself off
And take back some of the pride that I've lost
'Cause you can't always keep your feet on the ground
I guess we all learn the hard way and we all fall down — Bekka Bramlett

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Matthew Underwood

Some lessons take years to learn, with repeated exposure to the same path sometimes shadowed by the inner conscience of own souls. But eventually we learn, and our journey continues in another direction. — Matthew Underwood

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Alexis Hurley

Perspective: it is the creativity we possess, the beliefs we follow and the lessons we learn. — Alexis Hurley

Lessons We Learn Quotes By John Fowles

We lack trust in the present, this moment, this actual seeing, because our culture tells us to trust only the reported back, the publicly framed, the edited, the thing set in the clearly artistic or the clearly scientific angle of perspective. One of the deepest lessons we have to learn is that nature, of its nature, resists this. It waits to be seen otherwise, in its individual presentness and from our individual presentness. — John Fowles

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Euginia Herlihy

There is a time when we make a lot of mistakes in life , we should not condemn ourselves because we also learn more lessons during those times. — Euginia Herlihy

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Stones are mute teachers; they silence the observer, and the most valuable lesson we learn from them we cannot communicate. — Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Dale Turner

Some of the best lessons we ever learn are learned from past mistakes. The error of the past is the wisdom and success of the future. — Dale Turner

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Willem Dafoe

I do know that I like to play characters that are sometimes a little on the outside - that's because it feels kind of romantic and sexier to me. I really think they are the people that we learn lessons from. — Willem Dafoe

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Madeleine K. Albright

I have spent a lifetime looking for remedies to all manner of life's problems
personal, social, political, global. I am deeply suspicious of those who offer simple solutions and statements of absolute certainty or who claim full possession of the truth. Yet I have grown equally skeptical of those who suggest that all is too nuanced and complex for us to learn any lessons, that there are so many sides to every thing that we can pursue knowledge every day of our lives and still know nothing for sure. I believe we can recognize truth when we see it, just not a first and not without ever relenting in our efforts to learn more. This is because the goal we seek, and the good we hope for, comes not as some final reward but as the hidden companion to our quest. It is not what we find, but the reason we cannot stop looking and striving, that tells us why we are here. — Madeleine K. Albright

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Iyanla Vanzant

What looks like a failure teaches us what not to do, what does not work. We have lessons to learn from our experiences. — Iyanla Vanzant

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Pauline Neville-Jones

We owe it to the victims of the suicide bombers who struck London on 7 July 2005 to find out how the attacks happened and to learn the lessons that will spare lives in the future. — Pauline Neville-Jones

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Scot McKnight

From nature one can learn the lessons of divine providence, and some of us need to be reminded of this because we can look and not see a world alive with God's presence. — Scot McKnight

Lessons We Learn Quotes By R.C. Sproul

When God issues a call to us, it is always a holy call. The vocation of dying is a sacred vocation. To understand that is one of the most important lessons a Christian can ever learn. When the summons comes, we can respond in many ways. We can become angry, bitter or terrified. But if we see it as a call from God and not a threat from Satan, we are far more prepared to cope with its difficulties. — R.C. Sproul

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Srinivas Shenoy

We learn something when someone passes through our lives. Some lessons are painful. Some lessons are painless & some lessons are priceless. — Srinivas Shenoy

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Kay Hooper

What about free will? . . . There's that too. I never understood why people think they're mutually exclusive. Ask me, our entire lives aren't planned out for us- just some things. Specific events along the way, crossroads we're meant to come to. Tests, maybe, to measure our progress. But we always have choices, and those choices can send us along an unplanned path . . . there are some things that are meant to happen at a certain moment and in a certain way. No matter which path you choose, which decisions you make along your own particular journey, those pivotal moments appear to be set in stone. Maybe they represent the specific lessons we're meant to learn . . . Things we have to face. Things we have to learn. Responsibilities we have to fulfill. And mistakes we have to correct. — Kay Hooper

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Justin Timberlake

The teachers that we actually learn more from are the ones that taught us life lessons more than trigonometry. And they have such a huge responsibility and they're under-appreciated and underpaid. So that's my opinion of teachers. — Justin Timberlake

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Richard Dawkins

Nature is not cruel, only pitilessly indifferent. This is one of the hardest lessons for humans to learn. We cannot admit that things might be neither good nor evil, neither cruel nor kind, but simply callous-indifferent to all suffering, lacking all purpose. — Richard Dawkins

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Iain Pears

In my small way, I preserved and catalogued, and dipped into the vast ocean of learning that awaited, knowing all the time that the life of one man was insufficient for even the smallest part of the wonders that lay within. It is cruel that we are granted the desire to know, but denied the time to do so properly. We all die frustrated; it is the greatest lesson we have to learn. — Iain Pears

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Hillary Rodham Clinton

As much as I might have wanted to, I could never change my vote on Iraq. But I could try to help us learn the right lessons from that war and apply them to Afghanistan and other challenges where we had fundamental security interests. I was determined to do exactly that when facing future hard choices, with more experience, wisdom, skepticism, and humility. — Hillary Rodham Clinton

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Dan Brown

So as this child's father, you would give him some basic, good advice and then let him go off and make his own mistakes?"
"I wouldn't run behind him and mollycoddle him if that's what you mean."
"But what if he fell and skinned his knee?"
"He would learn to be more careful."
"So although you have the power to interfere and prevent your child's pain, you would choose to show your love by letting him learn his own lessons?"
"Of course. Pain is part of growing up. It's how we learn."
The camerlengo nodded. "Exactly. — Dan Brown

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Megan Fox

I believe that every interaction is an act of fate in some way, that we're meant to interact with them, and it's our job to flesh that out and experience it to the fullest and learn the lessons we're meant to. — Megan Fox

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Abhijit Naskar

We humans can never learn everything. The purpose of human life is not to learn everything. Rather it is to learn from every single walk of life and put that knowledge into practice in the pursuit of making human life a little better. — Abhijit Naskar

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Knowingly or unknowingly, our past disappointments guide us positively and or negatively in our present day journey of life, based on how we see and use the lessons from our past! — Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Anne Lamott

One of the hardest lessons I had to learn was that I was going to need a lot of help, and for a long time. (Even this morning.) What saved me was that I found gentle, loyal and hilarious companions, which is at the heart of meaning: maybe we don't find a lot of answers to life's tougher questions, but if we find a few true friends, that's even better. — Anne Lamott

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Jacqueline Simon Gunn

Life is messy. No matter how hard we try to create order, something happens to cause the structure we created to falter. Maybe that's the only way for us to learn. If everything stayed neat and orderly, then we would never be forced to grow and change. We need something unexpected to help us make sense of where we are and to guide us to where we need to go. — Jacqueline Simon Gunn

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Kilroy J. Oldster

Everything that occurs to us in life is a resource, an experience that we can learn from and grow from. — Kilroy J. Oldster

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Steve Maraboli

Wisdom stems from personal accountability. We all make mistakes; own them ... learn from them. Don't throw away the lesson by blaming others. — Steve Maraboli

Lessons We Learn Quotes By J.C. Reed

It also reminds me that true power comes not from submission or gain, but from controlling my inner demons. Because our true enemies live within ourselves and feed from the lessons we failed to learn from our pasts. — J.C. Reed

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Drexel Deal

Looking back, I have come to realize that the gang lifestyle back then - the fame, the respect, and the recognition - was stronger and powerful than any drug. We were serious with what we were dealing with. It was like a do or die situation. Shelton 'Apples' Burrows reform gang leader — Drexel Deal

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Ann Richards

One of the most valuable lessons I learned ... is that we all have to learn from our mistakes, and we learn from those mistakes a lot more than we learn from the things we succeeded in doing. — Ann Richards

Lessons We Learn Quotes By L.M. Montgomery

That's one of the things we learn as we grow older
how to forgive. It comes easier at forty than it did at twenty. — L.M. Montgomery

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Sherrie Eldridge

Because adoption is a lifelong journey, we have a future filled with the potential to learn invaluable lessons. But many of us haven't been taught that we have a choice in every situation in life. — Sherrie Eldridge

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Shannon L. Alder

Maybe, the lesson we can all learn from the inner sadness of a Narcissist is to see through our own fabrications, our own illusions so that we can be set free to be real once more. — Shannon L. Alder

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Martin R. Lemieux

Patience is a virtue, just like parenting. We aren't born as parents, we learn how to be patent through our kids. From those lessons comes the wisdom to be patient! — Martin R. Lemieux

Lessons We Learn Quotes By DeBorrah K. Ogans

We are forever becoming! We never arrive, as long as we are on this side of Heaven there is more to learn. — DeBorrah K. Ogans

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Sean Combs

Everyone has challenges and lessons to learn - we wouldn't be who we are without them. — Sean Combs

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Katrina Kenison

Perhaps it's human nature: We want to shield our children from pain, and what we get instead is life and heartache and lessons that bring us to our knees. Sooner or later we are handed the brute, necessary curriculum of surrender, we have no choice, then but to bow our heads and learn. We struggle to accept that our children's destinies are not ours to write, their battles not ours to fight, their bruises not ours to bear, nor their victories ours to take credit for. We learn humility and how to ask for help. We learn to let go even when every fiber of our being yearns to hold on even tighter. — Katrina Kenison

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Summer Sanders

My parents wanted us to be pool-safe, so I had lessons when I was 18 months old. I would like to share with all the parents out there that I was that kid who cried during every one of my lessons. But it wasn't an option for my parents; we had a backyard pool, so I needed to learn how to swim. — Summer Sanders

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Elijah Wood

Our bad memories and our bad experiences are what make us who we are and what make us grow and allow us to learn, if we choose to see the lessons in those experiences. — Elijah Wood

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Kate McGahan

Sometimes in life our master will teach us and then test us like this. He will send the same painful circumstances to us over and over again until we no longer want what isn't good for us; until he is sure that we have learned what we need to know so that he can move us on to new kinds of lessons and experience. — Kate McGahan

Lessons We Learn Quotes By John Updike

And there was, in those Ipswich years, for me at least, a raw educational component; though I used to score well in academic tests, I seemed to know very little of how the world worked and was truly grateful for instruction, whether it was how to stroke a backhand, mix a martini, use a wallpaper steamer, or do the Twist. My wife, too, seemed willing to learn. Old as we must have looked to our children, we were still taking lessons, in how to be grown-up. — John Updike

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Sharon Lathan

Wisdom bought with a tremendous price, Jane. You know what William and I suffered. I suppose the benefit to our tumultuous courtship was the trial-by-fire aspect of it all.We learned our lessons via grievous methods, but we did learn them. — Sharon Lathan

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Erica Jong

Flesh is merely a lesson. We learn it & pass on. — Erica Jong

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Robin Hobb

Time is an unkind teacher, delivering lessons that we learn far too late for them to be useful. — Robin Hobb

Lessons We Learn Quotes By A.J. Compton

Learning takes a lifetime and even the geniuses among us die ignorant. You should always want to learn, to grow, to improve. Otherwise what's the point? You may as well just give up and die. There's always new things to see, people to meet, lessons to learn. Life is both a classroom and a teacher. We'll always be the students, never the professors. — A.J. Compton

Lessons We Learn Quotes By C.S. Lewis

God allows us to experience the low points of life in order to teach us lessons that we could learn in no other way. — C.S. Lewis

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Anthony Ryan

It is the lessons we learn that change us from boys to men. — Anthony Ryan

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Clayton Christensen

The first two lessons, which we learned early in our efforts to be good member missionaries, have made sharing the Gospel much easier: We simply can't predict who will or won't be interested in the Gospel, and building a friendship is not a prerequisite to inviting people to learn about the Gospel. — Clayton Christensen

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Martina Navratilova

The goal for the Laureus Sport For Good Foundation is to give kids an opportunity to be involved in sports and hopefully learn some lessons along the way. We want to put them in a safe environment, help them if they need it and maybe they will get a scholarship to a school because of the skills that they learn. Sport is just a starting point. — Martina Navratilova

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Thomas S. Monson

This is our one and only chance at mortal life-here and now. The longer we live, the greater is our realization that it is brief. Opportunities come, and then they are gone. I believe that among the greatest lessons we are to learn in this short sojourn upon the earth are lessons that help us distinguish between what is important and what is not. I plead with you not to let those most important things pass you by. As you plan for that illusive, nonexistent future when you will have time to do all that you want to do. Instead, find you in the journey now. — Thomas S. Monson

Lessons We Learn Quotes By Megan Karasch

In advising the heads of state to learn from tragedy rather than perpetuate its existence Robert Kennedy excalimed, "Tragedy is a tool for the living to gain wisdom, not a guide by which to live." We have a tendency to dwell on tragedy and use it as a justification for tragic occurrences that follow,rather than parse the tragedy, taking from it important lessons and using those lessons to avoid similar tragedies. — Megan Karasch

Lessons We Learn Quotes By N. T. Wright

The question for us, as we learn again and again the lessons of hope for ourselves, is how we can be for the world what Jesus was for Thomas: how we can show to the world the signs of love, how we can reach out our hands in love, wounded though they will be if the love has been true, how we can invite those whose hearts have grown shrunken and shriveled with sorrow and disbelief to come and see what love has done, what love is doing, in our communities, our neighborhoods: — N. T. Wright
