Learning quotes

Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.

- Wilma Rudolph

It is against the grain of modern education to teach children to program. What fun is there in making plans, acquiring discipline in organizing thoughts, devoting attention to detail, and learning to be self-critical?

- Alan Perlis

Have you ever seen a pedant with a warm heart?

- Lavater, Johann Kaspar

My definition of success is total self acceptance. We can obtain all of the material possessions we desire quite easily, however, attempting to change our deepest thoughts and learning to love ourselves is a monumental challenge. We may achieve success in our business lives but it never quite means as much if we do not feel good inside. Once we feel good about ourselves inside we can genuinely lend ourselves to others.

- Franki

You aren't learning anything when you're talking.

- Johnson, Lyndon B.

An inflated consciousness is always egocentric and conscious of nothing but its own existence. It is incapable of learning from the past, incapable of understanding contemporary events, and incapable of drawing right conclusions about the future. It is hypnotized by itself and therefore cannot be argued with. It inevitably dooms itself to calamities that must strike it dead.

- Jung, Carl

When you stop learning, stop listening, stop looking and asking questions, always new questions, then it is time to die.

- Smith, Lillian

There are three ingredients in the good life: learning, earning, and yearning.

- Christopher Morley

Everybody who is incapable of learning has taken to teaching.

- Wilde, Oscar

True, a little learning is a dangerous thing, but it still beats total ignorance.

- Van Buren, Abigail

If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience!

- Shaw, George Bernard

We cannot seek or attain health, wealth, learning, justice or kindness in general. Action is always specific, concrete, individualized, unique.

- John Dewey

Strange as it seems, no amount of learning can cure stupidity, and higher education positively fortifies it.

- Stephen Vizinczey

Learning to read has been reduced to a process of mastering a series of narrow, specific, hierarchical skills. Where armed-forces recruits learn the components of a rifle or the intricacies of close order drill by the numbers, recruits to reading learn its mechanics sound by sound and word by word.

- Gross, Jacquelyn

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, learning from failure.

- Powell, Colin

You are led through your lifetime by the inner learning creature, the playful spiritual being that is your real self. Don't turn away from possible futures before you're certain you don't have anything to learn from them. You're always free to change your mind and choose a different future, or a different past.


Some on commission, some for the love of learning, some because they have nothing better to do or because they hope these walls of books will deaden the drumming of the demon in their ears.

- Macneice, Louis

Neither comprehension nor learning can take place in an atmosphere of anxiety.

- Smith, Frank

A little learning is a dangerous thing; Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring

- Alexander Pope

We owe much (notwithstanding their partial and Manichean idea of beauty) to the early ascetic painters. Their works are a possession for ever. No future school of religious art will be able to rise to eminence without learning from them their secret. They taught artists, and priests, and laymen, too, that beauty is only worthy of admiration when it is the outward sacrament of the beauty of the soul within; they helped to deliver men from that idolatry to merely animal strength and loveliness into which they were in danger of falling in ferocious ages, and among the relics of Roman luxury.

- Miscellanies. 1849.
