Learning quotes
Learning
Too much attention to health is a hindrance to learning, to invention, and to studies of any kind, for we are always feeling suspicious shootings and swimmings in our heads, and we are prone to blame studies from them.

- Plato
One who has imagination without learning has wings without feet.

- Joubert, Joseph
Never become so much of an expert that you stop gaining expertise. View life as a continuous learning experience.

- Waitley, Denis
The most heterogeneous ideas are yoked by violence together; nature and art are ransacked for illustrations, comparisons, and allusions; their learning instructs, and their subtlety surprises; but the reader commonly thinks his improvement dearly bought and, though he sometimes admires, is seldom pleased.

- Johnson, Samuel
You aren't learning anything when you're talking.

- Johnson, Lyndon B.
I can't make head or tail of Life. Love is a fine thing, Art is a fine thing, Nature is a fine thing; but the average human mind and spirit are confusing beyond measure. Sometimes I think that all our learning is the little learning of the maxim. To laugh at a Roman awe-stricken in a sacred grove is to laugh at something today.

- Stevens, Wallace
I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.

- Louisa May Alcott
I believe that the testing of the student's achievements in order to see if he meets some criterion held by the teacher, is directly contrary to the implications of therapy for significant learning.

- Carl Rogers
Our attitude towards ourselves should be to be satiable in learning and towards others to be tireless in teaching.

- Zedong, Mao
Perhaps a modern society can remain stable only by eliminating adolescence, by giving its young, from the age of ten, the skills, responsibilities, and rewards of grownups, and opportunities for action in all spheres of life. Adolescence should be a time of useful action, while book learning and scholarship should be a preoccupation of adults.

- Hoffer, Eric
A little learning is a dangerous thing; Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring: There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain. And drinking largely sobers us again.

- Alexander Pope
More can be learned from what works than from what fails.

- Dubos, Rene
When I learn something new-and it happens every day-I feel a little more at home in this universe, a little more comfortable in the nest.

- Moyers, Bill
Narcissist: psychoanalytic term for the person who loves himself more than his analyst; considered to be the manifestation of a dire mental disease whose successful treatment depends on the patient learning to love the analyst more and himself less.

- Szasz, Thomas
Who God does not teach, man cannot.

- Proverb, Gaelic
There is an art, or, rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.

- Douglas Adams
Who so neglects learning in his youth, loses the past and is dead for the future.

- Euripides
Teaching is more difficult than learning because what teaching calls for is this: to let learn. The real teacher, in fact, lets nothing else be learned than learning. His conduct, therefore, often produces the impression that we properly learn nothing from him, if by "learning" we now suddenly understand merely the procurement of useful information.

- Martin Heidegger
Charles V. said that a man who knew four languages was worth four men; and Alexander the Great so valued learning, that he used to say he was more indebted to Aristotle for giving him knowledge that, than his father Philip for giving him life.

- Macaulay, Thomas B.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.

- Robert Byrne
