This is an age of intellectual sauces, of essence, of distillation. We have conclusions without deductions, abridgments of history and abridgments of science without leading facts. We have animals for literature, Cabinet Encyclopaedias, Family Libraries, Diffusion Societies, and heaven knows what else! What is all this for? Not to add knowledge to the learned, but to tell points to the ignorant, without giving them the trouble to acquire the links. Oh! it is sad work. And the result will be injurious to all classes.
Best Quotes about Learning
Old foxes want no tutors.
The great awareness comes slowly, piece by piece. The path of spiritual growth is a path of lifelong learning. The experience of spiritual power is basically a joyful one.
Peck, M. Scott

We all learn best in our own ways. Some people do better studying one subject at a time, while some do better studying three things at once. Some people do best studying in structured, linear way, while others do best jumping around, surrounding a subject rather than traversing it.

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.
Crosby, Cathy Lee

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

It is best to learn as we go, not go as we have learned.
Sahler, Leslie Jeanne
Wear your learning like a watch and do not pull it out merely to show you have it. If you are asked for the time, tell it; but do not proclaim it hourly unasked.
People are constantly clamoring for the joy of life. As for me, I find the joy of life in the hard and cruel battle of life -- to learn something is a joy to me.
Strindberg, J. August

Lavater, Johann Kaspar

In every man there is something wherein I may learn of him, and in that I am his pupil.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
All learning has an emotional base.
Whoso neglects learning in his youth, Loses the past and is dead for the future.
That is never too often repeated, which is never sufficiently learned.
Learning is pleasurable but doing is the height of enjoyment.
True, a little learning is a dangerous thing, but it still beats total ignorance.
Van Buren, Abigail
You can't learn less.
Learning makes a man fit company for himself as well as for others.
Whenever you are asked if you can do a job, tell'em,'Certainly I can!'Then get busy and find out how to do it.
For a man to attain to an eminent degree in learning costs him time, watching, hunger, nakedness, dizziness in the head, weakness in the stomach, and other inconveniences.
Cervantes, Miguel De
Research shows that you begin learning in the womb and go right on learning until the moment you pass on. Your brain has a capacity for learning that is virtually limitless, which makes every human a potential genius.
Gelb, Michael J.

Whatsoever one would understand what he hears must hasten to put into practice what he has heard.
