Quote of the Day

In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson.
The most important lesson that I have learned is to trust God in every circumstance. Lots of times we go through different trials and following God's plan seems like it doesn't make any sense at all. God is always in control and he will never leave us.
A good teacher, like a good entertainer first must hold his audience's attention, then he can teach his lesson.
John Henrik Clarke
Patience is a virtue, and I'm learning patience. It's a tough lesson.

The sad and horrible conclusion is that no one cared that Jews were being murdered... This is the Jewish lesson of the Holocaust and this is the lesson which Auschwitz taught us.
The lesson is that you can still make mistakes and be forgiven.
Robert Downey, Jr.
A friend of mine said something powerful at his grandfather's funeral. He said that the greatest lesson from his grandfather's life was that he died empty, because he accomplished everything he wanted, with no regrets. I think that, along with leaving a legacy, would be the greatest sign of success.
The ultimate lesson all of us have to learn is unconditional love, which includes not only others but ourselves as well.
There's no problem on the planet that can't be solved without violence. That's the lesson of the civil rights movement.
You can never regret anything you do in life. You kind of have to learn the lesson from whatever the experience is and take it with you on your journey forward.
Never give up, which is the lesson I learned from boxing. As soon as you learn to never give up, you have to learn the power and wisdom of unconditional surrender, and that one doesn't cancel out the other; they just exist as contradictions. The wisdom of it comes as you get older.
We are supposed to enjoy the good stuff now, while we can, with the people we love. Life has a funny way of teaching us that lesson over and over again.
I'm very happy with my life. I am what I am. I don't worry about anything that I can't control. That's a really good lesson in life.
Relationships are eternal. The 'separation' is another chapter in the relationship. Often, letting go of the old form of the relationship becomes a lesson in pure love much deeper than any would have learned had the couple stayed together.

Henry L. Stimson
Life is a long lesson in humility.
James M. Barrie

The lesson of the Cuban Missile Crisis is plain: Strength prevents war; weakness invites it. We need a commander-in-chief who understands that - and who won't leave us facing a foe who thinks he doesn't.
Arthur L. Herman

I play bass. I play a bit of guitar. I've never been to a lesson, so my theory of music is non-existent in any instrument, but we always had guitars around. My dad taught me to play drums for 'Love Actually,' and I still play drums now. But I'm not a 'drummer.' I'm not a 'guitarist.' I'm trying to be a bassist.
The best math lesson we can teach college students this year is to subtract a tuition increase and benefit from the dividends of higher education.
When I am wrong, I will learn the lesson and move on to face other challenges. For me, that's what creating your own life is. Doing your best work while being your best self.
John F. Kennedy
