We also learn that this country and the Western world have no monopoly of goodness and truth and scholarship, we begin to appreciate the ingredients that are indispensable to making a better world. In a life of learning that is, perhaps, the greatest lesson of all.
John Hope Franklin
I'm learning kite surfing. It's a little surfboard you have on your feet with straps, and you have a big kite like a power glider in the air that pulls you. You don't need waves to move, and it makes a big spray of water as you go.
Particularly for English people, Shakespeare is always at the forefront of both drama and the English language. He's always been there. I can't remember starting school and not learning about him.
Jamie Campbell Bower

I think that the main thing that you can learn from watching 'The Spectacular Now' is just learning about growing up and moving on.
High school and college were my punk, formative years. I was playing hardcore, learning to be a musician. In bands, you tour, but you're paid nothing; you're playing to 50 people in a basement, sleeping in a van, and you love it.
Perhaps the prevalence of pedantry may be largely accounted for by the common error of thinking that, because useful knowledge should be remembered, any kind of knowledge that is at all worth learning should be remembered too.
Albert J. Nock

I spend so much time with the brightest and most talented and well-rounded people.

I've been doing a lot of learning from mistakes, first and foremost, and building off that.
I think there's so much negative influence on children in school settings. It becomes learning by rote to pass a test. It's not contextualized.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
