Seven of the best book quotes about learning
  1. #1
    “We are born makers. We move what we’re learning from our heads to our hearts through our hands.”
  2. #2
    “Water is taught by thirst;
    Land, by the oceans passed;
    Transport, by throe;
    Peace, by its battles told;
    Love, by memorial mould;
    Birds, by the snow.”
  3. #3
    “I’ve come to believe that creativity is the mechanism that allows learning to seep into our being and become practice. The Asaro tribe of Indonesia and Papua New Guinea has a beautiful saying: ‘Knowledge is only a rumor until it lives in the muscle.‘”
  4. #4
    “The happiest man is he who learns from nature the lesson of worship”
  5. #5
    “I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.”
  6. #6
    “In my work, I’ve found that moving out of powerlessness, and even despair, requires hope. Hope is not an emotion: It’s a cognitive process--a thought process made up of what researcher C. R. Snyder called the trilogy of “goals, pathways, and agency.” Hope happens when we can set goals, have the tenacity and perseverance to pursue those goals, and believe in our own abilities to act. Snyder also found that hope is learned. When boundaries, consistency, and support are all in place, children learn it from their parents, But even if we didn’t get it as kids, we can still learn hope as adults. It’s just tougher when we’re older because we have to resist and unlearn old habits, like the tendency to give up when things get tough.”
  7. #7
    “Don’t cry so bitterly, but remember this day, and resolve with all your soul that you will never know another like it.”
