Pearls of Wisdom


Live as if you were to die tomorrow; learn as if you were to live forever.

Mahatma Gandhi

For knowledge add a little every day, for wisdom erase a little every day.

Lao Tzu

One pound of learning requires ten pounds of common sense to apply it.

Persian proverb

I learn as much from a turtle as from a religious text.

Dalai Lama

I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.


Acquire knowledge, it enables its professor to distinguish right from wrong; it lights the way to heaven. It is our friend in the desert, our company in solitude and companion when friendless. It guides us to happiness, it sustains us in misery, it is an ornament amongst friends and an armour against enemies.



No one can "get" an education, for of necessity education is a continuing process.

Louis L'Amour

Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.

David Starr Jordan

Man never rises to great truths without enthusiasm.


The most fatal illusion is the settled point of view. Life is growth and motion; a fixed point kills anybody who has one.

Brooks Atkinson

Any piece of knowledge I acquire today has a value at this moment exactly proportional to my skill to deal with it. Tomorrow, when I know more, I recall that piece of knowledge and use it better.

Mark Van Doren

Experience is not what happens to you; it is what you do with what happens to you.

Aldous Huxsley

A life without change is not a life; it is a stagnant pool. To change your mind frivolously is a cop-out. To change your mind under the direction of the wisdom of the heart is a brush stroke on the masterpiece you are delivering to the world.

Alan Cohen, "Dare to Be Yourself"

The search for wisdom is a great challenge; to act on wisdom is an even greater challenge.


Intelligence is like a four-wheel drive. It allows you to get stuck in more remote places.

Garrison Keillor

What Does Creativity Bring To Your Life?

The Biggest Success Secret

Life is about continuous learning, discovering new things, and growing. Successful people don't think they know everything. They are open to new ideas. They are always willing to find another way, find a better solution. That's why they're successful.  Don't think you know everything and be open to learning and trying new things if you wish to achieve more, create new things, grow, be successful and live the life you want.


Learning by Doing

Feedback Is Your Elevator To Success

If you succeed,  it's a learning opportunity. If you fail, it's a learning opportunity. Vadim Kotelniko quotes

Lifelong Learning (LLL)

Lifelong learning is  learning in which you engage throughout your life. It includes both formal and informal education. As new know knowledge is created and disseminated increasingly faster, terminology and definitions of lifelong learning (LLL) have developed in line with the shift of emphasis away from the system (in lifelong education) to the learner (in lifelong learning).

Interactive Learning

The mutual exchange of tacit and explicit knowledge describes the knowledge creation process. During the socialization mode of learning10, tacit knowledge is transferred through interactions between individuals, which may also be accomplished in the absence of language. You may learn and gain a sense of competence by observing behavior modeled by others. For example, coaching, mentoring and apprenticeships instruct tacitly through observation, imitation, and practice... More

Learning and Forgetting

The most important main idea in learning and forgetting is to understand that both processes are activity dependent. The less knowledge is used, the greater the forgetting. Similarly, the more something is repeated, the better the remembering. Just-in-case learning (where you learn everything just-in-case you need it in the future) is predicated on ignoring the forgetting process.11
