Fifteen Credits


Fifteen Credits

If you’re in school, are you enjoying your classes? If you’re out of school, what do you miss about it — or are you glad those days are over?

I have been “learning” ever since I remember sitting on my mother’s lap and asking questions about the book she was reading. I suspect we would have read a lot more books, if I had asked fewer questions.

So instead of sharing a major (or minor) life story here for this prompt, I thought that I would share some quotes:

“Learning never exhausts the mind.”  Leonardo da Vinci

“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.”  Albert Einstein

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”   Mahatma Gandhi

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”  Nelson Mandela

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”  Maya Angelou

“Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.”  George Washington Carver

“If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?”  Albert Einstein

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” Benjamin Franklin

“I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.”  George Bernard Shaw

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”Aristotle

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Fifteen Credits.”

      1. No kidding. And here we go again… One thing I enjoyed about teaching critical thinking was the moment when I taught my students that “I don’t know. I will try to find out,” was a correct answer on exams in my class if the statement were true. Most of my students didn’t believe me (teachers lie, right? They’re secret saboteurs).
