Education, Learning, Schools
Today’s topic covers you from birth to death. There is never a time during that timeline in which you are not learning. Education can be formal or informal.
“Try to learn something about everything and everything about something”
From my very childhood, I followed this line. I prided myself on knowing a little about most things. Since my major field of interest is/was medicine, I learned whatever I could about it. It gives me a sense of satisfaction that I can contribute to a discussion on many topics. One thing that I am loath to talk about is politics and politicians!
What a beautiful way to describe the learning process. The children learn about everything in schools, but the real understanding of the concepts comes with experience. Especially if we talk about understanding life itself. It’s only by living that we understand the true meaning of life, as we mature.
“We learned about honesty and integrity – that the truth matters… that you don’t take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules… and success doesn’t count unless you earn it fair and square”
Michelle Obama is a person that I greatly admire. And when she talks about honesty and integrity, you know that she is talking straight from her heart. One of the most important lessons that we can and should learn is about being honest. About putting in the hard work before expecting success. These are golden words, and everyone should reflect on them.
“In times of change learners inherit the earth; while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists”
This emphasizes the importance of learning all through our lives. We cannot just consider ourselves learned, and rest on our laurels because the world around us is ever-changing. We need to learn new things, and technology all through our lives. Otherwise, the chances are that we will feel unable to cope and would become dependent upon others to guide us through difficult phases of life.
Living but not acquiring knowledge
Makes us oblivious to the world around us
It’s like stumbling in the dark, banging our heads in the wall
When we can just remove the blindfold of ignorance
And embrace knowledge like a well-loved friend
