"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."
The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.
- B.B. King
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
- Benjamin Franklin
You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.
- Clay P. Bedford
A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on a cold iron.
- Horace Mann
What can I say about learning, really?
I think I'd feel like my heart had stopped beating if I lost my urge to learn!
I enjoyed thinking of words that inspire me,
only I had great difficulty in choosing just five.
They have their own beautiful words to share.
When you wish someone joy, you wish them peace,
love, prosperity, happiness... all the good things.
Joy is not in things; it is in us
There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.
Joy delights in Joy
Joy in looking and comprehending is nature's most beautiful gift.
Seeking joy in the simple things is something major, I think.
I've trained myself well to do so;
I try not to let joy slip through my fingers.
The world is but a canvas to the imagination.
Henry David Thoreau
All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.
“The principle goal of education is to create men who are capable of doing new things, not simply of repeating what other generations have done - men who are creative, inventive and discoverers”
I love the last quote. If we could only succeed in this...
I have no words for 'creativity', really;
I just can't imagine life without it!
There's one thing I can tell you, though;
I wish I were more creative with words!

The Serenity Prayer
God, give us grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.
By: Reinhold Niebuhr
Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul. Peace is not merely the absence of war. It is also a state of mind. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people.
What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter - a soothing, calming influence on the mind, rather like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue.
I have always admired and envied serene people.
I seek serenity and calmness;
I make conscious efforts to bring peacefulness to my life.
I often fail,
but I don't give up.
