Cheers to Learning

I've been thinking about learning a lot lately, seeing as I am supposed to help people do this thing called learning. So I was looking into good quotes about learning and found some great ones. I though I'd share:

•Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere. ~Chinese Proverb

•Give me a fruitful error any time, full of seeds, bursting with its own corrections. You can keep your sterile truth for yourself. ~Vilfredo Pareto

What I see, I remember.

What I do, I understand.

- Kung Fu Tzu (Confucius)
