You cannot learn unless you are willing to take the time and energy. Learning is not just one time, but over the course of a lifetime.
Some people claim they learn something new every day. While this may be true, what matters is its content value. Lifelong learning doesn't fill your mind with unneeded or useless facts but expands your consciousness to grapple successfully with new challenges.

Good ideas rarely go out and find someone. If you want to find a good idea, you must search for it.
John C. Maxwell, Thinking For A Change
Genius is an ability to see through to the essential. A genius has a special way of seeing things - all at once, all together, and all the way to the core. A genius is able to create the essence from split and isolated parts of the whole.

The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher strates. The great teacher inspires.
William Arthur Ward
Education is the great engine of personal development. It is
through education that the daughter of a peasant can become
a doctor, that a son of a mineworker can become the head
of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president.
No man who worships education has got the best out of education....
Without a gentle contempt for education no man's education is complete.
The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think,
than what to think - rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to
think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other men.
It is a thousand times better to have common sense without
education than to have education without common sense.
Ignorance never settle a question.
Children are educated by what the grown-up is and not by his talk.
Nations have recently been led to borrow billions for war; no
nation has ever borrowed largely for education. Probably, no
nation is rich enough to pay for both war and civilization.
We must make our choice; we cannot have both.
Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail.
What you gain at one end you lose at the other. It's like feeding a
dog on his own tail. It won't fatten the dog.
An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all.
