“Learning is the only thing…” -T.H. White

Tuesday, November16, 2010. Today I am grateful for education and learning, and the touch of humor that can take us further in our learning than we thought possible.

Reader’s Digest, September 2010, page 49 gives learning and humor a boost:

“Got that? I think everyone should go to college and get a degree, and then spend six months as a bartender and six months as a cabdriver. Then they would really be educated. – Al McGuire, basketball coach and commentator”

Further, from the same issue of Reader’s Digest, page 49:

“Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get when you don’t.- Pete Seeger”

“The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows. – Sydney J. Harris”

“Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance. – Will Durant”

“Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten. – B.F. Skinner.”

Thank you, Reader’s Digest!

Here’s to educators and learners and thinkers!

All three in one?
