It’s the last few days of January. Has your new year optimism faded?
Admit it, it probably has and it’s completely understandable. The days are still annoyingly short, the weather is miserable and the whole month basically feels like one big giant Monday (and we all know how much we hate Mondays). Yes, January is hard, and by the end, most people have probably already given up all those lofty ambitious New Year resolutions; all those wonderful goals to study harder and consistently go out of the window. If that’s the case and you find yourself in desperate need of some motivation, take at look at these inspiring quotes that will have you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated to tackle the months ahead.
10. The goal of education is the advancement of knowledge and the dissemination of truth. (John F. Kennedy)
9. You are always a student, never a master. You have to keep moving forward. (Conrad Hall)
8. Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow. (Anthony J. D’Angelo)
7. Education is learning what you didn’t even know you didn’t know. (Daniel J. Boorstin)
6. The difference between school and life? In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson. (Tom Bodett)
5. If someone is going down the wrong road, he doesn’t need motivation to speed him up. What he needs is education to turn him around. (Jim Rohn)
4. Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. (David M. Burns)
3. You will either step forward into growth, or you will step backward into safety. (Abraham Maslow)
2. It is in fact a part of the function of education to help us escape, not from our own time — for we are bound by that — but from the intellectual and emotional limitations of our time. (T.S. Eliot)
1. The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you. (B.B. King)
Happy inspiring learning!
