Explore the value of Learning
You have two ears and two eyes and only one mouth. Because you will learn twice as much as what you will ever have to say.
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.
Dr. David M. Burns
Let go of your attachment to being right, and suddenly your mind is more open. You're able to benefit from the unique viewpoints of others, without being crippled by your own judgment.
Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it.
There is a tendency to mistake data for wisdom, just as there has always been a tendency to confuse logic with values, intelligence with insight. Unobstructed access to facts can produce unlimited good only if it is matched by the desire and ability to find out what they mean and where they lead. Facts are terrible things if left sprawling and unattended. They are too easily regarded as evaluated certainties rather than as the rawest of raw materials crying to be processed into the texture of logic.
Keep on beginning and failing. Each time you fail, start all over again, and you will grow stronger until you have accomplished a purpose ... not the one you began with perhaps, but one you'll be glad to remember.

Boarding the bus, I looked, seemingly in vain, for a...

I told her “no I am busy”. One day she told me if I wanted to come to her work I said to her “yeah sure”. The next day my mom woke me up...
The Greatest Teacher Of AllSubmitted by Anonymous
'I hope you like kindergarten.' 'Today's my first day.' The secretary gave a whistle. 'Good luck. You got a tough one down there.' The room was at the end of the hall. I was glad to see it was next to the emergency exit, just in case I had to make a run for it. There was half an hour before the bell. I...

She's my favorite teacher. She's taught me so many things throughout the years that I've had her. It would be really neat if she would be nominated as someone's hero, just like she is to me.
