    Learning Is Life

    Life is all about learning. If we're not learning, we're not living. As soon as one says I can't learn anymore, death slowly approaches.

    The day I feel like I have learned "enough" will be a sad day indeed. With a world so progressive and so full of things to explore and discover... how could anyone ever stop learning? Why would anyone want to?

    Why would anyone ever want to stop learning.

    There have been times when the only reason I can find for living has been to learn more. I hope I always have a thirst to learn and that I will always have the means to.

    If You Think About It

    people learn best through trial and error and reward an punishment. i think thats why when we're suffering someone out there is trying to teach us something... to get us to stop doing something. or to try and wake us up and really look at our lives.
