STOP AND THINK – A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life. (Muhammad Ali, heavyweight boxing champion)
During childhood and adolescence, we learn a lot about life and we gain the essentials for living. As Ali suggests, however, learning must not stop at a certain age. As we learn, we gain a better perspective on life. People who are constantly learning, whatever their age, are the people who are continually growing, who become successful and fulfilled.
Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still; teach the righteous and they will add to their learning (Proverbs 9:9).
