STOP AND THINK – Education, like happiness, is individual, and must come to us from life and from ourselves. (Will Durant, 20th century American historian and philosopher)

Durant also says, “Do not depend upon teachers to educate you … follow your own bent, pursue your curiosity bravely, express yourself, make your own harmony.” Perhaps the quote is out of context, for surely the author is not saying that we can learn all we need to know by ourselves. It is important, though, to understand that we are responsible for our own learning.

Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance. (Proverbs 1:5)
