STOP AND THINK – Experience is a brutal teacher, but you learn. My God, do you learn. (C. S. Lewis, British novelist and Christian apologist)
Life is all about learning. It’s been said that when you stop learning, you’re dead. That may not be literally true, but it does suggest the emptiness of life when there is nothing more to gain or to stimulate thought and action. Life’s lessons, as Lewis says, may be very hard, but perhaps it’s true that the harder the experience, the greater the learning. Learn well from life.
Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance. (Proverbs 1:5)
