Never let schooling interfere with your education. (Grant Allen, novelist and essayist)

At first glance that might seem to be counterintuitive. After all, we go to school to get a good education. Maybe, we should think of it as “Don’t let schooling be your only way to learn.” Life itself is a great teacher, and we would do well to learn from our experiences as well as from teachers and the dozens of other sources available to us today:

Intelligent people are always ready to learn. Their ears are open for knowledge. (Proverbs 18:15)
