Reflections on Learning

That is what learning is. You suddenly understand something you’ve understood all your life, but in a new way. —  Doris Lessing

It has always seemed strange to me that in our endless discussions about education so little stress is laid on the pleasure of becoming an educated person, the enormous interest it adds to life. To be able to be caught up into the world of thought—that is to be educated. ― Edith Hamilton

“The greatest gift is the passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites,it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination.” ― Elizabeth Hardwick

I most carefully confined myself to facts and arranged those facts on as thin a line of connecting opinion as possible. — Mary Kingsley
