A Little Learning

It is that Back to School time in a lot of countries...I have two more weeks to go, but the shops are full of school supplies. So for this week let's consider school, learning and education.

Knowledge is learning something every day. Wisdom is letting go of something every day. Zen Proverb

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. W.B. Yeats

Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils. Louis-Hector Berlioz

The important thing is never to stop questioning. Albert Einstein

A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops. Henry Adams

Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday. John Wayne

An intellectual is someone who has found something more interesting than sex. Edgar Wallace

When a teacher calls a boy by his entire name it means trouble. Mark Twain

Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself. Chinese Proverb

To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society. Theodore Roosevelt

I have been described as a lighthouse in the middle of a bog: Brilliant but useless. Connor Cruise O'Brien.

I am always ready to learn, but I do not always like being taught. Winston Churchill

You have one mouth and two ears. You should listen twice as much as you speak. Unknown

This week's freebie is of course another alpha! Great for those Back to School LO Titles. If you are a paper scrapper, why not create your title with the words and print out onto card and then use on your LO?

As usual this is free for a week and then will disappear into the digi dollar spot in store along with a blue version, so two for the price of one!

Get your copy here. Sorry link expired. See the ScrapStreet Store for more alphas.
