on learning …

for the first day of school (here, finally!)

For every man, education should be a process which continues all his life. We have to abandon, as swiftly as possible, the idea that schooling is something restricted to youth. How can it be, in a world where half the things a man (woman) knows at 20 are no longer true at 40–and half the things he (she) knows at 40 hadn’t been discovered when he was 20?
Arthur C. Clarke (The View from Serendipity)

The best of all things is to learn. Money can be lost or stolen, health and strength may fail, but what you have committed to your mind is yours forever.
Louis L’Amour

  1. oh, nice banner! but i think that’s absolutely true. my question is…have you always been super organized or was it something you had to learn over time?

  2. I love that quote by Louis L’Amour. I am using it on a layout today about my oldest daughter heading for college and my youngest child going to kindergarten. Thanks for your blog, Stacy. You inspire me all the time !

  4. I, too want to thank you for the Louis L’Amour quote. I’m not sure how I will use it except maybe just to remind myself that I need to keep moving forward and learning as much as I can from this life. Thank you!

  5. it’s yours forever unless you have Alzheimer’s like my mother did. That still doesn’t deminish the importance of being a life long learner.

  6. My mom wrote a little poem book that we sold in our scrapbook store way back in 1999. To this day it’s my favorite little quip for a back to school scrapbook page:
    First day of school,
    Your mama cried.
    A little sadness,
    A lot of Pride. :)
    -Ashley

  7. Wonderful quotes!

  8. I love the quotes. They are so inspiring, and always make me stop and take note of what’s important. I have said this one many times, but have said it a little differently – they can take away your house, your car, your bank account; but, they can never take away what you’ve learned. And it is so true!!! Thanks for the reminders, it’s greatly appreciated.

  9. I love to learn and these quotes were wonderful! I especially love the one by Louis L’Amour. :)
