„Weaseling out of things is important to learn. It's what separates us from the animals… except the weasel.“

„… it's not just learning that's important. It's learning what to do with what you learn and learning why you learn things that matters.“

—  Norton Juster American children's writer, academic, and architect 1929

Variante: …it’s not just learning that’s important. It’s learning what to do with what you learn and learning why you learn things that matters.

„It is mankind's discovery of language which more than any other single thing has separated him from the animal creation.“

—  Robertson Davies Canadian journalist, playwright, professor, critic, and novelist 1913 - 1995

On Seeing Plays (1990).
Contexto: It is mankind's discovery of language which more than any other single thing has separated him from the animal creation. Without language, what concept have we of past or future as separated from the immediate present? Without language, how can we tell anyone what we feel, or what we think? It might be said that until he developed language, man had no soul, for without language how could he reach deep inside himself and discover the truths that are hidden there, or find out what emotions he shared, or did not share, with his fellow men and women. But because this greatest gift of all gifts is in daily use, and is smeared, and battered and trivialized by commonplace associations, we too often forget the splendour of which it is capable, and the pleasures that it can give, from the pen of a master.

„Out among the big things —
The mountains and the plains —
An hour ain’t important,
Nor are the hour’s gains;
The feller in the city
Is hurried night and day,
But out among the big things
He learns the calmer way.“

—  Arthur Chapman (poet) American poet and newspaper columnist 1873 - 1935

„It's the inspired student that continues to learn on their own. That's what separates the real achievers in the world from those who pedal along, finishing assignments.“

—  Neil deGrasse Tyson American astrophysicist and science communicator 1958

Global Ideas from Pluto's Challenger (May 21, 2009)
Contexto: The best educators are the ones that inspire their students. That inspiration comes from a passion that teachers have for the subject they're teaching. Most commonly, that person spent their lives studying that subject, and they bring an infectious enthusiasm to the audience.I think many people have that enthusiasm, but they are prevented from being teachers because they didn't go through the teacher mill. Now you have teachers who have been through the teacher mill, yet they have no capacity to inspire anyone at all. It's the inspired student that continues to learn on their own. That's what separates the real achievers in the world from those who pedal along, finishing assignments.

„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 American film actor 1907 - 1979

Playboy interview, May 1971
Contexto: There's a lot of things great about life. But I think tomorrow is the most important thing. Comes in to us at midnight very clean, ya know. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.
