My advice to an aspiring actor would be to never stop learning or working for what you want. Nothing comes easy, ever, if you want something, you have to work for it.

A lot of the problems I had with fame I was bringing on myself. A lot of self-loathing, a lot of woe-is-me. Now I'm learning to see the positive side of things, instead of, like, 'I can't go to Kmart. I can't take my kids to the haunted house.' -Eminem

I did stand-up comedy for 18 years. Ten of those years were spent learning, four years were spent refining, and four years were spent in wild success. I was seeking comic originality, and fame fell on me as a byproduct. The course was more plodding than heroic. -Steve Martin

I'm just learning who I am and how relationships work and how to make them function. No different from anyone else. -Drew Barrymore

I'd like to be more patient! I just want everything now. I've tried to meditate, but it's really hard for me to stay still. I'd like to try to force myself to do it, because everybody says how wonderful meditation is for you, but I can't shut my mind up. So patience and learning is the key. -Ellen DeGeneres

I spend a lot of time learning about bird watching. -Nikki Giovanni

I used to be so aggressive, but after a while I started learning. It's not that I know how to adapt, but I know all styles of fighting so I can change my style of fighting to whatever it needs to be. That just comes from years of training and a lot of sparring partners. -Marlen Esparza

I had learning disabilities, and I couldn't express myself in the written word. -Laura Linney

I fear the boredom that comes with not learning and not taking chances. -Robert Fulghum

I always say the minute I stop making mistakes is the minute I stop learning and I've definitely learned a lot. -Miley Cyrus

Pop songs are not as graceful as they used to be. Performers today haven't gone through the regimen of learning how to write. And of course, everyone wants to own copyrights. -Hal David

There's no media training. In cooking school, there's not even manager training. You learn the fundamentals of cooking. Everything else is learning by doing. -Rene Redzepi

Learning how to work and learning how to fail is important. -Jamie Moyer

You go on these Internet blogs and people say the meanest things. I'm a normal person. Just because I'm in the spotlight doesn't mean I'm God's gift to the world. I'm learning and making mistakes just like every other 17-year-old girl out there. -Hayden Panettiere

I spend so much time with the brightest and most talented and well-rounded people. I've had the privilege of having long and very intellectual conversations with people, and sometimes I just sit there and listen. It's like a better version of a class. Even though I'm not sitting at a desk and in school, I'm still learning all the time. -Hayden Panettiere

I'd love to do a romantic comedy. And perhaps, if the character was right and I had a good gut instinct, a Bollywood movie. And I'd love to direct. One day. I'm learning a lot on the set of 'The Good Wife.' -Archie Panjabi

So in my freshman year at the University of Alabama, learning the literature on evolution, what was known about it biologically, just gradually transformed me by taking me out of literalism and increasingly into a more secular, scientific view of the world. -E. O. Wilson

The spotlight will always be on me, but it's something I'm learning to live with as the years go by. -David Beckham

But the mechanics of learning to 'throw your voice' are pretty simple. Anyone with a tongue, an upper palate, teeth, and a normal speaking voice can learn ventriloquism. -Jeff Dunham

If you feel your school is failing you, the question is why. Is it a lack of parental involvement, large classes, school violence, poor learning environment? Are there any standards to determine where problems are? Are there tutoring or mentoring programs? If the school is still failing after 3 years then what are your options? -John Rowland

When I was 8 years old, I knew nothing about martial arts. The coach told me I was talented with learning martial arts, and put me in a school. -Jet Li

Children don't just play any more – they're far too busy learning to fence and taking extra French classes. In the end, you're actually doing more damage to your children by trying to hot-house them. It's far better to remain a calm parent. -Shirley Henderson

When I was first learning songs, I'd have a favorite song, and I'd take the chords and twist them around. I'd learn the chords and then play them backward. That was my first experimenting with writing a song. -Alicia Keys

I think you're working and learning until you die. -J. K. Rowling

The day you stop learning and creating must be the most boring day. -Samantha Barks

No, I got a GED in my 30s. My kids know that I never stop learning, and they know I love reading. I have books overflowing everywhere. I am current on today's events and I read the paper every day, and we talk about it, so they see that appetite. -Michael J. Fox

It's mainly about working hard and proving to people you're serious about it, and stretching yourself and learning. The mistake a lot of actors make, particularly young ones, is allowing themselves to feel that they're the finished articles, the bee's knees, and it's not true. -Daniel Radcliffe

I grew up in the southern United States in a city which at that time during the late '40's and early '50's was the most segregated city in the country, and in a sense learning how to oppose the status quo was a question of survival. -Angela Davis

When you are learning about a martial art, it is about respect. -Jackie Chan

The soul is everlasting, and its learning experience is lifetime after lifetime. -Shirley MacLaine

We can revolutionize the attitude of inner city brown and black kids to learning. We need a civil rights movement within the African-American community. -Henry Louis Gates

By playing games you can artificially speed up your learning curve to develop the right kind of thought processes. -Nate Silver

The learning process continues until the day you die. -Kirk Douglas

I am involved with 'Write Girl,' which is such a great organization, because they go into inner city schools and work with underprivileged girls to pair them up with other writers. And it gets them learning to express themselves and become familiar with their own voice. They have a 100% success ratio getting those girls into college. -Melissa Rosenberg

I spent many years trying to write a lot like Ben Folds or John Lennon or Rivers Cuomo. I think that's healthy when you're learning to write and seeing how chords fit together and how songs take shape. -Andrew Dost

A commitment to human rights cannot be fostered simply through the transmission of knowledge. Action and experience play a crucial role in the learning process. -Daisaku Ikeda

As I was coming up, it always seemed like I was learning. If it wasn't from school, it was the 'hood. The influences of the 'hood are very powerful. -Junior Seau

I was not good in school. I could never read very fast or very well. I got tested for learning disabilities, for dyslexia. Then I got put on Ritalin and Dexedrine. I took those starting in the eighth grade. As soon as they pumped that drug into me, it would focus me right in. -Channing Tatum

I can't do the same movies all my life. I'm conscious of that. But it's a trade-off. 'Dear John' allowed me to do movies I've wanted to do. You learn to balance it out. I'm still learning. Only now am I getting to do the kinds of movies that I have wanted to do. So it's a steady climb. You don't jump into a Soderbergh film. -Channing Tatum

You can be self-empowered and still learning about how you think about things daily. -Tori Amos

Contrary to current cynicism about past golden ages, the abstraction known as 'the intelligent layperson' does exist – in the form of millions of folks with a passionate commitment to continuous learning. -Stephen Jay Gould

No Child Left Behind's fourth-grade gains aren't learning gains, they're testing gains. That's why they don't last. The law is a distraction from things that really count. -Jonathan Kozol

The learning curve is 'The Hobbit' is being shot in 3D. -Andy Serkis

Man, after all my grandma put into me learning the piano, that was a hard day, telling her I was telling jokes for a living. -Jamie Foxx

Producing is just a big learning experience. -Ashley Tisdale

I think people are learning to actually aspire to be objectified. -Christina Ricci

It's a fundamental, social attitude that the 1% supports symphonies and operas and doesn't support Johnny learning to program hip-hop beats. When I put it like that, it sounds like, 'Well, yeah,' but you start to think, 'Why not, though?' What makes one more valuable than another? -David Byrne

As children, as we learn what things are, we are slowly learning to dismiss them visually. As adults, entirely submerged in words and concepts, we spend almost all of our time thinking and worrying about the past and the future, hardly ever looking at or engaging with the world visually. -Chris Ware

I'm still shy – I'm no good at my children's parent-teacher conferences, and I'm slowly learning how to ask for what I want. But I now know that I have a reserve of courage to draw upon when I really need it. There's nothing that I'm too scared to have a go at. -Emily Mortimer

We have domesticated God's transcendence. We often learn about God at about the same time as we are learning about Santa Claus; but our ideas about Santa Claus change, mature and become more nuanced, whereas our ideas of God can remain at a rather infantile level. -Karen Armstrong

The countries who do the best in international comparisons, whether it's Finland or Japan, Denmark or Singapore, do well because they have professional teachers who are respected, and they also have family and community which support learning. -Howard Gardner

When I started learning the cello, I fell in love with the instrument because it seemed like a voice – my voice. -Mstislav Rostropovich

It is literally the case that learning languages makes you smarter. The neural networks in the brain strengthen as a result of language learning. -Michael Gove

I'm learning to hunt with rifles, because if you think about it, hunting gets you the healthiest meat – organic, free-range food. It's a totally yuppie spin on what I thought was kind of a redneck occupation. -Sarah Wayne Callies

Doing a documentary is about discovering, being open, learning, and following curiosity. -Spike Jonze

The top experts in the world are ardent students. The day you stop learning, you're definitely not an expert. -Brendon Burchard

Acting has always existed alongside my normal life. It's been a case of learning on the job. I've worked in so many styles, with so many people, so I've picked bits up from everyone and everything. -Felicity Jones

I'm interested in all forms of performance, yet I think it's difficult to be as equally talented in all of them as they call for such different skills. At the moment, I still feel I'm learning and want as much experience and variety as possible. -Felicity Jones

I had decided I wanted to write about food, and I knew the only way to do that is to speak with authority, which meant learning the language and knowing what that experience is like. -Gail Simmons

In Britain, you do your job. When you do an American TV show, there is a sense of being one with the crew, and there is a leadership element, which was a learning curve for me because it is very different culturally. In Britain, you just do it, leave and say, 'Thanks.' -Theo James

Hopefully with each thing that you do you're learning something, you're growing, and you're pushing yourself a little harder in some way or another. So I think you'd be in real trouble if each new thing that you create didn't feel like 'Oh, wow. I feel like I'm doing something a little different this time.' -Rian Johnson

Well, I think that part of being young is not exactly knowing why you do some of the things that you do. And it's by exploring your life or experimenting or making mistakes and learning from them hopefully that you start to forge an identity. -Stephen Chbosky

I spent a little time in Germany as a schoolboy learning German, and it's a country I knew very well, spent a lot of time in. I knew the history very well. I've always wanted to do a piece of work about the post-war period, of one sort or another. -Stephen Daldry

I enjoy the element of pushing yourself, learning something new, whether it's a dance step, a scene, an emotion. -Kenny Wormald

I'm only just learning what language to use when I want my microphone turned down, you know, because it's all so new to me. It can be quite difficult on a daily basis to communicate with the people I work with, so I'm just looking forward to knowing more. -Duffy

I have reared, or helped to rear, five children and the scariest bit, bar none, is the learning-to-drive part. It has filled me with anxiety not only about the children, but also about my former self and my friends. -Jane Smiley

A basic rule of life for reporters is that you should spend your time talking with and learning about people who are not sending you press releases, rather than those who are. -James Fallows

I'm learning a lot about the culture of weight loss. I didn't know there were bloggers out there who were proud to be fat. -Mick Cornett

There's some movies I watch, they're kind of like my anti-anxiety pill, my anti-depressant pill. I watch them at least once or twice a month probably. And I never stop learning from them as a filmmaker. -Mike Mills

Medieval learning was really advanced. -Terry Jones

Most sailing ships take what they call trainees, who pay to be part of the crew. The Picton Castle takes people who are absolutely raw recruits. But you can't just ride along.

I have no control over what people think of me but I have 100% control of what I think of myself, and that is so important. And not just about your body, but so many ways of confidence. You're constantly learning how to be confident, aren't you? -Beth Ditto

I tell students, 'If you are learning from YouTube I almost don't want to teach you because what you learn from YouTube it takes 10 times as long to unlearn.' They do an approximation of the centre of the note, an approximation of the interpretation, a cloned version. -Kiri Te Kanawa

Students who are interested in learning about the environment should not be dissuaded from doing so, but only if they have proved their proficiency in other basic courses, such as U.S. history.

Of course, learning is strengthened and solidified when it occurs in a safe, secure and normal environment. -Jean-Bertrand Aristide

Everything is a learning experience. -Angus T. Jones

By learning about my body and making small, subtle changes, I find out what I enjoy and what is effective. I'm always finessing: adjusting my diet and my workouts.

I really believe that what happens one day affects the next, and I think that came from that experience of learning that if I told the score inning by inning, play by play, it built up to its natural climax. -Doris Kearns Goodwin

I have two different categories of favorite films. One is the emotional favorites, which means these are generally films that I saw when I was a kid; anything you see in your formative years is more powerful, because it really stays with you forever. The second category is films that I saw while I was learning the craft of motion pictures. -John Carpenter

The fundamentals of baseball haven't changed, but how we can teach those fundamentals has. With an e-book, learning can be more rewarding and fun. -Dusty Baker

The director's job is full of all sorts of annoyances and details – like how many cars are on the street. Ugh. I don't want it. I like my gig. And I feel that for the next 30 years or so I can keep learning more about it. -Tyne Daly

Obviously, I've been on sets before but nothing as big as 'Twilight.' You forget sometimes that you're on set of one of the biggest movies ever- so when you just sit back and think about it its just so incredible. It's such a great learning experience. -Booboo Stewart

I like to start out each day from the beginning. I'm always learning things. -Bruce Weber

I think people should look at learning about Native American history the same as visiting Washington, D.C., and seeing the monuments there. It's all part of the package. -Chaske Spencer

Particularly for English people, Shakespeare is always at the forefront of both drama and the English language. He's always been there. I can't remember starting school and not learning about him. -Jamie Campbell Bower

As I got older, I really got into Tupac's poetry, his books and just learning about his life and what he was into. -Jhene Aiko

I love nature and enjoy learning new skills. -Leona Lewis

Generally, I like making my own mistakes and learning from them because that's what I think life is about. -Taylor Momsen

Growing up, my sisters and I would always talk stories. One of my frustrations was I didn't know anything about cameras. I didn't know how to make a film and I obviously didn't have a special effects budget. I was a kid. So I was learning to draw to get down the stuff that was in my head, that I couldn't afford to actually do. -Jennifer Yuh Nelson

I finish so many books it's amazing. I'm also doing Rosetta Stone, learning some French. -Kellan Lutz

But I think it's hard for me to only put out one record a year. Because I get too antsy. But it's good I'm learning to do that, because each record counts. And you should make it count. -Ty Segall

The mind of the polyglot is a very particular thing, and scientists are only beginning to look closely at how acquiring a second language influences learning, behavior and the very structure of the brain itself. -Jeffrey Kluger

We're learning how important it is both to preserve sibling relationships if they work and repair them if they're broken. We're also learning a lot about nonliteral siblings – stepsiblings, half-siblings – and the surprising power they can have. -Jeffrey Kluger

I love learning about different dialects and I own all sorts of regional and time-period slang dictionaries. I often browse through relevant ones while writing a story. I also read a lot of diaries and oral histories. -Ron Rash

Film, for me, has been a process of learning on the job. -Michael Stuhlbarg

I speak about family and adoption because it 100% changed my life and who I am. It definitely played a very large role into just learning how to be grateful for what you have and being fulfilled in a way that a lot of adopted kids don't feel. -Jenna Ushkowitz

I don't think any other city in the world… the sun doesn't shine the same way anywhere as it does in New York. And then I guess everyone's very good at hanging out. Not in a crazy way, but you're just constantly interacting and learning. -Ben Lovett

Everything in life is a lesson and I have learned from each marriage. Yes, I've made mistakes but every experience is a learning curve. -Patsy Kensit

I avoid the media circus, keep my head down and try to keep growing and learning things. -Georgie Fame

My one thing is I continue to be interested and want to be a student. I don't want to be a master. When I'm learning something, I'm in my element. -Chick Corea

I want to keep learning, keep exploring, keep doing more. -Jessye Norman

Art in the classroom not only spurs creativity, it also inspires learning. -Mickey Hart

Working with David Gordon Green, and Jonah Hill, and Michael Cera, and Drew Barrymore, and all of those people – those are the best people in comedy to work with. Anna Faris. You know, that's my goal, to keep learning and to just keep working with the best people I can. And yeah, we do all hang out, and we all kind of know each other. -Ari Graynor

Everything starts and ends with the song, and working with writers and really learning their process and craft was an invaluable experience. -Tommy Mottola

My kid is seven years old and is learning to read and conjugate, but I don't agree with that kind of education because I feel that the concepts are not contextualized… it's interesting to try to make my kid a reflective boy, rather than just a repetitive boy, even if he doesn't agree with me. -Ana Tijoux

One of the things we did at PayPal was collaborative filtering and machine learning: looking at patterns of human behavior. We used it there to predict when people would try to cheat the system to get money. But you can predict pretty much any behavior with a certain amount of accuracy. -Max Levchin

Students teach all sorts of things but most importantly they make explicit the courage that it takes to be a learner, the courage it takes to open yourself to the transformative power of real learning and that courage I am exposed to almost every day at MIT and that I'm deeply grateful for. -Junot Diaz

By discovering how our minds work, we can improve our learning power and unlock our true potential. -Robert Winston

The learning curve on soaps is through the roof because it's a three-camera setup. There's a master and then there's two singles. And the great thing about soaps, and soap actors will tell you, is that when you get your line wrong, they don't re-shoot it. They just cut to the person listening. -John C. McGinley

Education should not be about building more schools and maintaining a system that dates back to the Industrial Revolution. We can achieve so much more, at unmatched scale with software and interactive learning. -Naveen Jain

Just think of the opportunities we can unlock by making education as addictive as a video game. This type of experiential, addictive learning improves decision-making skills and increases the processing speed and spatial skills of the brain. When was the last time your child asked for help with a video game? -Naveen Jain

My children have been learning lessons about entrepreneurship since they were in kindergarten, and these lessons are paying off: even though they are only 22, 18, and 15, they have already collectively launched three nonprofit organizations and several new businesses. -Naveen Jain

Just as physical exercise is a well-known and well-accepted means to improve health for anyone, regardless of age or background, so can the brain be put 'into shape' for optimal learning. -Naveen Jain

For me, becoming a man had a lot to do with learning communication, and I learned about that by acting. -Adam Driver

I feel like I'm always learning from people. -Douglas Brinkley

The business of life is learning that you can't lay down the terms. -Julian Fellowes

Well, I'm from the South originally. I grew up in South Carolina definitely learning about manners and being proper and having to go to cotillions. -Anna Camp

Whether I'm being influenced by new music that I'm listening to, books I've read, my friends, or my faith, I'm learning all the time. -Hayley Williams

In 'Three Cups of Tea' I was fairly critical of the military. And I mentioned that they're laptop warriors and there's no boots on the ground. But I can say now that they've gone through a tremendous learning curve. -Greg Mortenson

I get scared easily, so I'm not one for just sitting down with a bowl of popcorn and watching horror stories. But, I mean, I'm learning more. Maybe one day I'd like to be able to watch them. -Taissa Farmiga

It is an honor and a privilege to be of service and support; however, I realize people are not putting their confidence in me. Instead, they are actually learning to trust themselves. My job is to affirm and support them in the process and teach them to do what I do when I need strength: I begin within. -Iyanla Vanzant

I'm moving into that eldership age, you know? I'm at the 'wise woman' age where it's not about learning, but utilizing the information that I have in a way that serves other people. That's a high calling and it's a great responsibility. -Iyanla Vanzant

My mother was a first-grade teacher, so I credit her with this lifelong intellectual curiosity I have, and love of reading and learning. -Chesley Sullenberger

My message going forward is that I want to remind everyone in the aviation industry – especially those who manage aviation companies and those who regulate aviation – that we owe it to our passengers to keep learning how to do it better. -Chesley Sullenberger

One of the things I teach my children is that I have always invested in myself, and I have never stopped learning, never stopped growing. -Chesley Sullenberger

We are all in the business of sales. Teachers sell students on learning, parents sell their children on making good grades and behaving, and traditional salesmen sell their products. -Dave Ramsey

80 percent of learning is visual, so children who can't afford vision correction are at such a disadvantage. -Ellen Hollman

The thing about music is it's not an obscure pursuit, it's a very natural thing for human beings to do. Once you put in the effort, the learning curve is very fast. -Grimes

For me, literature is a way of enlarging myself by learning about people who are not like me. -Anne Fadiman

Themes around education and learning run through my work. -David Almond

I am a teacher and the reason I'm a teacher is because I'm learning as hard as I can. I'm not any different from anybody else. I am searching and having some success finding answers. -Andy Andrews

I've found in the past that the more closely I identify with the heroine, the less completely she emerges as a person. So from the first novel I've been learning techniques to distance myself from the characters so that they are not me and I don't try to protect them in ways that aren't good for the story. -Beth Gutcheon

I'm open for possibilities. I'm open for choices. I always welcome new ideas. I'm always eager to learn. I'm never going to close my mind from learning. -Cesar Millan

I consider social skills a bit like learning a language. I've been practising it for so long over so many years I've almost lost my accent. -Daniel Tammet

My mother is not a model. She is not perfect. That awareness is part of learning to love someone. Predicting the actions of someone is an act of love. We persist, even when we get it wrong. That's the beauty of love. -Daniel Tammet

What we need in medical schools is not to teach empathy, as much as to preserve it – the process of learning huge volumes of information about disease, of learning a specialized language, can ironically make one lose sight of the patient one came to serve; empathy can be replaced by cynicism. -Abraham Verghese

It's really important to me to promote worthy causes. But not in a heavy, obligatory, responsibility way. I really admired that as a kid, learning about the 'Elton John AIDS Foundation.' And I was obsessed with The Indigo Girls. And they are the consummate activist group, always reaching out, especially to Native causes and things like that. -Brandi Carlile

Our education system is increasingly embracing a black-and-white way of thinking, in which 'learning' and 'play' are diametrically opposed. 'Learning' is the serious stuff that happens inside a classroom and can be measured via multiple choice questions and a No. 2 pencil. 'Play' is frivolous, fun, and worst of all, optional. -Darell Hammond

Growing up in a group home, and with an undiagnosed learning disability to boot, the odds of success were not on my side. But when I joined the high school football team, I learned the value of discipline, focus, persistence, and teamwork – all skills that have proven vital to my career as a C.E.O. and social entrepreneur. -Darell Hammond

And the thing about me is, I have a lot of mellow songs, because they're the easiest for me to write. I wanted to try to make some more upbeat songs, so, I ended up gravitating toward writing songs with friends, which was a great learning process, and also we came up with great songs. Those are the songs that came out the most naturally. -Priscilla Ahn

I've been watching 'Pawn Stars' every week for the last year. I like learning about the history behind the items that people bring into the pawnshop. I actually pawned a ring once that a woman sent to me while I was on 'Jerry Springer.' It was really gaudy. -Steve Wilkos

I worry sometimes that I'm a bit moralistic; always writing about men who are learning to grow up, not be so self-absorbed, selfish or badly behaved. I wonder if that's dull and liberal and wimpy? I should probably write something that celebrates wickedness. -David Nicholls

I was in a church choir early on and that really helped me musically in terms of chops, learning how to sing harmonies. -Emily Saliers

I enjoyed reading and learning at school, and at university I enjoyed extending my reading and learning. Once I left Cambridge, I went to Yale as a fellow. I spent two years there. After that, George Gale made me literary editor of 'The Spectator.' -Peter Ackroyd

Learning ballroom dancing is great for your brain. But it only works for three to six months. After that, you've got all the benefit you can get, and so you have to move on to yoga, and then Tai Chi, and then bridge, always keeping on the steep part of the learning curve. -Nolan Bushnell

I doubt the terrorists saw 9/11 as a teaching opportunity. And we're not really a culture geared to anything as humble as 'learning.' But I was disappointed in how quickly everyone wanted to get back to normal. It was as if we watched terrorism on TV for a while, then got bored and turned back to 'American Idol.' -Jess Walter

Historically, Labour has used technology as a form of control. We would use pagers and faxes to send out messages telling people what line to take. The key learning from the Obama campaign is to use technology to empower your supporters. -Douglas Alexander

You might say that economic history is the history of people learning to manage risk. -James Surowiecki

Doing what you do well is death. Your duty is to keep trying to do things that you don't do well, in the hope of learning. -John Banville

When we say yes to the grace of God, we are learning how to die. -Joni Eareckson Tada

I remember reading 'The Grapes of Wrath' in high school in 1983. My family had immigrated to the U.S. three years before, and I had spent the better part of the first two years learning English. John Steinbeck's book was the first book I read in English where I had an 'Aha!' moment, namely in the famed turtle chapter. -Khaled Hosseini

Many times, what people call 'writer's block' is the confusion that happens when a writer has a great idea, but their writing skill is not up to the task of putting that idea down on paper. I think that learning the craft of writing is critical. -Pearl Cleage

Talent is required, but much of writing is a matter of craft, which develops with time, attention, patience and practice, like playing an instrument or learning to dance. -Susan Wiggs

I always love it when I hear back from kids who say they discovered Percy Jackson and now wear their learning difference as a badge of honour. -Rick Riordan

My goal in the classroom was always to make sure they were having so much fun that they didn't realize they were learning. -Rick Riordan

I can't promise that every child with learning differences will become a novelist, but I do think all children can become lifelong readers. -Rick Riordan

Now more than ever is the time to really work on learning a money management system that can work, no matter how low things seem right now. -T. Harv Eker

Spirituality is no different from what we've been doing for two thousand years just by going to church and receiving the sacraments, being baptized, learning to pray, and reading Scriptures rightly. It's just ordinary stuff. -Eugene H. Peterson

That's the whole spiritual life. It's learning how to die. And as you learn how to die, you start losing all your illusions, and you start being capable now of true intimacy and love. -Eugene H. Peterson

I'm endlessly putting myself on tapes for things over in America! I'm always sitting at home, learning lines, sending stuff to America. -Arthur Darvill

Life isn't fair. It's true, and you still have to deal with it. Whining about it rarely levels the playing field, but learning to rise above it is the ultimate reward. -Harvey Mackay

I remember a conversation with my parents about who the people on the TV were, and learning they were actors and they acted out this story and just thinking that was the most fantastic notion, and that's what I want to do. -David Tennant

One of the bigger misconceptions of learning is that many skills take a lifetime to get world-class at, or 10,000 hours to become world-class at. -Tim Ferriss

When I left the U.S. for the first time, I spent my first year abroad in Japan. That culture shock and abundance of new stimuli combined with a lack of guidance forced me to develop my own approaches to learning and juggling. -Tim Ferriss

You can enjoy stargazing just by going out and learning a couple constellations with your kids. -Tim Ferriss

What I've come to know is that in life, it's not always the questions we ask, but rather our ability to hear the answers that truly enriches our understanding. Never, never stop learning. -Lester Holt

In all the difficult decisions that I made through the course of running Loudcloud and Opsware, I never once felt brave. In fact, I often felt scared to death. I never lost those feelings, but after much practice, I learned to ignore them. That learning process might also be called the courage development process. -Ben Horowitz

I grew up watching my father work, and learning from him what good quality is. I took from him the passion to create beautiful and exclusive products. He also taught me to persevere if I want to reach my goals. -Diego Della Valle

I learned to basically pull my own weight, just do my own thing. I spent a lot of time alone and I loved it. It was actually really great because to the present day I love spending time alone. I go bicycling alone, go climbing alone and I just love being with myself and observing myself and learning something. -Sebastian Thrun

Concepts like edX and online learning will transform education. This will completely change the world. I believe that people will move to online learning, both on campuses and worldwide. We have a real opportunity to be able to bring people around the world into our fold. -Anant Agarwal

There is a huge value in learning with instant feedback. -Anant Agarwal

I think we can question whether degrees are antediluvian. Online learning has flexibility. Why not master courses in energy, writing, communications, and engineering and get a credential? -Anant Agarwal

The online credential, the online certificate is very different from an on campus certificate. And we really believe that online learning and the EdX platform and the EdX portal, these are ways in which – you can think of them as a rising tide that's going to lift all boats whether for students worldwide or on our campuses. -Anant Agarwal

If we want boys to succeed, we need to bring them back to education by making education relevant to them and bring in more service learning and vocational education. -Michael Gurian

Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg didn't finish college. Too much emphasis is placed on formal education – I told my children not to worry about their grades but to enjoy learning. -Nassim Nicholas Taleb

School has never really been about individualized learning, but about how to be socialized as a citizen and as a human being, so that we, we have important rules in school, always emphasizing the fact that one is part of a group. -Neil Postman

Everybody has fallen down or been disappointed in love. Where you truly shine is when you get back up. Use it as a learning experience and believe in all of the possibilities. -Sherry Argov

Writing in a journal reminds you of your goals and of your learning in life. It offers a place where you can hold a deliberate, thoughtful conversation with yourself. -Robin S. Sharma

I'm learning simplicity and how to wear my body. I'm enjoying life and trying to be the best me. -Gelila Bekele

When counting on learning from innovation, there are great successes but also failures. The Wright Brothers invented the aircraft and started an amazing process of innovation, where we now have planes that carry 500 passengers. Along the way there were some silly looking vehicles that crashed early on. -Sheldon Whitehouse

My daddy wanted me to be a farmer; feel the smoothness of Alabama clay and become one of the first blacks in my town to own land. But, I was worried about my history being caked with that southern clay, and I subscribed to a different kind of teaching and learning in my bones and in my spirit. -John Henrik Clarke

I don't ever want to stop learning. And I really want to learn French fluently. It would be great to go and live in France. -Alexa Chung

I find that we must be careful not to judge or weigh in on anything other than ourselves. I am living and learning this still! -Lisa Rinna

I think it's never too late to learn – or it's a lesson that's good to continue learning – that you need to treat everyone on a set with respect. -Alison Brie

Gardening is learning, learning, learning. That's the fun of them. You're always learning. -Helen Mirren

I'm terrified of learning lines, and I've always been terrified that I won't learn them. -Helen Mirren

For a while, I was saying 'no' way too often. I turned down 'An Officer and A Gentleman,' 'Splash' and 'Midnight Express.' I could name you tons more. I would go off and experience life instead of working – I was learning to fly jets, went on an African safari, sailed the Caribbean – which wasn't necessarily bad. -John Travolta

I used to be really insecure about my self-education. I'm definitely always learning. But there's many ways to learn. There are many, many ways to always be a learner. -Maggie Grace

In England, when we're at drama school, we spend a lot of time learning the craft from playwrights and stage actors, who are very well trained in the basics of acting because they need to get it right the first time – you can't have second or third takes when you're in front of a live audience, unlike in film. -Sam Claflin

Sometimes people come out of school right now and they immediately want a job doing something. And there's nothing wrong with just listening and learning and watching. -Alexandra Kotur

At the very core of my relationship to learning is the idea that we should be as organic as possible. We need to cultivate a deeply refined introspective sense, and build our relationship to learning around our nuance of character. -Joshua Waitzkin

The truth is that throughout my careers in both chess and the martial arts, I often knew that my rivals were more naturally gifted than me – either with their mental machines or their bodies. But I have believed in my training, my approach to learning, and my ability to rise to the challenge under pressure. -Joshua Waitzkin

One of the main focuses of my training sessions is to help individuals find their unique voices in the learning process. We all have our strengths, our weaknesses, our styles of learning, our personalities. Developing introspective sensitivity to these issues is critical to long-term success. -Joshua Waitzkin

My coach and my parents both had this relationship to what I was doing, which was allowing me to express myself with chess. And so I could love it. I had a passion for it. I was expressing myself through chess, and I was learning about myself through chess. -Joshua Waitzkin

I think my parents gave me a love of learning; from there you set out on your own path. -Gore Verbinski

I think the cardinal rule of learning to write is learning to read first. I learned to write by learning to read. -Siddhartha Mukherjee

During my time at Watchung Hills Regional High School, I was fortunate to have a number of teachers who inspired me and filled me with enthusiasm for learning. -Adam Riess

I think my biggest learning experience is that it's okay to be who you are – you don't have to exactly fit the mold of what people think a certain kind of career is. I think that discovery – of really knowing who I am and being okay with that and loving myself – was amazing. -Dree Hemingway

Every day is a learning experience for city kids, and they are really sort of forced to interact with everyone around them and develop into social beings. -Elisabeth Hasselbeck

I'm still learning how to be comfortable touring. I haven't found that balance yet. -Sharon Van Etten

Moving to New York City and doing what I do, social anxiety is a really ridiculous kind of curse to have. But I met people along the way who deal with it – performers as well – and they are learning to deal with it daily and deal with it in different ways. -Sharon Van Etten

I think this industry can be tough on everyone. You have to surround yourself with supportive people and know when to put your foot down and do what's best for you and your family. The first few years in the music industry can be a steep learning curve, and I've definitely developed a thicker skin! -Rebecca Ferguson

I definitely don't see myself as much of a singer, because my upbringing is really based around the guitar, learning chord progressions and that sort of thing. So the singing aspect of what I do has been a secondary adventure. -M. Ward

When I first started making music, it was learning other people's songs and putting them onto four-track. Like Beatles songs and stuff. When I started writing, I used the singing side of the production as a vehicle for melody and lyrical ideas. -M. Ward

It's important for a parent to learn to take delight in a child whose behavior might seem mystifying. In the case of an extroverted parent with an introverted child, it can be learning to see the inner riches of your child that may not always be expressed on the surface – but are there. -Susan Cain

One thing I'm hearing a lot is from teachers who have felt that there's something wrong with the extreme group learning, but felt like they couldn't say that out loud. And apparently the discussion is now opening up. I think change is going to be a long time coming. -Susan Cain

Sometimes I have to shut off the omnipresent disco ball and flashing lights that are always in my head. It's a part of maturing, I guess – just learning that it's not just always about a quick, easy fix of getting people to dance. -Mark Ronson

I like learning stuff. The more information you can get about a person or a subject, the more you can pour into a potential project. I made a decision to do different things. I want to do things that have a better chance of being thought of as original. I do everything I can to disrupt my comfort zone. -Brian Grazer

Doctoral training is devoted almost entirely to learning to do research, even though most Ph.Ds who enter academic life spend far more time teaching than they do conducting experiments or writing books. -Derek Bok

Knowledge, learning, is an eternal thing. -Gordon B. Hinckley

I was never given any hand-outs. I started at the bottom and was very good at finding people who knew more than me and learning from them. -Simon Cowell

The consciousness of lucid dreaming is a cultural evolution. It's something that we are talking about and learning about, not biological evolution. -Stephen LaBerge

If you're eight and you live in Los Angeles and everybody has toys and you go to a country that has a Marxist dictatorship and there are no toy stores and nobody speaks English and it's blazing hot every day and they only have fish, which you don't like, then you tend not to appreciate the cultural lessons you're learning. -Zooey Deschanel

When I exercise, I like to take lots of different classes because I want to really apply myself and feel like I'm learning a new skill. Not that I ever want to have to demonstrate any of those skills! -Zooey Deschanel

The gateways to wisdom and learning are always open, and more and more I am choosing to walk through them. Barriers, blocks, obstacles, and problems are personal teachers giving me the opportunity to move out of the past and into the Totality of Possibilities. -Louise L. Hay

There is many a man without learning will get the better of a college-bred man, and will have better words, too. -Lady Gregory

Building a successful company (or living a happy life, for that matter) is not about embracing someone else's philosophy, but staying true to your own beliefs about the world and learning from the mistakes you make along the way. -Ben Parr

Sure, you're an intelligent and highly capable individual, and you are learning a lot on the fly as you build your company. But you also need to come to terms with the fact that there are things you have chosen not to be an expert in. -Kathryn Minshew

If you're an adult and you choose not to believe in science, fine, but please don't prevent your children from learning about it and letting them draw their own conclusions. -Bill Nye

You can always keep learning with acting, because the school is life and yourself and your friends and your relationships. I'm fascinated by it! It's infinito! -Penelope Cruz

I don't think there is anything wrong with learning from people who are better than you. -Asa Larsson

Most people my age, their musical life ended in the '80s. They stick with what they know. But my tastes are much broader. And I don't want to stop learning. -Paul Weller

When I was a kid it was much more difficult. You're trying to understand what the director wants. It's a learning process. Now, you go in and it's more of a collaboration. -Moises Arias

I'm really passionate about things I enjoy, and I like to be out there doing things, and learning and challenging myself. So it's just more fun that way, just to get out and try and do and learn and meet people and try to do something new. -Steve Nash

We aren't upset when Paramount makes a $200 million movie that flops, but if a charity experiments with a $5 million fundraising event that fails, we call in the attorneys. So charities are petrified of trying bold new revenue-generating endeavors and can't develop the powerful learning curves the for-profit sector can. -Dan Pallotta

I enjoy living life and I enjoy going to different restaurants and eating my way through a country and going to different museums and learning about different cultures. -Mila Kunis

I'm so supported, and I'm so privileged. So many women today are single parents; I don't feel different. I think you get out of life what you put into it… and Bluebell was a beautiful accident. I feel blessed to have her. I'm learning every day as a mother. -Geri Halliwell

Training a dog, to me, is on a par with learning to dance with my wife or teaching my son to ski. These are fun things we do together. If anyone even talks about dominating the dog or hurting him or fighting him or punishing him, don't go there. -Ian Dunbar

There are so many lessons in life that can be learned through golf. I am not afraid to say that I am still learning some of them and probably will continue for some time. -Paula Creamer

I grew up in the age of discount air fare, and for me, the act of joining a culture was a great way about learning about that different culture. So I grew up in the South, and went to college in the North, and found out that I learned about myself as a Southerner by leaving the South and going to the Northeast. -Bruce Feiler

I learned there's an amazing unexplored territory in terms of narrative. Before, I thought the unexplored territory was the form, the way you shoot a movie. Now, I'm learning about the beautiful marriage between form and narrative. -Alfonso Cuaron

Confucianism is all about tempering your instincts with intellectual discipline, with book learning. -Brian Reynolds Myers

Online education, then, can serve two goals. For students lucky enough to have access to great teachers, blended learning can mean even better outcomes at the same or lower cost. And for the millions here and abroad who lack access to good, in-person education, online learning can open doors that would otherwise remain closed. -Daphne Koller

Not everything that happens in an in-person classroom is currently replicated with an online course, and perhaps the experience will never be the quite the same. But there are new opportunities that online learning opens up that would have never been possible without this technology. -Daphne Koller

By 2025, we can expect the world to be completely digital. Paper books will be a thing of the past. Education will be delivered through analytics-based assessment tools and adaptive learning platforms. -Osman Rashid

Textbooks are going to remain a key part of learning. They just need to go digital, become more interactive and they need more analytics. -Osman Rashid

I have to take the positives from 2012 and the negatives as well because you learn more than you do from the positives. It has been a great season last year, a lot of learning, and now it's another approach. The way I will approach this year is totally different, so we are ready to fight for it. -Sergio Perez

Sailing is the closest I can get to nature – it's adrenaline, fear, a constant challenge and learning experience, an adventure into the unknown. And of course there is nothing better than wearing the same T-shirt for days and not brushing my hair for weeks. -Daria Werbowy

Most artists, you know, you spend their entire lives learning how to play music and write songs, and they don't really know how the music business works. -Moby

One of my favourite kinds of movie is the American picaresque, in which the characters make their way across the country, learning about life against the gorgeous backdrops of that vast land. -Steven Pinker

We really are creatures of a violent world, biologically speaking – watching violence and learning about it is one of our cognitive drives. -Steven Pinker

As a graduate student, I wrote a long paper connecting the dots between mathematical models of learning and language development in children. It was published in a major journal. -Steven Pinker

I grew up watching and learning from the ultimate partnership, and that is of my father and late uncle. -Jonathan Tisch

Definitely working on 'Deal or No Deal' was a learning experience, and it helped me to understand what I would rather be doing. -Meghan Markle

I just love learning about the way people used to live their lives, and I think what also ties into that is psychology, because I like knowing why people do certain things. -Molly Quinn

There is no question that creative intelligence comes not through learning things you find in books or histories that have already been written, but by focusing on and giving value to experience as it happens. -Antony Gormley
