SIR RICHARD BRANSON

 

"I am always ready to learn, but I do not always like being taught"

SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL

 

"The great end of learning is not knowledge but action"

PETER HONEY

 

"Training that brings about no change is as effective as a parachute that opens on the first bounce"

ANON

 

"If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn't seem so wonderful after all"

MICHELANGELO

 

"Spoon feeding in the long run teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon"

EM FORSTER

 

"You don't have to be sick to get better"

MICHAEL JOSEPHSON

 

"It is in fact nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the wholly curious of inquiry"

"You cannot teach a man anything. You can only help him discover it within himself"

GALILEO GALILEI
