My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
Wow, Marty--isn't that the truth. This one is just so simply profound, it says it all. Nice to be back and catching up on your wonderful aphorisms. Vacation was great--but it's also nice to have time to catch up with my friends. I hope you are well.Melinda
Very true. Good teachers often say they learn from their students — I find it an elegant statement.
Learning happens with both teachers and students if it's done well!
Nice blogspot, shame about all the angles.
You could not be more wrong in both camps.Your arguments are based on the obtuse.Your followers believe they are acute.Quite frankly my friend you are shamed by the angles.
Does help if someone warns you when it comes to anything fatal though... some lessons best learnt than taught or is that just natural selection?
Learning is a two-way process that is facilitated by a skilled teacher. Unfortunately, many teachers don't understand this and merely stand in front of a class effectively preaching, unaware or unconcerned whether what is being taught is also being learned.
Teachers learn what our students teach us.
That is so true Marty. In fact we never stop learning - everyday and every experience brings us new lessons to learn and new challenges to overcome. This world is one big university campus we live in. :)
This is very true, and it's a perfect explanation to why we all have to learn from our own mistakes.
If a lesson is not learned it is not taught.. Again you state a simple truth in the fewest words. Thank you
