Life's Little Lessons

in #life2 months ago

Don’t be mistaken that studying is for children, and in school only. As long as there is still something to learn, we are all students, and this will mean all our lives. In school, we were taught the basics of an education. It is after we leave school, when we are start working in the society – that’s where real learning about life starts.

Aphorisms, proverbs, maxims... teach the best life lessons. These are accumulated wisdom of the ages, teachings of the sages, gurus, philosophers and people who had experienced and understood what life is about. They are valuable lessons.

Take an interest in aphorisms. These simple phrases of a few easy to understand words, often have much truth in them. Learn from them and you will understand life a little better. You might get a head start in life, and avoid some common, but costly mistakes people make on their journeys in life.

Have a look at today’s selection of aphorisms, and quotes.
