A quote for learning new things brings wisdom.  You enrich yourself at school, university, and throughout life.  It’s a lifelong thing that brings so much value and benefits! 

Personal growth never ends.  The more you enrich yourself, the better off you are.  Read my article for some famous quotes on the topic.

As a self-improvement blogger, I just couldn’t stop myself from sharing some quotes that I came across while searching on the internet.  I read each one of them, saw so much meaning, and would love to dedicate this article to my readers.

Here’s my list:

Formal education 

Even when school and university years are gone, we grow personally at all ages.  Formal education is great and so are informal modes of studying.  I develop myself through online courses, videos, books, and more.  It’s an ongoing habit!

“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.” – Albert Einstein

“’Study’ was the cry that reverberated in the corridors of my mind. Study to enable yourself to face the arguments advanced by opposition. Study to arm yourself with arguments in favor of your cult. I began to study.” – Bhagat Singh

“My advice for young people is, study what you love and intern in what you want to do. And I think it’s okay to pivot as many times as you need to.” – Eva Chen

Learn from experience

Gain from your life experiences and those of others.  Take the time to listen to what industry leaders have found to be best practices.  In your personal life, gain from close ones and especially what the elderly at home have to teach.

“I am a woman in process. I’m just trying like everybody else. I try to take every conflict, every experience, and learn from it. Life is never dull.” – Oprah Winfrey

“Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.” – Bill Gates

“If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience.” – George Bernard Shaw

Improve through mistakes

Improve from past mistakes and failures. There is no failure if you take advantage of it. It’s an opportunity to know and not to repeat the same thing.

“I’m most proud of the blessings that God has bestowed upon me, in my life. He’s given me the vision to truly see that you can fall down, but you can still get back up. Hopefully I’ll learn from my mistakes and have the opportunity to strengthen and improve the next thing I do.” – Martin Lawrence

“Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from.” – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

More about life

There is so much to find out about in different spheres of life. The more you do, the more you gain. Being open to ongoing personal growth is key to self-improvement.

“A life lesson for me is, how do you muster the courage to take on a new risk? Whether it’s starting up a business or taking on a new project or expedition. I think the risks that we take are all relative to the risk-taker.” – Ann Bancroft

“My heroes in real life are definitely my mom for being true to herself, for having a foot in both worlds, for being so very polite – Canadian and also such a traditional Greek woman. I would sum it up this way: the life lesson she would say is be polite while you’re breaking the rules.” – Nia Vardalos

My list ends here, but there are many more great sayings and recites that illustrate how invaluable it is to grasp things and improve personally and professionally.  Can you think of some things that famous people have said on the topic?  Which ones have had an impact on your life?

When you see what famous people have experienced, it’s inspiring.  You benefit through life lessons, and it’s crucial to success.  Listen to the elderly as well, as they know best.


You gain so much from broadening your knowledge.  This includes any type of learning and in all aspects of life.  It’s a true blessing that brings so many benefits.  If you find my article valuable, please comment and share so that more people can read it.  Thank you!!
