Happy Valentine Day! It's time to fall in love with learning...

If I could give one piece advice to a person it would be this: fall in love with learning. See what some have said about learning…

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” ― Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”― Confucius
