Lessons of life

Take no satisfaction in the failure of others. Learn from it.

Harbor no resentment at the success of others. Learn from it.

Learn from what works, from what doesn’t work. Learn from sparkling new ventures and grand old stories.

Learn from the pain, and from the pleasure too. Learn from what amazes you, what repulses you, what drains you, what energizes you.

Learn by challenging what you know. Learn by admitting what you don’t know.

Life’s lessons contain some of its greatest value. Seize every opportunity to learn, and claim that value for your own.
