Live and learn

Learn from your results, especially the ones you didn’t intend to have. There is no such thing as failure when you try. There are only results. If the results are not to your liking, you’ve learned what not to do.

Learn from others. The experiences of other people can teach you much about your own life. And, you also learn by teaching others.

Learn from going places you’ve never gone, meeting people you’ve never known, living new experiences, reading new ideas. Learn from taking on challenges, and pushing yourself beyond your boundaries. Learn by changing your perspective, by considering others’ opinions. Learn from beauty, from love, from caring.

Learn at every opportunity. What you learn is always yours. Learn more and become more.

— Ralph Marston
