Instruction is useless unless the pupil understands the need for instruction and is genuinely willing to learn. The youth must seek the teacher.
See this as an opportunity to expand your vision and your experience. Open your mind and put aside preconceptions and prejudices. Remember – your goal is to learn, not to show off what you already know.
Combine eagerness to learn with modesty and humility. In this way you will maximize the benefits of your education.
Once you have begun the course of instruction, neither you nor your teacher should give up until you have thoroughly mastered the information you need. Successful education requires not only the initial assimilation of material but also the development of good habits and consistency of effort.
One cannot learn until one is ready to receive.
To make progress in life is to grow up, to put aside youthful folly and replace illusion with clarity. You cannot live your life through wishful thinking.
