It’s never too late to learn, but sometimes we learn when it’s too late.
“Look at children. Of course they may quarrel, but generally speaking they do not harbour ill feelings as much or as long as adults do. Most adults have the advantage of education over children, but what is the use of an education if they show a big smile while hiding negative feelings deep inside? Children don’t usually act in such a manner. If they feel angry with someone, they express it, and then it is finished. They can still play with that person the following day.” ― His Holiness The Dalai Lama XIV
Your own self is your ultimate teacher. The outer teacher is merely a milestone. It is only your inner teacher that will walk with you to the goal, for he is the goal.” — Nisargadatta Maharaj

“One problem with our current society is that we have an attitude towards education as if it is there simply to make you more clever… The most important use of knowledge and education is to help us understand the importance of engaging in more wholesome actions and bringing about discipline within our minds. The proper utilization of our education and our knowledge is to effect changes from within to develop a good heart.” — His Holiness The Dalai Lama XIV
“The most useful piece of learning for the uses of life is to unlearn what is untrue.” — Greek Philosopher, Antisthenes (444 B.C.–371 B.C.)
“Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school.” — Albert Einstein
“Knowledge is learning something every day. Wisdom is letting go of something every day.” [Zen proverb]
