15 Inspiring Quotes for Students

rss | t f | g+

I love my collection of quotes. Sometimes, when I’m feeling uninspired, I really do pull them out and read over them, perhaps even for the thousandth time.

There’s something magical about the words of great people, who’ve been there, done that. Here are some of my favourite ones I thought would be nice to share:


“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”



“Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking.”

William Butler Yeats


“Learning is not a spectator sport.”

D. Blocher


“It is wiser to find out than to suppose.”

Mark Twain


“Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.”

B. F. Skinner


“I think, therefore I am. (Cogito, ergo sum.)”

Rene Descartes


“Experience: that most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my God do you learn.”

C.S. Lewis


“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.”

Albert Einstein


“The purpose of learning is growth, and our minds, unlike our bodies, can continue growing as long as we live.”

Mortimer Adler


“The best way to predict your future is to create it.”

Abraham Lincoln


“The journey is the reward.”

Chinese Proverb


“Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”



“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”

Will Rogers


“Learning is like rowing upstream, not to advance is to drop back.”

Chinese Proverb


“Be a student as long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life.”

Henry L. Doherty
