The Wonder of Being Self Taught
My Microsoft son, sent me this link today. About being self taught. When I am dead and gone, and my children are left to represent our family values, these thoughts represent some of the highest values I hope to have passed on. Here are a few highlights.
“Self-education is, I firmly believe, the only kind of education there is.”
- Isaac Asimov
“Persistence and self-education are the keys. Nobody can teach you how to write - you have to teach yourself, using the examples of others for inspiration.”
- Greg Bear
“Vitally important for a young man or woman is, first, to realize the value of education and then to cultivate earnestly, aggressively, ceaselessly, the habit of self-education.”
- B. C. Forbes
“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.”
- Jim Rohn
Take a look. We live in exciting times to be teaching our children the value of being home taught.
