Quotations and famous sayings for me are difficult to get the idea and to understand the real true meaning they hide inside. Anyway, I have some for myself in order to motivate me whenever I get into trouble, sometimes It really helps !
" no PAIN, no GAIN " It's right, isn't it? :) I'm sure that you've already seen this in your real life. Whenever we start to do something, it's always hard and tough, however if we are brave enough to face all , the only thing we'll see in the end is the success and happiness. :)
for me and all you guys who are trying to learn english:
" English is not just something I know, it's something I can do "
It's not just only about knowledge, but it's also about our LOVE for English !
No pain, no gain is a very famous saying. At certain times this can be very true. If we are struggling with something this can help us battle through!
"English is not just something I know, it's something I can do." Where did this phrase come from Cong? I like it. You can definitely do English very well!
Thank you for sharing these sayings Cong. :)
Education is the proper way to promote compassion and tolerance in society. Compassion and peace of mind bring a sense of confidence that reduce stress and anxiety, whereas anger and hatred come from frustration and undermine our sense of trust. Because of ignorance, many of our problems are our own creation. Education, however, is the instrument that increases our ability to employ our own intelligence.
The Dalai Lama
An inspirational quote about the importance of education from the Dalai Lama.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honourable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
George Bernard Shaw.
It's OK to make mistakes! Every time we make a mistake we learn something.
