Nobody Can Teach You as Well as You Can Teach Yourself.
Merely Listening to Your Teachers and Completing Their Assignments is Never Enough.
Not Everything You Are Assigned to Read or Asked to Do Is Equally Important.
Grades Are Just Subjective Opinions.
Making Mistakes (and Occasionally Appearing Foolish) Is the Price You Pay for Learning and Improving.
The Point of a Question Is to Get You to Think - Not Simply to Answer It.
You're In School to Learn to Think for Yourself, Not to Repeat What Your Textbooks and Teachers Tell You.
If You're Doing It for the Grades or for the Approval of Others, You're Missing the Satisfaction of the Process and Putting Your Self-Esteem at the Mercy of Things Outside Your Control.
How Well You Do in School Reflects Your Attitude and Your Method, Not Your Ability.
Few Things Are as Potentially Difficult, Frustrating, or Frightening as Genuine Learning, Yet Nothing Is So Empowering.
Subjects Do Not Always Seem Interesting or Relevant, but Being Actively Engaged in Learning Them is Better than Being Passively Bored and Not Learning Them.
School Is a Game, but It's a Very Important Game.
