Can there be a love which does not make demands on its object?
He who remembers from day to day what he has yet to learn, and from month to month what he has learned already, may be said to have a love of learning.
The palest ink is better than the most retentive memory.
A man who has committed a mistake and doesn't correct it, is committing another mistake.

The superior man will watch over himself when he is alone. He examines his heart that there may be nothing wrong there, and that he may have no cause of dissatisfaction with himself.
Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance.
When you know a thing, to hold that you know it; and when you do not know a thing, to allow that you do not know it; this is knowledge
Real knowledge is to know the extent of ones ignorance.
The essence of knowledge is, having it, to apply it; not having it, to confess your ignorance.
