A Quote by Michael Carroll on buddhism, suffering, work, and learning

The daily grind, the successes and failures, the hard work and stress, all gradually unfold as a profound teaching. And central to that teaching was the realization that the spiritual path is nothing other than living our very life, fully and confidently, in the immediate moment - and that nothing can be excluded, especially not our jobs.

A Quote by Dalai Lama on buddhism, practice, faith, learning, and our daily lives

In Buddhism, both learning and practice are extremely important, and they must go hand in hand. Without knowledge, just to rely on faith, faith, and more faith is good but not sufficient. So the intellectual part must definitely be present. At the same time, strictly intellectual development without faith and practice, is also of no use. It is necessary to combine knowledge born from study with sincere practice in our daily lives. These two must go together.

A Quote by Steven E. Baxter on coincidences, why, learning, growth, and the universe

Never say, "Wow, what a coincidence!"  There are no coincidences.  Everything happens for a reason.  Everything that happens to you in life is a lesson.  If you choose to learn the lesson, you move on to the next lesson.  If you choose not to learn, you will repeat the lesson as many times as it takes to learn.

A Quote by Steven E. Baxter on life, game, learning, growth, and negativity

LIfe is a kind of game.  Once you realize this, you can do lots of things, even unpleasant things, for the sake of learning and growth--without being encumbered by the weight of negativity.

A Quote by Shantideva on bodhisattva, learning, buddhism, wisdom, and clarity

Those who have no mental vigilance,
Though they may hear the teachings, ponder them or meditate,
With minds like water seeping from a leaking jug,
Their learning will not settle in their memories.
