Life's Little Lessons

Take an interest in aphorisms. Educate yourself – one aphorism, one life's little lesson at a time. Learn from the wisdom of the sages, the gurus, the philosophers and all the wise men and women who had lived before us. All their learnings and teachings are recorded and passed down as aphorisms.

Never stop learning. Develop a passion for learning and you will never cease to grow. Learning is an indispensable investment required for success. Sometimes we learn lessons are hard way, if we don't learn from the examples of others before us.
