Bildung ist nicht die Vorbereitung für's Leben, Bildung ist Leben.
Arriving at one goal is the starting point to another.
Education, therefore, is a process of living and not a preparation for future living.
Failure is instructive. The person who really thinks learns quite as much from his failures as from his successes.
Just as a flower which seems beautiful and has color but no perfume, so are the fruitless words of the man who speaks them but does them not.
