There is no end to learning

India
August 2, 2012 7:41am CST
Though I have taught in colleges for more than 4 decades, I say there is no end to the process of learning; I am still a learner. Remember when you talk, you are only repeating the same what you might already know; but If you listen to others, you may learn something new from others. [b]I think I am still a student. What about you? Please comment on this and share your opinion.[/b] Thanks in advance. Prof. Bhuwan August 2nd 2012.

You are very right dear professor. We all are still learning. Scientist Newton said like this, "I am at the bank of ocean of knowledge, but I have no knowledge about the vast water in front of me". This is called politeness of a scientist. So you are very right. Have a very nice day.

Oh, yes. I am curious about a lot of things and so I research a lot. Also, as a writer, I have to study things so that I know what I'm writing about. I like to listen to others tell of things they know about, too. Learning should be a life long experience.

Research is must in the learning process, we must keep ourselves updated by reading books, magazines and internet searching.

Absolutely right,professor.Knowledge is endless.We have taken only one or two drops from it.Again you are right when you say we don't talk about anything new or unknown.We always talk about something that has already been known or discovered earlier.But when we listen to what someone is saying,we may be learning something that is unknown to us.It is another matter that the one who is talking to us has also learned it from someone else.

you are absolute right learning is endless, we always learn time to time. we thanks to our teachers or other person who teaches us to learn from the learning we can get from them. learning is a process of communicating to other people.

Even if we are a good educator, we crave for more knowledge to gain. Life is not perfect to know everything. There are some set backs in some instances.

We carry on learning through the whole of our lives, and I do think that this is something that a lot of people tend to forget about. They think that the only time that they're learning is when they are actually in school/college/university and that their education is over once they leave these places. Actually, we learn most of our things about life when we are out in the real world, so this is something that we should remember. Being able to make the most of the things that are given to us is a real skill, and something that we should be proud of if we're able to do so.

I agree with you, what we say may be something we never knew and we learned. But whether by learning something new and we create a new word, Whether it be in a position to say today? Yes, I am a student, is busy-busy to deepen knowledge. But like what you say bproses learning never stops because every second, minute, hour, and so on, we definitely got a learning if we think.

We must share our latest knowledge with others, so that others are benefited too.

Attending conferences - They are in a postgrad course
There is so much to learn as science and other branches of knowledge continue to expand and evolve. Life is fruitful and it is short. So, better get a book and enjoy or attend something that could teach us something new and emerge to make a difference

I do agree with you, sir. I still remember what my teacher told us that we'll never stop learning. We are learning everyday. When we read, we get new information. When we watch TV, we also get new information and when we listen to other people like you have mentioned, we get new information. It's good to deal with other people because we'll learn from each other. I guess learning will take place forever.

yes i agree with you. there is no end to learning, so good, in fact, i think the society is a big school. the society is improving and if we don't learn something new, we will lose our advantage. and after we graduate from school, we need to learn something to keep our brain good. it is so important. so we should learn for a long time and never stop
