Be humble. Be teachable. The universe is bigger than your view of the universe. There’s always room for a new idea. Humility is necessary for growth

The goal of teaching should not be to help the students learn how to memorize and spit out information under academic pressure.

Did you know that it’s actually possible for you to say, “I don’t know enough about this to have an opinion”

Who you are becoming is more important than who you’ve been.

The world is filled with educated fools and uneducated genuises.

I would rather have questions that can’t be answered than answers that can’t be questioned.

Be humble. Be teachable. The universe is bigger than your view of the universe. There’s always room for a new idea. Humility is necessary for growth.

Direction is much more important than speed.

You are under no obligation to remain the same person you were a year ago, a month ago, or even a day ago. You are here to create yourself, continuously.

I have no responsibility to live up to what others expect of me. That’s their mistake, not my failing.

Nobody can make you happy until you’re happy with yourself first.

You don’t have to be perfect to be Loved.

Students don’t need a perfect teacher. Students need a happy teacher, who’s gonna make them excited to come to school and grow a love for learning.

Teach your children early what you learned late.

If a child can do advanced math, speak multiple languages, and get top grades in school, but can’t manage their emotions, practice conflict resolution, handle stress, none of that other stuff is really going to matter.

Life is too short to be so stressed.

Study the science of art. Study the art of Science. Develop your senses – especially learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.– Leonardo da Vinci (1452 – 1519)

The students won’t cheat in exams if they value their learning more than we value their grades.

One of the signs of intelligence is to be able to accept the facts without being offended.

Love yourself. But also analyze and be critical of how you think, act & behave. Self love without self awareness is useless. Be accountable.

Being wrong is not a bad thing like they teach you in school. It is an opportunity to learn something.

There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial and error.

Be a free thinker and don’t accept everything you hear as truth. Be critical and evaluate what you believe in.– Aristotle (384 – 322 BC)

Knowledge isn’t free. You have to pay attention.

Don’t judge a situation you’ve never been in.

Keep your big goals away from small minds.

The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid ones are full of confidence.- – Charles Bukowski

Did you know that it’s actually possible for you to say, “I have made a mistake, I will learn from it and make sure I don’t repeat it again”

No amount of belief can make something a fact. Nature doesn’t really care about your beliefs.

If our small minds, for some convenience, divide this universe, into parts — physics, biology, geology, astronomy, psychology, and so on — remember that nature does not know it!

If you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room.

Physics is just spicy math.

We need prisons that are more like schools, and schools that are less like prisons.

Never confuse education with intelligence. You can have a Ph.D. and still be an idiot.

Basically, the dumber you are, the smarter you think you are, and vice versa.

If you want to master something, teach it.

A listener needs a listener too.

Understand, don’t memorize.

Education isn’t something you can finish.– Isaac Asimov (1920 – 1992)

If you cannot explain something in simple terms, you don’t understand it.

Stupidity is knowing the truth, seeing the truth but still believing the lies. And that is more infectious than any other disease.

I was an ordinary person who studied hard. There’s no miracle people!

Your intelligence cannot be measured by a number. It is defined by your willingness to learn, solve problems and try new things. You are more than just a number. Develop your skills. Share your brilliant ideas. Your skills are more valuable than your grades.

Don’t be impressed by money, followers, degrees, and titles. Be impressed by kindness, integrity, humility, and generosity.

We must be careful not to believe things simply because we want them to be true. No one can fool you as easily as you can fool yourself.

Science is a culture of doubt. Religion is a culture of faith.

If it makes you happy it doesn’t have to make sense to others.

Be teachable! You’re not always right. Humility is necessary for growth!

When you are dead, you don’t know you are dead. It’s pain only for others. It’s the same thing when you are stupid.

If you find science boring, you’re learning it from a wrong teacher.

Don’t regret anything in life. If it’s good, it’s wonderful. If it’s bad, it’s experience! When you win, you win. When you lose, you learn.

The goal of teaching should not be to help the students learn how to memorize and spit out information under academic pressure. The purpose of teaching is to inspire the desire for learning in them and make them able to think, understand, and question.

If you want to master something, teach it. The more you teach, the better you learn. Teaching is a powerful tool to learning.

People need to understand that comparision isn’t motivation.

I’m smart enough to know that I’m dumb.

The ultimate test of your knowledge is your ability to convey it to another.

It doesn’t matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn’t matter how smart you are. If it doesn’t agree with experiment, it’s wrong. In that simple statement is the key to science.Cornell University Lecture, 1964

Learning is underrated. Grades are overrated.

School doesn’t test your intelligence, it tests your memory.

Be careful when you follow the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.

Never regret a day in your life; good days give happiness, bad days give experiences, worst days give lessons, and best days give memories.

Physics is like sex: sure, it may give some practical results, but that’s not why we do it.

Schrödinger’s Plates: They are both broken and not broken until you open the door.

The mind is sharper and keener in seclusion and uninterrupted solitude. No big laboratory is needed in which to think. Originality thrives in seclusion free of outside influences beating upon us to cripple the creative mind.– Nikola Tesla (1856 – 1943)

There’s no shame in not knowing things! The only shame is to pretend that we know everything.

Give your children logical explanations, not magical ones.

If the purpose of education is to score well on a test, we’ve lost sight of the real reason for learning.

Your value does not decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth.

A good teacher does not teach facts, he or she teaches enthusiasm, open-mindedness and values.– Gian-Carlo Rota

Never confuse education with intelligence, you can have a PhD and still be an idiot.

If the number 666 is considered evil, then technically, 25.8069758 is the root of all evil.

The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.– Joseph Campbell

In the sciences, the authority of thousands of opinions is not worth as much as one tiny spark of reason in an individual man.HAPPY BIRTHDAY Galileo Galilei!

Don’t just teach your students to read. Teach them to question what they read, what they study. Teach them to doubt. Teach them to think.

When one teaches, two learn.– Robert Heinlein

Strive for progress, not for perfection

Be teachable! You’re not always right. Humility is necessary for growth!

Stop feeling guilty for doing what’s best for you.

If you cannot explain something in simple terms, you don’t understand it. The best way to learn is to teach. The ultimate test of your knowledge is your ability to convey it to another.

Stupidity is knowing the truth, seeing the truth but still believing the lies.

Knowledge is power. It doesn’t matter how many resources you have. If you don’t know how to use them, it will never be enough.

Life is not about being better than someone else. It’s about being better than you used to be and discovering who you truly are.

A genius is someone who discovers that the stone that falls and the moon that doesn’t fall represent the same phenomena. The man who, by the age of 30, transformed the scientific world showing that the universe was mathematically knowable. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Isaac Newton!

The purpose of teaching is to inspire the desire for learning in them and make them able to think, understand, and question.
Never judge anyone’s path if you haven’t walked their journey.

Teach your children that not knowing something is not a bad thing, it is an opportunity to learn something.
Teach them that making mistake is not failure, it’s the first step to understanding.

There’s no shame in not knowing things! It’s Okay to say “I don’t know”
The only shame is to pretend that we know everything.

The problem is not people being uneducated.
The problem is that people are educated just enough to believe what they have been taught, and not educated enough to question anything from what they have been taught.

Don’t be impressed by money, followers, degrees, and titles.
Be impressed by kindness, integrity, humility, and generosity.

Don’t use your energy to worry!
Use your energy to believe, to create, to learn, to think, and to grow.

There are two rules in life:
1) Never give out all the information.

You cannot get educated by this self-propagating system in which people study to pass exams, and teach others to pass exams, but nobody knows anything.
You learn something by doing it yourself, by asking questions, by thinking, and by experimenting.

The mind is sharper and keener in seclusion and uninterrupted solitude.
No big laboratory is needed in which to think. Originality thrives in seclusion free of outside influences beating upon us to cripple the creative mind. Happy Birthday Nikola Tesla!

Understand. Don’t memorize.
Learn principles, not formulas.

To those who do not know Mathematics it is difficult to get across a real feeling as to the beauty, the deepest beauty, of nature.
If you want to learn about nature, to appreciate nature, it is necessary to understand the language that she speaks in.

The ultimate purpose of education is to change an empty mind into an open one.
If you wanna be a good teacher, teach open-mindedness, teach enthusiasm, inquisitiveness, heuristics, and values.

The real problem with the education system is that it tests memorization skills, not learning or intelligence.
The two major aspects that lack in modern education systems are education and system.

You don’t wanna work somehwere where you do not feel supported and validated, where you feel forced by a need to maintain your position in the organization, where you don’t have time and space to truly rest.
No one wants to trade in hours of their life to “earn” necessities.

The problem is not you being uneducated.
The problem is that you are educated just enough to believe what you have been taught, and not educated enough to question anything from what you have been taught.

What others think of you does not dictate your value. Do what interests you the most. Do what you get the most pleasure from.
Forget it all and develop your talents wherever they may lead. Why do you care what other people think?

Don’t regret anything in life. If it’s good, it’s wonderful. If it’s bad, it’s experience!
When you win, you win. When you lose, you learn.

It’s very important for you to realize that other people’s thoughts, words, actions, behaviour, and feelings are NOT your responsibility.
What you think about yourself is more important than what people think about you.

Education isn’t about the ability to remember and repeat, in which people study to pass exams, and teach others to pass exams, but nobody knows anything.
It is the ability to learn from experience, to think, solve problems, and use our knowledge to adapt to new situations.

Instead of making them memorize the facts, schools should teach the students how to understand, think, doubt, and question.
They should be made open to imagination and creativity.

No government has the right to:
• decide on the truth of scientific principles,
• determine the aesthetic values of artistic creations,
• limit the forms of literary or artistic expression,
• pronounce on the validity of historic, religious or philosophical doctrines.

Five great signs of intelligence:
• You’re not afraid or ashamed to find errors in your understanding of things.
• You take mistakes as lessons.
• You don’t get offended with accepting the facts.
• You are highly adaptable and very curious.
• You know what you don’t know.

The Feynman-technique of learning:

Pick a topic you wanna understand and start studying it
Pretend to teach the topic to a classroom
Go back to the books when you get stuck
Simplify and use analogies!
• If you wanna master something, teach it.

Knowledge is having the right answers.
Intelligence is asking the right questions.
Wisdom is knowing when to ask the right questions.

SCIENCE:
If you don’t make mistakes, you’re doing it wrong.
If you don’t correct those mistakes, you’re doing it really wrong.
If you can’t accept that you’re mistaken, you’re not doing it at all.

People need to understand that:
• It’s Okay to fail,
• It’s Okay to make mistakes,
• It’s Okay to admit that you are wrong.
• It’s Okay to not have an opinion about something
• It’s Okay to say “I don’t know”

Why is Failure important?
• Failure is an incredible learning experience.
• It teaches you humility and growth.
• It is the first step to understanding.
• It makes you realize the importance of success.
• It gives you a sense of direction.
• It gets rid of Fear.

Don’t just teach your students to memorize and repeat information

Teach them to question what they read, what they study and why.
Teach them to doubt.
Teach them to think.
Teach them how to learn from their mistakes.
Teach them how to teach others.

• Do what interests you the most.
• Spend time with nature.
• Ask questions.
• Never stop learning.
• Don’t pay attention to what others think of you.
• Read everyday.
• Study hard.
• Teach others what you know.
• Make mistakes and learn.
• It’s Okay to not know things!

Things that Schools should teach:
• Being wrong is not a bad thing.
• It’s Okay to question what you have been taught.
• Grades aren’t as valuable as skills.
• Understanding is more important than memorization.
• Making mistakes is Okay. Learn from your mistakes.

• What others think of you is none of your business.
• It’s OK not to have all the answers.
• Experiment, Fail, Learn and Repeat.
• Knowledge comes from experience.
• Imagination is important.
• Stay curious.

Illusion of knowledge is more dangerous than ignorance:
It’s Okay to say “I don’t know” and admit that you don’t know it.
However, it’s shameful to pretend that you know everything.

Maxwell’s equations didn’t just change the world. They opened up a new one. The most significant event of the 1th century is Maxwell’s discovery of the laws of electrodynamics.
1)∇.D = ρ
2)∇.B = 0
3)∇xE = -∂B/∂t
4)∇xH = J +∂D/∂t
Happy Birthday James Clerk Maxwell.

Teach your students
• to doubt,
• to think,
• to communicate,
• to question,
• to make mistakes,
• to learn from their mistakes, and most importantly
• have fun in their learning.

FIVE Productivity FEYNMAN- strategies:
• Stop trying to know-it-all.
• Don’t worry about what others are thinking.
• Don’t think about what you want to be, but what you want to do.
• Have a sense of humor and talk honestly.
• Teach others what you know.

What does school really teach children:
• Truth comes from authority.
• Intelligence is the ability to remember and repeat.
• Accurate memory and repetitions are rewarded.
• Non-compliance is punished.
• Conform: Intellectually and socially.

• Stupidity:
You think you know everything, without questioning.
• Intelligence:
You question everything you think you know.

Modern education:
Creating people who are smart enough to accurately repeat what they are told and follow the orders.
And dumb enough to think this makes them smarter than everyone else.

There’s a huge difference between:
• education and intelligence
• knowledge and information
• understanding and memorization
• learning and studying
• ignorance and stupidity
