125 motivational quotes about learning (for more inspiration and perseverance)

by Tim Reichel

If there is one constant in a successful life, it is learning. Starting as a toddler, through school, at university and later at work: Without constant learning we cannot make progress in life. Even in retirement, training our cognitive abilities can provide new insights and ensure an extended retirement age with good mental fitness.

Despite all these advantages, we often find it difficult to learn. It's tedious and rarely as fun as it should. Sometimes it frustrates us, and often we don't even do it voluntarily. At this point I even lean a little further out of the window and claim: Most people not only don't like learning - they even hate it at times.

And that's a shame. It's a real shame.

For this reason, I have collected some motivation to learn for you in this article. Overall I have 125 quotes about learning compiled for you and would like to make your current (or future learning process) easier with this collection. The following study quotes will keep you motivated and show you how meaningful and precious your efforts will be.

After a little bit of quotation, it learns to be much more focused and determined.
