“Don’t chase for the high grades. Studying is not a race. It doesn’t mean that you failed, you learned nothing. Perhaps, you lax so much or you over did it. Don’t aim to have 99 or 75 or anything in between. Dream to learn. Because numbers will never measure you as a whole person.”, Senator Miriam Santiago
Never study to be successful, study for self-efficiency. Don’t run behind success. Follow behind excellence, success will come all way behind you. ~ Three Idiots Movie
I am in competition with no one. I have no desire to play the game of being better that anyone. I am simply trying to be better person than I was yesterday.

Get over the idea that only children should spend their time in study. Be a student so long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life. ~Henry L. Doherty
Children have to be educated, but they have also to be left to educate themselves. ~Abbé Dimnet, Art of Thinking, 1928
The ink of the scholar is more sacred than the blood of the martyr. ~Mohammed
We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself. ~Lloyd Alexander

Self-test is the key to effective learning. It’s only when you recall facts from your memory that you make strong memories. It’s not a waste of time to struggle to remember. The more effort you put into your learning, the more effective it becomes.
Ability to imagine and curiosity is what needed to spark true intelligence and ability to learn.The thought of putting highlighter down and learn the materials will serve no purpose as you wouldn’t stop highlighting everything because all the material was so foreign to you. But if you will figure something out and imagine things, then, you showed interest and motivated to learn.
Understand and memorize. The process of summarizing and finding connections, then taking notes or discussing about the topic, is essential to “understanding” material. Memorization is an inefficient way to learn without understanding. Instead of repeatedly scanning the same information for minimal benefit, invest your time learning in creating connections with the information you are learning. Not only is it a more natural way to learn, it isn’t painfully boring like most memorization task are. Learning does not occur until able to understand information then apply what we have learned to a new situation.
