„Almost anybody can learn to think or believe or know, but not a single human being can be taught to feel“

—  E.E. Cummings American poet 1894 - 1962
Context: Almost anybody can learn to think or believe or know, but not a single human being can be taught to feel … the moment you feel, you're nobody-but-yourself. To be nobody-but-yourself — in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else — means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.

„Personally, I am always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught,“

—  Winston S. Churchill Prime Minister of the United Kingdom 1874 - 1965
Context: Personally, I am always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught, but I shall not attempt to foreshadow the proposals which will be brought before the House tomorrow.

„You can only learn to be a better writer by actually writing.“

—  Doris Lessing British novelist, poet, playwright, librettist, biographer and short story writer 1919 - 2013
Context: You can only learn to be a better writer by actually writing. I don't know much about creative writing programs. But they're not telling the truth if they don't teach, one, that writing is hard work and, two, that you have to give up a great deal of life, your personal life, to be a writer. Interview with Herbert Mitgang, "Mrs. Lessing Addresses Some of Life's Puzzles," The New York Times (22 April 1984)
