Aristotle ones said that “Educating the mind without educating heart is no education at all”. School is our first contact with the world, a period of joy, health competition, fearing, adjustment sharing and love.
Learning is not a process limited to school and college only, nor does it end with the conclusion of one’s school carees. It is indeed a lifelong process. Education means total transformation of a child and to adaptation of various methods suiting the dynamics of changing world in order to achieve common goals and objectives.
Hard work is the key to success. "The heights of great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but, they, while their companies slept, were toileting upward in the night”. They were burning midnight oil. Life is not static but dynamic. It has a purpose for the aim of education, as a process in learning is to live together as civilized and mutually supportive citizens. And the human mind is like a parachute, which works only when it is open. And this social dimension of the development of personality is vital and mandatory.
Yesterday is a dream it’s a part of history, which cannot be changed. Tomorrow is but a vision. Leave it to God. But today is yours. And so make the best of it. Remember that every today well is what makes a difference in one’s life. And it is the key to success too. May God bless you.
