Education has often been a nightmare and bitter experience for innumerable students on account of having to cope with endless homework examinations and a lot more. However looking back at the past, has anyone ever regretted for having been educated?
A group of travelers was about to start walking across a desert when a voice was heard from above, instructing them to collect as many as pebbles as they could and carry them during the journey, without explaining why. Obviously, bewildered and filled with loathing, the travelers compiled with the instructions, some carrying a huge number of pebbles, others less. When they reached the destination, they opened their bags and found that all the pebbles they collected turned into diamonds. They were glad, and also sorry – glad that they had taken along at least some pebbles, and sorry that they had not taken more. This explains the importance of education..
This process of education is challenging and demanding. But soon enough you come to realize that what seemed worthless turns into something priceless, and that bitter roots yield sweet fruits in terms of what life has in store for you. Thus education is a great tool to help you move from where you are to arrive at where you want to be.
When we perceive education only as an option rather than a means to prepare for life, it is natural that you tend to become rather lethargic. Whereas if you take education as a way of life, we will never grow tired of learning something new every step of the way. The moment we stop learning, you stop growing.
Plato says “Do not train children to learning by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each”.
