The difference between school and life?

In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test.

In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson.

- Tom Bodett


  1. Aren't sports a blend of both?

    You practice skill sets (homework). Then you apply those skills in games (tests). Then you evaluate the game to learn what to improve upon (lesson). Then repeat attempting to get better each time.

  2. I couldn't have said that any better, and actually thought the same thing when I read the quote.
