6 Handwritten Quotes about Being a Student of Life

Letting life be a classroom opens a lot of doors, makes light out of the darkness, mends a broken heart, and plants meaning where others harvest nothing but suffering. Instead of being a victim, being a student of life lets you live more, love deeper, give & receive easier. Read these quotes if you want that.

On Being a Student of Life, for the Sake of More LIFE

1. Let's be better with the unknown.

We must learn to be better with the unknown / than we are with the known that suffocates.

We must learn to be better with the unknown / than we are with the known that suffocates.

May our beliefs liberate us, not confine or divide us.

2. Everything is teaching, if you're listening.

The lone flower, the child’s laughter, the nature of water — they are my teachers.

3. Darkness, too, is a teacher.

What we must realize, if we are to heal, is that darkness is a teacher of light.

“You can't rush your healing. Darkness has its teachings.” - Trevor Hall

4. We are the audience of the universe, after all.

I want to write about, read about, and talk about trusting the unknown. It’s most of life. It is, so to speak, the heart of the universe that we do know. Being a student of life, first and foremost, would, I think, liberate us to live better in most ways.

How splendid, to be the audience of the universe. 

5. Serendipity is possible because there is a mystery to life — and mystery, so it seems, can be sweet.

 Serendipity is possible because there is a mystery to life — and mystery, so it seems, can be sweet.

One of my favorite kinds of serendipity is grace where I least expected it.

Grace meets us as the crossroads of what we think we know and what we are sure is a mystery.

6. Student of life itself: this is our ultimate role.

I want to write about, read about, and talk about trusting the unknown. It’s most of life. It is, so to speak, the heart of the universe that we do know. Being a student of life, first and foremost, would, I think, liberate us to live better in most ways.

Do not long forget your ultimate role here: Student.
