Michael O’Brien

Frank Vogel

Mitch Albom
I tend to approach things from a physics framework. And physics teaches you to reason from first principles rather than by analogy.
Elon Musk
You sit at the board and suddenly your heart leaps. Your hand trembles to pick up the piece and move it. But what chess teaches you is that you must sit there calmly and think about whether it’s really a good idea and whether there are other, better ideas.
Stanley Kubrick
Being a journalist is good if you want to write books: it teaches you to get beyond the blank screen. My books have been described as froth, but there’s scope to be witty and ironic about everything in life.
Sophie Kinsella
My brother, a businessman, is the main cook in his home and my sister teaches cookery. Good food and good music were the mainstays of my childhood.
Ainsley Harriott
‘Twin Peaks’ was huge. I mean, it changed television; it was a huge hit, and it only went a season and a half. So that teaches you immediately that you just enjoy it for the time that you do it.
Madchen Amick
Covid-19 teaches us that we are all global citizens connected by a single virus that recognises none of our natural or man-made diversity: not the colour of our skin, nor our passports, or the gods we worship.
Abiy Ahmed
One of my brothers teaches karate at our gym and also handles the administrative side of the gym. My other brother is a fighter like me and teaches a class at the gym. So my brothers are always at the gym together training.

The Holy Ghost brings back memories of what God has taught us. And one of the ways God teaches us is with his blessings; and so, if we choose to exercise faith, the Holy Ghost will bring God’s kindnesses to our remembrance.
Henry B. Eyring
Experience teaches us that it is much easier to prevent an enemy from posting themselves than it is to dislodge them after they have got possession.

Mary Beard
History teaches us that men and nations behave wisely once they have exhausted all other alternatives.
Abba Eban
Can you imagine he went to rest at the age of 36, and 30 years after he’s still coming out with music for your listening pleasure? Not only for your dancing pleasure, but for learning at the same time. Because Bob Marley music teaches.
Rita Marley
Injury in general teaches you to appreciate every moment. I’ve had my share of injuries throughout my career. It’s humbling. It gives you perspective. No matter how many times I’ve been hurt, I’ve learned from that injury and come back even more humble.
Troy Polamalu
My understanding of the Scriptures has been made simple by the person of Christ. Christ teaches that God is love.
Customers are your best teachers. Learning about your customer’s beliefs, values, and priorities teaches you which selling points you should emphasize.
Mark Goulston
I think what a life in science really teaches you is the vastness of our ignorance.
David Eagleman
I loved being poor, because it teaches you humility.
Jabari Parker
I’d really like to be able to whistle with two fingers. Is this a biological thing? Is it to do with the teeth? Who teaches people to do this? How do I learn?
James Veitch
In Turkey, you’re not allowed to be left alone in the hospital. The nurse teaches the family how to do things, and somebody is always there with the patient.
Mehmet Oz
‘Shake It Up’ definitely teaches kids about the importance of reaching for your dreams and setting high goals. It also teaches great lessons about friendship and family.
Football is a great deal like life in that it teaches that work, sacrifice, perseverance, competitive drive, selflessness and respect for authority is the price that each and every one of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.
Vince Lombardi
As a researcher, every once in a while you encounter something a little disconcerting. And this is something that changes your understanding of the world around you, and teaches you that you’re very wrong about something that you really believed firmly in.
Sendhil Mullainathan
Every film, regardless of being a success or a failure or anything in between, teaches you something. You might not sometimes realise what it taught you, but down the line, there would be a lesson in it.
Prithviraj Sukumaran
Music is one of the most essential things in life. It is what teaches us.
Ziggy Marley
Everyone would like to believe that anyone possibly exposed to a serious contagious disease would comply with self-quarantine requirements. But history teaches a different lesson.
Sharyl Attkisson
Sport is and should remain a great school of life that supports young people in their personal development. It teaches respect for others and also for oneself.
Richard Attias
I had always wanted to belong, and I had been thinking that this was going to get solved when I had money, and instead, I had no idea how I wanted to live my life. And no one teaches you what to do after you achieve financial independence. So I had to confront that.
Daniel Ek
Make sure you like, comment and share other people’s items. That teaches Facebook what kinds of things you like to see in your feed.
Robert Scoble
I grew up in the Bronx. The Bronx teaches you to survive. It’s like, ‘Bring it on!’
Wesley Snipes
At best the family teaches the finest things human beings can learn from one another generosity and love. But it is also, all too often, where we learn nasty things like hate, rage and shame.
Barbara Ehrenreich
Time as he grows old teaches all things.
Every movie I make teaches me something. That’s why I keep making them.
Clint Eastwood
We’re built to need a thing. I do think everyone has god. It’s just, who’s god for you? Is it god in the sky? Is it Shantel who teaches hot yoga Thursday mornings? Is it the person you’re in a relationship with? I hope not.
Ramy Youssef
Every theory of love, from Plato down, teaches that each individual loves in the other sex what he lacks in himself.
G. Stanley Hall

Demian Maia
The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.

It is the child’s understanding that teaches the adults the way of the future. They’re still doing it today with modern technology.
Michael Morpurgo
I think it is important for young people to see other young people on television doing something positive with their life, making positive changes and growing. I don’t think there is enough of that on TV. I mean, we’ve got ‘Jersey Shore,’ and I don’t know what that teaches young kids.
Johnny Weir
No one teaches you how to think about money in medical school or residency. Yet, from the moment you start practicing, you must think about it. You must consider what is covered for a patient and what is not.
Atul Gawande
Nothing will teach you more about perceived value than taking something with literally no value and selling it in the auction format. It teaches you the beauty and power of presentation, and how you can make magic out of nothing.
Sophia Amoruso
I wish I had played team sports. I think every kid should. Teamwork builds character – teaches people about leadership and cooperation.
Mo Rocca
I moved frequently because my dad was in the army, so I was always new in school. I think if you’ve ever done that, you know what it means to not matter in a room. I think it’s a good experience for everyone to have, to feel like they’re not noticed, because it teaches you to be empathetic.
Julianne Moore
I’m interested in doing anything that teaches me something.
Gord Downie
We need to have a course in school that teaches about ecology and gastronomy. I could imagine that all children could eat at school for free and that the cafeteria would become part of the school’s curriculum.
Alice Waters
Pain adds rest unto pleasure, and teaches the luxury of health.
Martin Farquhar Tupper

Abdurrahman Wahid
Art teaches nothing, except the significance of life.
Michael Korda
When we were in school, we were told that Stalin was a madman who got control of Europe, which teaches you nothing.

A rattlesnake that doesn’t bite teaches you nothing.
Jessamyn West
I have become a subscriber for ‘Business Week.’ It teaches me a lot about business, and I have really started to get into it. I’m interested in business and learning about how everything works.
Marko Jaric
Writing for Mills and Boon taught me a lot of discipline. You have to produce books in a short time scale and four a year, and it teaches you a lot.
Penny Jordan
A storytelling device teaches. I hate to say it that way, because kids tune out. I don’t teach on purpose, but I’m glad that it happens sometimes.

Gisele Bundchen
In the end, religion teaches us to value truth, justice and freedom.

Wentworth Miller
I don’t like to be negative about math because it really teaches you a lot of great things. You kind of use math every day.
Madison Davenport
Sports teaches you to understand the meaning of a team. You need to be able to work with everybody; you don’t have to be their best friend. You can experience the fun of competition and driving toward a common goal without pushing to bond in some major way with each individual on a project.
Kathleen Kennedy
A Harvard Medical School study has determined that rectal thermometers are still the best way to tell a baby’s temperature. Plus, it really teaches the baby who’s boss.
Tina Fey
That’s what religion teaches: that life is a temporary thing which is going to dissolve one day.
Leila Aboulela
The reason why I believe faith is important for a person is that it teaches you to trust.
Ann Reinking
Zen teaches that once we can open up to the inevitability of our demise, we can begin to transform that situation and lighten up about it.

I absolutely love working with David Boreanaz, and Charisma Carpenter I completely adore – she teaches me to dance.
J. August Richards
India is one of the richest civilizations in the world, and we Indians are known for our love of our soil! But somewhere on our way to modernisation, we have been losing the very essence and spirit that we should be proud of – that is, our culture that teaches us to love and respect nature and nurture it.
Playing sports is great when you’re young. It teaches you how to focus, how to direct your energy, how not to think about a million other things that are going on.
Elsa Hosk
Ballet teaches you how to hold yourself.
Joseph Altuzarra
The opportunity to create wealth in foreign banks exists only in the investment banking space. Working in a local company teaches you to think long term.
Ravi Subramanian
I don’t like the idea of things being off-limits to kids – like a fancy sitting room where they can’t touch anything. I own vintage pottery cups, and I let my girls hold them. It teaches them to treat objects with respect.
Debi Mazar
I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise, since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness and the willingness to remain vulnerable.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
America has always been a land of freedom that teaches you that the sky is the limit that you will succeed or you will fail based upon your ability and your effort. And every phrase of the sentence that I just uttered has been smothered in a soft pillow of entitlement, victimhood and security.
Will Cain
But time growing old teaches all things.
The worst education which teaches self-denial, is better than the best which teaches everything else, and not that.
John Sterling
Nature teaches us that tens of billions of light years may have passed, and life in all of its expressions has always been subjected to an incredible combination of matter and radiation.
Fidel Castro
If the history of the past fifty years teaches us anything, it is that peace does not follow disarmament – disarmament follows peace.

Haley Joel Osment
The Scoutmaster teaches boys to play the game by doing so himself.
Robert Baden-Powell
The Company of Wolves is about how society teaches young women to look at themselves, and what to be afraid of. It’s about a girl learning that the world of sensuality and the unknown is not to be feared, that it’s worth getting your teeth into.
Neil Jordan
The Spirit of the Holy Ghost is the teacher in the temple. He teaches principles of eternal significance. It is during these instructions that we see the relationship between the earthly and the eternal. We must remember that the Spirit teaches only those who are teachable.
L. Lionel Kendrick
Value your freedom or you will lose it, teaches history. ‘Don’t bother us with politics’, respond those who don’t want to learn.
Richard Stallman
The spirit of the Olympic movement is great for young people because it teaches them about the training and discipline required to compete. Even if they don’t make the teams, they can rededicate their lives to the art of sport, discipline, and physical fitness.
Richard M. Daley
Religion teaches you to be satisfied with nonanswers. It’s a sort of crime against childhood.
Richard Dawkins
I don’t really think of past experiences as ‘mistakes’ – I think everything brings us where we need to go and teaches us what we need to learn. I’m grateful for all my wobbles because I wouldn’t be here without them.
Rebecca Serle
Growing up with Koli boys is a different experience. It teaches you survival.
Vikrant Massey
As someone who writes and teaches YA fiction, I spend a lot of time trying to define its character and readership, and I don’t think I’m alone – genres are all about boundary drawing, and the YA genre is, in a lot of ways, about carving out boundaries around adolescence, a space for teenagers to do teenage things.
Robin Wasserman
The advice I give is that, tempting as it is, getting the training you can get from law firm experience is really invaluable. It teaches you not just what you know but what you don’t.
Belinda Johnson
Wisdom does not show itself so much in precept as in life – in firmness of mind and a mastery of appetite. It teaches us to do as well as to talk; and to make our words and actions all of a color.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Egoic consciousness is the one we all normally operate with, until we are told there is something else! Every culture teaches egoic consciousness in different ways. At that level it is all about me, my preferences, my choices, my needs, my desires and me and my group as the central reference point.
Richard Rohr
History teaches that the overwhelming majority of elected officials follow movement builders outside government when it comes to the new and risky… Once you recognize it, demand it and reward it, it will happen.
Eric Schneiderman
Scandinavia is boring. People living there apparently have little to do. And as European history teaches, when there is nothing much to do, you may as well amuse yourself by attacking the Jews.
Elliott Abrams
A good business book teaches simple truths.
Ken Blanchard
In the film ‘PK’, questions have been raised about the theatrics surrounding religion, but it is not limited to a particular faith. In the end, the film teaches us, every religion says love one another and trust one another.
Ravish Kumar
Animals are everything to me. I always say, ‘Who rescued who?’ with my horse Belle. She is my greatest teacher. She teaches me to be grounded, present, and in the moment, which I feel is key to happiness. My panic attacks become nonexistent when spending time with my animals, especially out in nature.
Beth Behrs
I think my best teacher and my best study was theater in general. It taught me a lot of patience and a lot of hard work, and I think that theater teaches you that you’ve got to know your stuff because you only get one chance.
Chelsea Kane
Drawing teaches you to look at things properly and to understand form and structure.
Michael Foreman
What Western society teaches us is that if you get enough money, power, and beautiful people to have sex with, that’s going to bring you happiness. That’s what every commercial, every magazine, music, movie teaches us. That’s a fallacy.
Adam Yauch
History teaches me that the dollar rules and whoever writes history writes it however they want.
Danielle Colby
Buddhism teaches you to embrace change.
Koo Stark
My first job at General Motors was as a quality inspector on the assembly line. I was checking fits between hoods and fenders. I had a little scale and clipboard. At one point, I was probably examining 60 jobs an hour during an eight-hour shift. A job like that teaches you to value all the people who do a job like that.
Mary Barra
Writing teaches writing.
James McBride
You can score goals at youth level but men’s football teaches you things. It teaches you real football and you realise that this game is sink or swim.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin
There are so many steps you have to go through to reach a high level, so you’re kind of building your own, I would say, mountain. You have to go piece by piece by piece. When you’re young and really ambitious, you want to jump right up. It kind of teaches you a lesson, I would say.
Victoria Azarenka
When one teaches, two learn.
Robert Half
If you stick to what the Bible teaches, then you have everything you need: honesty, openness, friendliness, respect, tolerance, and much more, which is often lost nowadays.
Niko Kovac
I’ve studied a technique called the Sanford Miesner technique, that teaches you how to focus. It’s mainly about daydreaming. And the technique’s really about imaginary circumstances. Using your imagination to sort of daydream about stuff. It makes you emotional in a scene.
Sam Rockwell
If a nonartist teaches a subject called art, it is nonart.
Ruth Asawa
This is the lesson that history teaches: repetition.
Gertrude Stein
One of the great lessons the fall of the leaf teaches, is this: do your work well and then be ready to depart when God shall call.
Tryon Edwards
Through improvisation, jazz teaches you about yourself. And through swing, it teaches you that other people are individuals too. It teaches you how to coordinate with them.
Wynton Marsalis
I’m part of a speech therapy programme called the McGuire Programme. It teaches you a new way to breathe, a new way to speak, a brand new way of tackling the mind-sets that come with having a speech impediment. Mainly, it teaches you how to slow things down, and that has really helped me.
Gareth Gates
I found out that many of our Catholics simply don’t know what the church teaches, and why, on a lot of issues, and therefore are saying things that they think are okay. They simply don’t know.
Roger Mahony
It’s like ‘Pay It Forward.’ Everyone has seen that movie. If someone teaches you something that helps you in your life, why not pass it along and help the next person?
Kyle Lowry
Our school not only makes you an actor, it makes you understand who you actually are as well… it gives you discipline and punctuality. It also teaches you a way of life.
Anupam Kher
High office teaches decision making, not substance. It consumes intellectual capital; it does not create it. Most high officials leave office with the perceptions and insights with which they entered; they learn how to make decisions but not what decisions to make.
Henry Kissinger
I write the occasional poem. I think my dabbling in poetry makes me better at screenplays. Poetry teaches the value of condensing, the importance of talking in a few words.
Kamal Haasan
Live news teaches you some incredibly strong lessons: that every day is a new day, and it’s never too late to fix something.
Nancy Dubuc
The Tao teaches us to let go of things. Use the 80/20 rule. If you take all your clothes, you’ll find out that you only wear 20 percent of them. Take what you have and don’t use and circulate it. Give stuff to people who truly need it. After all, we come into this world with nothing; we leave this world with nothing.
Wayne Dyer
I love yoga because it allows me to slow down and experience how good it feels to be in relationship to my body. It teaches me patience, acceptance, and how to receive.
Mandy Ingber
You know sit with your arm around a little kid and read. It not only teaches them to read but it keeps the family strong.
Barbara Bush
The Church is the safe place to be. I can safely believe everything the Church teaches. It will not harm me, and in fact it will equip me to grow and grow and have a better and better ability to experience that direct presence.
Frederica Mathewes-Green
But we had a fantastic coach, Simon Clifford, who runs a British football youth game which teaches Brazilian techniques – which is what we wanted to incorporate into the film. And some of those things we eventually got in.
Parminder Nagra
It is necessary to bear in mind that Scripture only teaches the chief points of those true principles which lead to the true perfection of man, and only demands in general terms faith in them.
I think technical people now should learn literature, because literature teaches you a great deal about how – the depths and variety of human imagination.
Ellen Ullman
When you have a stroke, it changes you… It really teaches you, like, you have to live in the moment.
Kim Zolciak-Biermann
Every minute I spend near Ancelotti I am breathing in football. He likes to really be immersed in football. As a former player and as a coach who knows our needs, it is a privilege to work with him and share time with him because he teaches us a lot.
Logic teaches rules for presentation, not thinking.
Mason Cooley
More enduringly than any other sport, wrestling teaches self-control and pride. Some have wrestled without great skill – none have wrestled without pride.
Dan Gable
I cannot hate, because my Bible teaches me not to hate.
Anthony Ray Hinton
I’m half Hawaiian and the haka is a very sacred thing, something your family teaches you – my father taught me.
Jason Momoa
If war teaches you anything, it is an appreciation of being alive.
Bruce Grobbelaar
My music fights against the system that teaches to live and die.
Bob Marley
What matters is what you do. And this runs counter to what a lot of the culture teaches people about putting feelings first. By contrast, resilient people focus not on what they intend, but on what they achieve.
Eric Greitens
We live in a technology-driven world so I want to ensure our educational system teaches in a technology-driven way.
Kay Ivey
Before all masters, necessity is the one most listened to, and who teaches the best.

My wife and I – her more than me – are really strong Christians. Her whole life revolves around studying the Bible, Bible study, after-school Bible class she does for little kids on Wednesdays, teaches Sunday school.
Ben Howland
The one thing a lifetime in the newspaper business teaches you is pace – you spend all your time trying to make sure that the reader’s going to finish what you’re writing.
Carl Hiaasen
A critic is a legless man who teaches running.
Channing Pollock
My mother taught me that the universe guides, teaches, and offers up gifts… even when bad things happen.
John Wozniak
By doing something repeatedly, one’s mind becomes sharper. It teaches you dedication.
Shriya Saran
Chess helps you to concentrate, improve your logic. It teaches you to play by the rules and take responsibility for your actions, how to problem solve in an uncertain environment.
Garry Kasparov
As a biblical inerrantist, I believe that what the Bible teaches is true and bow to the text, including its teaching about the Flood and its universality.
William A. Dembski
I hold that the mark of a genuine idea is that its possibility can be proved, either a priori by conceiving its cause or reason, or a posteriori when experience teaches us that it is in fact in nature.
Gottfried Leibniz
Modeling teaches you to be completely conscious of the camera. Acting is being totally unconscious of it.
Phoebe Cates
I like the idea of teaching kids how to lose. That’s a really important lesson in life. I don’t like the idea of doing leadline where everyone gets a blue ribbon. I think it’s unrealistic for kids and teaches the wrong lesson.
Georgina Bloomberg
Nothing really teaches you for the film world.
Tom Bateman
I think that the Bible teaches that homosexuality is a sin, but the Bible also teaches that pride is a sin, jealousy is a sin, and hate is a sin, evil thoughts are a sin. So I don’t think that homosexuality should be chosen as the overwhelming sin that we are doing today.
Billy Graham
In my opinion, sport teaches valuable lessons in extremely rewarding circumstances.
Scott Moir
A good roommate teaches you to be the best.
Rajeev Suri
I see the beauty in boxing. It teaches me strength physically, but mostly mentally. I had to learn my strength, because for so long I could have been tougher than I was.
Kelly Rowland
At heart, ‘Chef’ is a daddy-daycare fable about an overextended man who teaches his 10-year-old son the family business and learns to love him.
Richard Corliss
Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or ill it teaches the whole people by its example.
Timothy McVeigh
It’s a rare opportunity to play a character that is not only a lot of fun to portray, but it’s also rare to play someone that teaches you something.
Scott Michael Foster
I learned so much because I moved out of my mom’s when I was 18. It teaches you to be responsible, to be independent.
Pia Wurtzbach
Sitting down for dinner not only helps you learn, but also teaches you how to listen – which I feel is the most important skill to have. I remember as a kid going around the table listening to everyone’s day. It was hard to have the manners not to interrupt back then.
Michael Symon
Every film you see at a festival teaches you something.
Mani Ratnam
Anyone who teaches knows that you don’t really experience a text until you’ve taught it, in loving detail, with an intelligent and responsive class.
Joyce Carol Oates
Suffering is not good for the soul, unless it teaches you to stop suffering.
Jane Roberts
If the Internet teaches us anything, it is that great value comes from leaving core resources in a commons, where they’re free for people to build upon as they see fit.
Lawrence Lessig
I don’t know what else teaches you as much as writing. Perhaps reading. So if I don’t have one or the other in the course of the day, I feel old.
Hilton Als
I gave my archive to Emory University because there’s a really dear friend who teaches there, Rudolph Byrd, and he’s the editor.
Alice Walker
In the urban community, the church doesn’t just take people to Heaven; it feeds, clothes, and houses them. It teaches them how to read and gets them jobs. The church should be doing all that. What the government should be doing is freeing up the church and supporting the church, as long as it is providing social services.
Tony Evans
Sometimes a loss is the best thing that can happen. It teaches you what you should have done next time.
Snoop Dogg
I read poetry every day. I look at it as an exercise, a kind of T’ai Chi for writers. It teaches economy of form.
Roger Zelazny
In other words, if a teacher only teaches in one way, then they conclude that the kids who can’t learn well that way don’t have the ability, when, in fact, it may be that the way the teacher’s teaching is not a particularly good match to the way those kids learn.
Robert Sternberg
My parents were so poor when I was a kid, I never went anywhere. I take our youngsters with us because I don’t know anything that teaches them so much.
Alan Ladd
A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverance, and to turn around three times before lying down.
Robert Benchley
Philosophy teaches you to think big.
Jay Chandrasekhar
I suppose I have the tastes of someone who teaches at a university in the provinces.
Andrew Davies
I teach at USC, and it’s obvious to anyone who teaches college students that they don’t cover much modern history and certainly not the modern presidency.
Robert Scheer
