    LEARN TO LIVE

    Charlie Hough says, "Listen to everyone. Learn from everyone.
    Nobody knows everything but everyone knows something."

    At her citizenship hearing in 1967, Immaculata Cuomo (mother of
    Mario Cuomo) was asked by the judge how many stars were on the US
    flag. She said she didn't know, but could she ask the judge a
    question? After he agreed, she asked him how many hands of
    bananas were on a stalk. He admitted he didn't know, so she
    proudly said, "Well, I do." Her citizenship was granted. Here was
    a judge who wisely realized that everyone has something to teach.

    "Live to learn and you will learn to live," says a Portuguese
    proverb. For life cannot be lived well in ignorance. In fact,
    those who live life to the fullest have a PhD in living! This is
    what a PhD in living means:

    P is for "poor in knowledge." Those who live best realize that
    they can never learn enough.

    H is for "hungry to learn." Those who hunger for knowledge will
    always find plenty to eat.

    D is for "desire to succeed." Those who desire to learn and
    improve, and those who persist in spite of obstacles, will live
    fully.

    Realize you're poor in knowledge, become hungry to learn and
    desire to succeed. Everybody and every occasion can become your
    teacher, and this is the PhD that will open the door of success.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
