Becoming Skilled Using Distance Learning Courses

Famous quotes containing the words courses, learning, skilled and/or distance:

    However, our fates at least are social. Our courses do not diverge; but as the web of destiny is woven it is fulled, and we are cast more and more into the centre. Men naturally, though feebly, seek this alliance, and their actions faintly foretell it.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    There are no other questions than these,
    Half squashed in mud, emerging out of the moment
    We all live, learning to like it. No sonnet
    On this furthest strip of land....
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    Apart from the fact that women posess the equipment for lactation, mothers seem no more predisposed to, or innately skilled at, child care than are fathers, siblings or non parents. Besides, women obviously come in a variety of shapes, sizes, talents and temperaments. Why shouldn’t they vary in degrees of motherhood?
    Shari Thurer (20th century)

    You say I’m small? I certainly can relate, although it is a matter of perspective. The distance is deceptive, my friend, you stand too low.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)
