We’ll be discussing the importance of indomitable spirit in The Art of Learning during our lessons this week. Our in-class discussion lesson for this week follows below:
“You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” — A.A. Milne (author)
A.A. Milne reminds us that we are braver than we believe — we have the courage to make a mistake when we want to learn something new. He also reminds us we are stronger than we seem — that when we’re trying to get a punch or kick down to perfection, and put all our strength into it, you have more than you thought. He finally reminds us that we are smarter than we think — we can think through something new, and figure out how it works. All three of these things together are Indomitable Spirit — that we believe in ourselves and our abilities. When we set out to accomplish something, we believe we have the courage, the strength, and the understanding to get it done.
