3 pillars of learning

Building on Benjamin Disraeli‘s, “Seeing much, suffering much, and studying much, are the three pillars of learning,” Svoboda (1996) wrote “All learning begins with seeing…but we must reflect on what we see and … then if we want to learn, we must open ourselves to the possibility of pain.”
Quoted by a presenter at a commencement ceremony from an article, Anxious Exposure, by Leavett & Richards, Smith College Studies in Social Work 67(3), June 1997.
