Probably, go here:

If you don't find what you need there, go to Google, type in "Learning, Quotations" which should give you lots of choices.

Bartlett's at Bartleby is also good for quotes:

The Waking

I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I feel my fate in what I cannot fear.
I learn by going where I have to go.

We think by feeling. What is there to know?
I hear my being dance from ear to ear.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

Of those so close beside me, which are you?
God bless the Ground! I shall walk softly there,
And learn by going where I have to go.

Light takes the Tree; but who can tell us how?
The lowly worm climbs up a winding stair;
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

Great Nature has another thing to do
To you and me; so take the lively air,
And, lovely, learn by going where to go.

This shaking keeps me steady. I should know.
What falls away is always. And is near.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I learn by going where I have to go.

-- Theodore Roethke

These are about learning, too:

"Never judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes."

"Give a man a fish, and he can eat a meal. Teach a man to fish, and he can eat for a lifetime."

Twist on that (from sit-com "Doctor, Doctor"): "Lend a man a tie and he's dressed for the evening. Teach a man to accessorize and he's dressed for life."

(If you go to Bartleby for quotations, look up TEACHING quotations as well as quotations about LEARNING.)
