Learn as if you were to live forever

"Live as if you were to die tomorrow; learn as if you were to live forever." Gandhi

And people wonder why I'm back in college, taking graduate courses in writing.  Now I have a suitable response.

You and me both. The head of my department at UNF (history) has already told me he expects me to live until 100 so I can do lots of research and write lots of books!

Good luck in your studies.

P.S. If I had the money, I think I would just be a perennial student. Even though my years at college were extremely hard, working 40+ hours per week and attending classes full-time, I left with the feeling that I would love to not work (ha!) and just go to college the rest of my life. :>)
