It is widely accepted that to live and learn is a creed of many centuries. Even in contemporary society, life -long learning still carries great importance to personal happiness.
To begin with, hardly can anyone achieve genuine success in his career without learning . As competition in all lines of work grows increasingly fierce, we must defeat our rivals through learning. Furthermore, according to a latest survey conducted by an authority on the Internet, 95 percent of people interviewed answered that individual happiness and success can not exist without life-long learning. In addition, an increasing number of people come to realize the value of persistent learning. A case in point is those aged citizens having been retried from work , who seek to learning Chinese drawing, calligraphy and Peking drama, so that their life after retirement can be meaningful, full of colors.
Taking into account the analysis above, we can safely draw a conclusion that where there is leaning , there is life-long happiness.
As an old saying goes，“ Learning is a daily experience and a lifetime mission”. Apparently，the meaning of this saying is that if we truly desire to learn something，we are supposed to devote our life to it.
There are several reasons accounting for this viewpoint. Firstly，learning itself is an actually complicated and painful matter，and as a result，it is advisable for us to commit much more time even our whole life to it. Additionally，it is exceedingly obvious that we are easy to forget what we learned，and accordingly，the significance of lifetime learning cannot be ignored. For example，memorizing vocabulary is commonly the first step of preparing for an English test.
To sum up，lifelong learning lays a solid foundation to the development of ourselves，and only when we realize the significance of lifetime learning can we understand the essence of learning.
