    You don't know what you don't know. 

    Much of what you think you know is incorrect. 

    Together, we must find out why you don't know what you don't know. 

    It is practice of the right kind that makes perfect. 

    You will never do well if you stop doing better. 

    Students never fail, only teachers do. 

    A student's performance is not so much a reflection on the student, as it is on the instructor's ability to teach. 

    Learning is not a straight line up... let the teacher set the standards of performance.

    Much of learning to fly is to unlearn preconceptions and habits. 

    The way you are first taught and learn a procedure is the way you will react in an emergency. It's important to learn right the first time. 

    Unlearning is a very necessary and difficult part of learning to fly. 

    You learn according to what you bring into the situation. 

    Being prepared for a flight saves you money by saving time. 

    Given the choice, make the safe decision. 

    If you must make a mistake, make it a new one. 

    One problem is a problem, two problems are a hazard; three problems create accidents.

    Trusting to luck alone is not conducive to an extended flying career. 

    We progress through repeated success; we learn through our mistakes. 

    An instructors knowledge is proportional to the mistakes he's made. 

    Good habits deteriorate over time. 

    Accidents happen when you run out of experience. 

    Self instruction is the garden that raises bad habits. 

    Our failures teach us. If you want to increase your chances of success double your failure rate. 

    ... almost always. Nothing is always. 

    Luck will do for skill, but not consistently. 

    The nice thing about a mistake is the pleasure it gives others. 

    You're only young once, but you can be immature forever. 

    Flying, like life, is full of precluded possibilities.
    Can't do... won't do... shouldn't do... 

    What you know is not as important as what you do with it.
