I am not driven by any bitterness by what happened in Athens. I learnt a lot of lessons from it and probably came through it a stronger person in the end. There have been a lot of near misses, and that’s taught me to keep persevering and that there is a chance it can come right.

I’m a bit dyslexic so I found learning to read hard. I muddled up the letters but learnt to power through.

The moral values I’ve learnt in my life I’ve learnt through football.

My father spoke with something very similar to a 1920s newscaster type of English, and I learnt that accent of power in post-colonial Zimbabwe. So I learnt that, and I learnt how to copy it, and I learnt how to shift in and out of it, but also talk like my mother’s relatives in the village.

I made many mistakes and I also learnt a lot of lessons. Whatever I picked up from my mistakes is helping me a lot ever since.

I have learnt to deal with the box office result. Whatever happened to any film, thankfully, people always appreciated my performance.

If there’s one thing I’ve learnt, it’s that I don’t think a man ever looks better than when he’s in a suit. So I’m wearing them increasingly, not in my personal life, but in my professional life, and I’m really enjoying it.

Over the years people would ask me which co-star have you been a fan of or admired. I have always said Rishi Kapoor and Kamal Haasan. They are my two co-stars from whom I have really learnt a lot. I have been a great fan of both of them.

I have learnt three things from Barry John which are applicable to life, too: Don’t expect anything from another actor, one shouldn’t judge, and one shouldn’t block things.

My mother was a beauty queen in her hey day. That’s where I learnt a little about makeup and hair… I had never picked up or even seen a ‘Vogue‘ before I was 17. I had no idea about fashion, magazines, models or designers. No idea.

You know what else I’ve learnt? That it’s all right not to ride the crest of the wave. Every time a wave comes along I retreat, and I haven’t come to any harm yet.

Jennifer Ehle
I have made mistakes and learnt from them.

From the age of 14 onwards it was really punk rock, The Clash particularly. I think I learnt more from them than I did at school, because that got me into fashion, politics.

Neeru Bajwa
When I married Sammy, my first husband, we were both just so young. But I’ve had a hugely successful career and I owe a lot of what I learnt in the industry to him, because he was already a top professional, and I was a nobody, really.

It is the forces of the universe that make human beings fall ill.

As an artiste, I have learnt a lot from Pankaj and still get amazed at his dedication to give nothing but the very best each and every time.

I learnt how acting is more about listening to the other person; it is about reaction. You learn to be a foil, and that helped when it came to directing.

The lesson I have thoroughly learnt, and wish to pass on to others, is to know the enduring happiness that the love of a garden gives.

Gertrude Jekyll
Where there are no spectators, there is no sponsorship. Where there is no sponsorship, there is no money. Where there is no money, there are no officials with fingers in the pot. The lesson to be learnt from this is simple. If we want honest sport, we have to stop watching it.

My parents gave us all a chance to accomplish our goals,and I was blessed with that – I was lucky with that – and I learnt at a very young age that anything less than my best wasn’t acceptable.

Obviously, I’m very happy when one of my films becomes a blockbuster. However, after a point, I want to switch off. I have learnt to just move on. Too much pressure can make you wrong.

I’m starting to shake it off, I am quite self-conscious, and it’s only when I’m playing roles that I can escape that. The older I get, the more people tell me it’s absolutely fine to be the way you are with all your quirks and nuances, and I wish I’d learnt that younger – I would have relaxed a bit more.

I would type in things like, ‘How to play beginner songs on guitar,’ and one of the first I learnt was ‘Hey, Soul Sister’ by Train. I taught myself these chords I didn’t know the name of and slowly started to get the hang. I was obsessed with it.

I was lucky to work with some of the big names such as Anu Malik, Himesh Reshammiya, Sajid Wajid, Salim Sulaiman, Mithoon, Jeet Ganguli and Pritam. I have learnt a lot from all of them and have practically grown as an artist with every song that I have rendered.

It sounds like a cliche but I also learnt that you’re not going to fall for the right person until you really love yourself and feel good about how you are.

Kangana Ran

I used to wear these big shapeless clothes and ended up just looking like a potato in a sack. I’ve learnt now to accentuate the bits that I’m happiest with. That’s probably my waist – a lot of my clothes go in at the waist and emphasise my hips, which I’m very proud of.

I admire Pat Shortt as a businessman. Such acumen is unusual for an entertainer. He did all his own deals. I learnt a lot from Pat when I was on the road with him for a year.

I learnt basic cookery by watching my mum.

Always remember those things that tend to strengthen and improve your understanding. You cannot learn without attention, neither retain those lessons that you have once learnt without frequently reflecting upon and reviewing them in your mind; by this means, things long past will remain impressed upon your memory.

Obviously it is well documented that I didn’t love the 800m when I started out. But I, er, learnt to appreciate it.

I have learnt that bullies use fear and intimidation as their primary weapons.

I have matured as a player and learnt to perform under different situations.

I learnt violin at school and hated it. I wish I’d learnt guitar or piano.

I don’t read books. I like to read newspapers and magazines, but I’ve never learnt to enjoy books or novels.

You can’t control the paparazzi. But if you go to Coachella you’re going to get photographed. Whereas if you’re at home, walking down the street you probably won’t. It’s something I’ve learnt to navigate my way around but I try to keep my private life private.

Yet higher religion, which is only a search for a larger life, is essentially experience and recognized the necessity of experience as its foundation long before science learnt to do so.

You know, one of the things I’ve learnt since coming out of office is how much easier it is to give the advice than take the decision. I mean, you know, it’s tough.

I’ve learnt I can compete with the best in the world.

Heather Watson
We’ve all had relationships; I’ve had them in my past, and I don’t look back on them and think, ‘Ah, that was a mistake.’ I take what I learnt and move onto the next one.

I was doing it the amateur way, doing everything myself till ‘Naalaya Iyakunar.’ They said, ‘You need crew members‘; they insisted on having proper production values. So I learnt a lot about making films for that show.

It was only in ‘Khadgam’ that I learnt to project myself and carry off an image of a celebrity, which is very different from what I am in real life.

I always used to want everyone to like me, because it used to hurt so much when people made snidey comments or gave me bad reviews, but I’ve learnt to deal with it.

I guess I’m lucky I learned quite young not to really care what people say. I’ve learnt young to take a stand if I feel like something’s wrong.

When I was younger, if I got into arguments, I’d become aggressive and violent, but I learnt the hard way that was only going to end negatively.

Collin Jackson was a little before my time and he was a really good athlete. I’ve raced with him, but he’s now retired. He’s a really good role model and someone that I’ve learnt a lot from.

I started driving when I was really young, at the age of 15-16. It just came naturally to me because I learnt it on my own by observing others. Of course, I was never allowed to drive until I was 18, but I would park my parents’ car at every given opportunity.

You evolve with each and every film you do. In every film that I did, I learnt something or the other, and I am constantly learning and hopefully becoming better.

After completing ‘Aadum Koothu,’ I was assigned to act with Cheran again for ‘Mayakkannadi.’ I learnt a lot working with him.

In life, I take my decisions and stand by them. Some decisions may have proven to be not the best, but I have learnt from them, and I’ve never repeated a mistake again. If someone tells me to turn left, I will go right! I could not have been taught a lesson in any other way rather than by going through it.

The more history I learnt, the less interested I got in winning arguments and the more interested in establishing the truth.

I can’t take a break from acting but I’ve learnt to work my way around films and devote time to my music career.

The one important lesson that I have learnt in my life is that embrace life as it comes.

You never know why a film gets accepted and why it doesn’t. I have learnt to just go with the flow.

A man can’t pass on, like a mother could, an awareness of your body, or sensuality, or what it means to be a woman. I was never taught what femininity was. I learnt it – or rather I invented it – on my own. I tended not to talk at all, if people were staring at me.

I have worked with brilliant people, so it has been a great journey and learnt a lot from them.

My feeling is that writing is, for me, a pathological condition. That could sound like a mystical experience, and it may be a mystical experience, but I have learnt just to go with it.

From every coach that has coached me I have learnt something.

I feel enough distance from the person I used to be. I’m not ashamed about my life anymore, because I’ve learnt from it.

‘Hollyoaks’ is where I learnt a lot of the craft, being in front of a camera six days a week. That’s certainly an experience you don’t get in drama school. It invites you to be comfortable in front of the camera.

Why do our kids need to be protected from flu? Isn’t that something only for the cold western countries who have long, cold, below-zero winters?

When I played 2 months in county cricket, I learnt a lot.
