The school year is in full swing! No matter what stage of schooling you are in, it can be challenging to stay motivated and determined when it comes to studying well. With all the pressures of maintaining good relationships, working, cultivating a social life, etc, we can neglect one of the most important parts of all of it :our education.

We have a great opportunity to honor God through our studies. Here are some great quotes from the saints on studying well and staying the course, even when it is difficult!
