Things worth knowing...
I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to move on when the one you love walks away from you. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything truly worth knowing. — Neil Gaiman

"They don’t teach you how to love somebody." but they do try to teach you how to fuck them.... Sometimes I think people come out of this confusing the two.

They didn't teach that either, when I was in school.

Mmmm, they tried to teach us that sex spontaneously causes VD. Never could get any information about infection rates. Although these days they do seem remarkably high.

ALMOST makes me grateful for my unfortunate run of involuntary celibacy.

They don't teach you that there are dozens of kinds of love, and two (or more!) people can love each other in different but compatible ways.
