Who coined the phrase repetition is the father of learning?
Actually, some versions say "repetition is the mother of
learning"-- one of the oldest comes from the ancient Latin:
Repetitio est mater studiorum. This translates as
"Repetition is the mother of studies." But in modern times,
there are a number of versions that use the father, rather than the
mother, such as in a song by Lil Wayne, in which he says
"repetition is the father of learning."
