    Default Please see if I understand right.

    Father says we cannot learn too much while we are boys. He says he never learned anything in his life that did not come of use to him at some time or other.


    ------------------------

    Above is more complicated sentence. I understand it in a more simple way:


    Father says no matter how much we learn as young boys, it is never enough. We should still keep learning. He said he learned lots of things in his life. Everything he learned was helpful to him at some point.


    Am I right in the above rephrasing?

    It's not an exact rephrasing but, without nit-picking, it's a good enough re-statement. You do understand the meaning.
