Pgrass101's paracord thread (Here: Paracord vs Nylon Cord) reminded me of one of my all time favorite knot-tying guides. Animated, it provides step-by-step instructions, from simple knots to highly complex decorative knots. A few simple knots can be life-saving, a few can be time and trouble saving.........
One of my favorites (from Boy Scouts) is the Taut-Line Hitch, which is improved by the Midshipman's hitch. Another is the simple Overhand (for horses shanks and such), while the basic Bowlines and squares work into everyday tasks as well as others. I probably remember the Boy Scout basics the best, and never sailed or served, so that's my knot experience.
Poke around here, and have some memories refreshed. Click on the different categories, and have some fun! The site is full of information and history, and invaluable for teaching and learning:

"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
Thanks for posting that. I have wanted to re learn all the knots I use to know, and here it is!
