Some people don’t want to attain knowledge because it is so beautiful.They just want it to make their life easier.
One’s success is not theirs alone.It is the accumulation of past achievements of humanity.
Unless you spread and pass on your knowledge you cannot build a legacy.
Progress is more important than perfection.
There are only two ways to counter a problem: Either you solve it or forget it’s existence,at least for the time being.
First one is a very palpable option! What about the latter? Solving is what everyone of us try to do.But sometimes we need to forget.We cannot do everything all the time,at least alone.Over-stressing doesn’t help you face problems but preparing for stress does.You sometimes need to wait for the right time and opportunity.
Isn’t our education system a great example for it? We don’t teach college level math to a middle schooler – not because they can’t solve it – but because they can’t solve it RIGHT NOW.
If we could solve all of our problems in one day,we wouldn’t have any problems on the next day.But that doesn’t happen,does it? If you can solve something,solve it.If you can’t solve something,prepare for it.
One’s experience shouldn’t be judged on the basis of how complexly they think,but how simply they answer.
Explaining math through numbers vs real life events has a big difference.
Our senses help us to gather information and our reasons help us to find true knowledge.
Superstitions and misconceptions arise when people people accept the information gathered through senses as eternal truth without any reason.They just believe what they see or hear,but don’t reason with it.
A rational animal not using its rational faculty is the biggest flaw there is.It is like buying a product only to find that it is flawed at serving its primary purpose.
Blindly believing in a fact or a fantasy is a mind hazard.Fantasy remains a fantasy unless it is proven to be a fact.A fact that is true today might not be valid tomorrow.Feeding our minds with new facts and fantasies can help us cultivate a fertile scope that can grow anything and can make anything come true.
It is a good thing to stand for what you believe in.But it is important to know (if not accept) that there are other ideas that exist in the world.Keeping yourself updated will go a long way to help you choose and strengthen your beliefs.
We only choose to strengthen something if we believe that it will be resisted or opposed.No one builds a concrete house if there are no storms to destroy your old hut.You can only defend your ideals when you are aware of other ideals that pose a threat or a potential for change.
You can only grow when you choose to learn.And when you choose to learn you cannot discriminate.You need to know everything to face the worst case scenario.That’s why open your mind to new knowledge and experiences to stand above all.
Saving your money doesn’t make you rich.Investing it does.Because the saved-up money will be used-up one day,but invested money will keep growing (with slight fluctuations of course).You only come across savings when you have done some sort of investing in the first place,right?
In the same way:
Saving your time doesn’t make you rich in terms of quality of life.Investing that time to inculcate new skills and experiences does.Because the saved-up time will be used-up one day,but the invested time will keep-up your growth.You have the luxury of idle time only when you have already done some sort of investment prior to it to save time in the future,right?
When you make current knowledge easier to access,you make future knowledge easier to discover.
