"The More I Learn, The More I Realize How Much I Don’t Know," said Albert Einstein
We connect and try to understand each other and take what we learned to better ourselves and have what we have today. Knowledge is like oxygen, which we need to breathe in every day to survive and support the functions in our body.
Learning does not discriminate against age. In other words, as long as you try hard and put in the effort to learn, you definitely can succeed. The more knowledge we have, the more we realize that there are so many things out there that we don’t know. There’s so much more to learn.
Albert Einstein, a modern philosopher, once said that “the more I learn, the more I realize how much I do not know.” This means that knowledge is just like the food we eat. We need to eat every day and the more we eat, the more hungry we get. True learners never brag that they are smart because they know that no one knows everything in this world. No one is perfect. They often are so humble and continue to take in the knowledge without uttering that they are a genius or that they know everything.
On the other hand, people who are not dedicated to learning will take in someone’s else knowledge and said that they know everything. They become arrogant and brag about what they know without continuing to further their understanding to widen their knowledge bank. In a situation where everyone shares their opinion, this group of people often believes that other’s opinions are nonsense, not good enough. It can’t be compared to their own ideas. This group of people will never improve in the future.
It is in our best interest to avoid spending too much time with people that are closed-minded and think that they are always right because it could have negative influences on ourselves.
Albert Einstein: "Once you stop learning, you start dying."
Socrates: "The only true wisdom is in knowing you don't know everything."
