Self Education — Teach Yourself Anything

  • There is no limit to how many questions you can ask, or should ask.
  • Be aware that some people are annoyed by questions. In fact, the less a person knows, and the less patient a person, the more a question will bug that person. That in itself tells you a great deal.
  • If you only ever see rom-coms, go and see a documentary or an action film instexad.
  • If you only ever read comics, try a novel instead.
  • If you only ever see car rallies, go and see a museum exhibition instead.

“I don’t love studying. I hate studying. I like learning. Learning is beautiful.” — Natalie Portman

  • Should you feel that what they tell you is old hat and odd, put aside your biases and really listen. There are authentic human things to learn from older people, regardless of where modern technology sits at any one time.

“I am always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.” — Winston Churchill

“Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning. “— William Arthur Ward
