The Curse of Knowledge

On the surface, it seems that having knowledge is a good thing. I am a firm believer of acquiring knowledge, regardless of what field it may be. You never know when you might need a skill or understanding of a particular concept, and it is often that you can apply that knowledge in a drastically different context. An understanding of one subject will complement another to some degree, regardless of how related they are. For instance, Einstein loved the elegance and beauty that he found in music, where because of music he sought to achieve this same beauty in the formulation of his theories.

The magic of One on One’s

A general rule of thumb that I have found is that the depth of conversation is usually inversely proportional to the number of people partaking in it. People tend to be more vulnerable in smaller groups, where in a bigger group it is more likely to find someone that you are not comfortable opening up to.

Fishing for Knowledge

Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

Anne ritchie

This is an often used saying, in which the oldest English use of this proverb was in a British novel published in 1885. This proverb sheds light on the notion that it is wise in the long run to teach someone how to do something, rather than to do that something for them. It is a plea towards teaching for independence as well as self-sufficiency.
