More to learn

The greatest threat to learning is not ignorance. The greatest threat to learning, comes from the things you already know. Often, the more you know, the less you feel the need to learn.

That’s a dangerous situation, especially these days, when the world is changing at such a rapid pace.

Though knowledge can be stored, it cannot be made secure. The value of what you know, depends primarily on your openness to learning more. Wisdom is dynamic, and withers away if it is never challenged or supplanted. Assumptions are valuable, only when they are continually tested.

If you think you know it all, you most certainly don’t. The more you know, the more there is to learn.
