The old saying says, “When you stop learning, you start dying.” A newer saying claims, “When you stop learning you become a Republican.” Truth is none of us can know everything, and most of us have already forgotten more than has stayed with us. Staying involved helps you stay interested, and realizing we’re involved whether or not we want that helps to inspire us to act. It helps to learn as much as we can about all kinds of things, from as many places as we can, even when we don’t like what they tell us. I have read books I didn’t understand when they were all I had, and then learned to understand them while reading other books. Not bragging. It’s just that there have been a lot of times in my life when something hard was all I had, and I feel like that kind of circumstance has blessed me. Learning can be fun if we approach it with that in mind. It’s another thing that can happen to you whether or not you want that. It’s best to make a habit of it, and to make it happen for you.
