Pride Goes Before A Fall

In learning this game, I am brought to the edge of truth - I see how empty and ignorant I am - what a wonderful way to learn.  As a teacher, I am torn with the idea that i must enlighten my students and allow them to face the truth that there may not be hope for them in terms of actually gaining significant knowledge for advancement in life.  To see a special education child come to the awareness of his condition and the fact that he cannot change it is not a joyful experience.  What hope is there to learn this game??? 

 Thank you Milosz - for your definition of learning.

 Learning:  To believe you are magnificient, and to gradually discover that you are not magnificient - enough labor for one human life.


I am learning.
