Every act of conscious learning requires the willingness to suffer an
injury to one's self-esteem. That is why young children, before they
are aware of their own self-importance, learn so easily; and why older
persons, especially if vain or important, cannot learn at all.

You are 14 and I am 46.  We are both learning.  You keep thinking and 
learning and asking questions.

This is not directed at you, Mason,  but at the rash folly of fools 
whose self esteem is so poor they are critical of much.  A spoon does 
not know the taste of soup, nor a learned fool the taste of wisdom.
