Nobody's born smart. We all start at zero. Can't talk, can't walk, certainly can't do algebra. Adding, reading, writing, riding a bike—nobody's good at anything at first.
There was a time when Einstein couldn't count to 10, and Shakespeare had to learn his ABC's just like the rest of us. Thankfully, we're born to learn. Slowly, surely, you stumble, slip, crawl, fall, and fail, and fall. Frustrating, confusing, trying, struggling, until one day, you walk—
one foot in front of the other, one idea on top of the next, each wrong answer making your brain a little bit stronger.
曾經愛因斯坦也數不到 10，而莎士比亞和我們其餘人一樣要從 ABC 學起。幸好，我們天生就要學習。緩慢、但堅定，你搖搖晃晃、滑倒、爬行、跌倒、失敗，又再摔一跤。挫折、迷惘、嘗試、努力，直到有天，你會走了－－一步接著一步、一個想法跟著另一個，每個錯誤答案都讓你的腦袋又更健壯一些。
Failing is just another word for growing, and you keep going. This is learning: knowing that you'll get it even if you haven't gotten it yet, because the most beautiful, complex concepts in the whole universe are built on basic ideas that anyone, anywhere, can understand. Whoever you are, wherever you are, you only have to know one thing: You can learn anything.
