A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, memory, and explanations

The Zen masters have the right idea--no pain no gain:  thwack a silly nebbish and he'll remember it far longer and more indelibly than any words you muster at him.  Not absolutely everything can or should have to be explained, and particularly not to everybody.  But a concussion is a value-judgment anyone gets the point of.

A Quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupery on children, understanding, grown ups, and explanations

Grown ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
