“It's not a silly question if you can't answer it.” ― Jostein Gaarder Adult life can be complex and the multi-tasking to manage those complexities can get in the way of the truth. History's philosophers have always been able to clear away those complexities, and see simple distinctions. (Thoreau and Emerson were masters) If we are to follow them, then we too must be childishly simple in our questions and maturely wise in our answers. “The love of knowledge is a kind of madness.” ― C.S. Lewis

About motivation

If you are motivated, you learn better and remember more of what you study. But the  rewards may not benefit learning if the subject is not interesting. Therefore, if a subject brings pleasure to the learner it is more easily absorbed and retained. Think about your favorite teachers in school. We're they fun and energizing? Make learning fun.
