Common sense

"Common sense is not so common."

- Voltaire

We have to acquire common sense with uncommon efforts!

At the age of 30, if you have acquired and retained some "common sense" in most of the subjects you study in primary and secondary school, you are a person not so common!

We learn and we forget, that is the reason for us to keep learning and retaining what we had already acquired. If we can build something on top of what we retain, we can be name "expert" in that particular field.

It is that simple.

Yet, simple things are not easy to acquired!

The quieter ..., the more you can hear

The quieter you become the more you can hear.

- Baba Ram Dass

In study, the quieter you mind become, the more you can read with understanding.

In a learning environment like a study room or a library, quietness is well received by reader or learner who are busy communicating with their own mind. Hence, exteral noise is not welcome!
