I often have talks with my father and because I'm quit intelligent, he voices concern that I will become prideful and think I know it all. I always groan at the lack of his understanding to voice such a concern. I'm human and inherently not perfect, but I always try to learn more and I will never stop trying to learn. Knowledge is the mental food that helps and sustains me and if I were to ever stop trying to learn... well, I'd rather shoot myself in the foot. I never consider myself superior to anyone, I would be in serious error if I did. We each have our own trials, and so the best we can all do is to keep advancing ourselves. It makes me happy to see that I'm smarter or stronger than yesterday. And that's how to face life. You become better one day at a time.
