When the heroes go off the stage, the clowns come on.
If you hide your ignorance, no one will hit you and you’ll never learn.
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
To hold your stupidity inside you is to protect it, to cling to it, to embrace it. But when you let everyone see your stupidity, you get the chance to have it caught, corrected, and replaced with wisdom.
Orson Scott Card, Ender’s Shadow
