FIVE

When learning something new,

Prepare for frustration and tears.

The best teachers are not gentle parents;

They will leave you frustrated and tearful.

What has to be learnt does not exist without you,

Yet until it is learnt, nothing else exists!

Choose the teacher that says the least.

Stay focused on your goal.
