Thirty-two

Nobody can tell you how language is learned.

Everybody does it; nobody knows how.

If the how were uncovered

the world would be yours.

You would rule, the cosmos.

all things would follow.

There’d be no need for schools.

All would be clear.

 

Once you start looking for answers, you need to have questions.

Don’t we know enough?

Do we need to ask more?

Not knowing you know, you don’t know how to stop!

Know when to stop; you already know.

Ignorance is knowledge. Not knowing is knowing.
