Teaching, Learning, and Understanding

The sources of information are numerous, but the sources of reliable information are fewer.

Knowledge based on reliable information can be quite useful.

Knowledge can be taught but understanding cannot.

Understanding is an experience unique to the individual.

Continued application of knowledge can lead to understanding, but understanding is not guaranteed.

Don’t confuse knowledge with understanding!
