As soon as you understand 2 x 4

    (two groups of four) you can't

    believe there was a time when you

    didn't understand it.


             Quoting from Alina Tugend:

    If students are afraid of mistakes, then they're afraid of trying something new, of being creative, of thinking in a different way. They're scared to raise their hands when they don't know the answer, and their response to a difficult problem is to ask the teacher rather than try different solutions that might – gasp be – wrong. They are, as one teacher told me, victims of excellence.
