"Learning is like rowing upstream: not to advance is to drop back. "
I read that and it instantly clicked with me, mainly because it's true. Personally I am at my best when I am learning new things. At my worst I am sitting here (literally and/or figuratively) on my butt doing nothing. If I have one wish for myself as I get older, it's that I never be afraid to learn new things. The alternative, it seems, is a kind of death.
