The all-knowing boy

Once upon a time, there was a boy who was born knowing almost everything. School was useless for him; he already knew all that was taught there, and so was secondary school and university. His parents still thought that it would be a good idea to send him to school to socialize. One day, one of his friends told him,

            “I know one thing you don’t know!”                                                                                                                                                                                  

            “What?” asked the intelligent boy, but the other one didn’t reply. He thought and thought, he consulted his parents, the internet, but none had the answer. After a long week, he asked again to the boy that had told him that he didn’t know something what was that thing he didn’t know.

            “Please tell me what I don’t know,” he pleaded.

            “You don’t know how to learn. If someone invented a new language, you wouldn’t be able to learn it, if you committed a mistake, you wouldn’t be able to learn from it. I’ve noticed that when someone invents a new game, you never take place, because you don’t understand it, you can’t learn it. You are perfect, you can’t get better, but life’s about getting better and learning from mistakes.” The all-knowing boy walked away knowing that even though he’ll be successful in life, at the same time he would never live.
