“Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway.”
Most of my friends think I'm crazy, but I'm the type that would rather be living happily in oblivion than weighed down in life with the knowledge of things that I couldn't change. Some people may counter that thought with the argument that knowledge is power, and typically I would agree - that it is far better to be an informed citizen of this world than someone who goes about their day with zero clue about the world that surrounds them. However, sometimes I think that too much knowledge doesn't equate to more power. Instead, it starts to become a hindrance on who we are and how far we can go in life. Sometimes, it's better not to be the smartest person in the room because knowing too much and thinking too much sets us back in life. It can make us too afraid or nervous or anxious to go out and fully live. Like a bumble bee, who aerodynamically, shouldn't be able to fly...but since it doesn't know it goes on flying anyway.
