- Nobody's born (smart). We all (start) at zero. Can't (talk), can't (walk), certainly can't do algebra. Adding, reading, writing, (riding) a bike, nobody's (good) at anything first. There was a time when Einstein couldn't (count) to 10, and Shakespeare had to learn his ABC's just like (the) (rest) of us. Thankfully, we're (born) to learn. Slowly, surely, you (stumble), slip, crawl, (fall), and (fail),and fall, frustrating, (confusing), trying, struggling, until one day, you walk. One foot in front of (the) (other), one idea on top the next. Each (wrong) answer making your brain a little bit (stronger). Failing is just another work for (growing). But you keep going. This is (learning). Knowing that you'll get it even if you haven't gotten it yet. Because the most beautiful, (complex) concepts in the whole (universe) are built on basic ideas that anyone can learn, anywhere can understand. (Whoever) you are, (whereever) you are, you only have to know one thing: You can learn anything.
