Learning Should be a Pleasure...Not a Chore

I hate the idea that, when it comes to books and learning, HARD is often seen as the opposite of FUN. It’s strange to me that we should be so quick to give up on a book or a math problem when we are so willing to grapple, for centuries if necessary, with a single level of Angry Birds. When I was a student why was I so willing to work so hard…much, much too hard, to make people like me…and so unwilling to work hard to read great novels or comprehend the edgelessness of the universe.
…The search is a pleasure, and a difficult one…as most great pleasures are.

-John Green
