We would like to draw your attention to two interesting aspects on learning:

“In 1665, when Cambridge University closed due to the plague, Isaac Newton used his time away to pursue self directed learning and ended up inventing calculus. Pundits and hand- wringers love to claim that unversities are the only path to a successful life. In truth an inquisitive mind, rigorously applied to a deep rooted problem, can change the world as readily as the plushest academic lab.”
