  1. I dunno about that one. As an educator my job is to teach and explain. People learn different ways and not everyone can have a book or concept dropped on them and be expected to understand it.

    That being said a favorite quote of mine is: I can explain it to you but I cannot understand for you.

  2. Disagree. There have been lots of things I didn’t understand at first but understood them once they were explained and I’ve said lots of things to other people that they didn’t understand at first but that they understood once I explained. There are some things I’ll probably just never understood no matter how many times they’re explained to me but I think the quote is wrong for talking in absolutes about understanding.
