Good rule of thumb

Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don’t.

Bill Nye

Well maybe not literally everyone know something you really want to know, but that does not matter. What matters is the idea to listen carefully. Always be open to people and their stories and never think you know enough. Breath information and knowledge like you breath air after a long dive!
