As I have more experience in life, I come to realize that when I pretend that I know everything, I learn nothing. But if I realize that I know nothing, I get to learn more about the world.

Once I was in a taxi and we started to talk about city I live in, then the housing price in China. I asked him why couldn't the housing price decrease if there weren't people buying them. While asking him, I thought I already had the answer. I was only asking him out of boredom.

Surprisingly, he told me something new. And in that moment, I felt ashamed that I was being arrogant thinking I knew all the answers. Anyway, the reason he gave was that the government won't allow the price go down, because it will create economic bubbles and all the companies that are supplying for these buildings will go bankrupt. And these companies are run by the government.

I didn't think about how many people are connected with something I thought as simple.
