Student: You know everything we’ve been looking at? The Treaty of Versailles… The League of Nations…
Teacher: I do, yes.
Student: Did it really happen?
Teacher (passively): Yes. History as a study of things in the past.
Student (nodding): Okay cool, thank you sir.
[Student goes back to work, but sees their friend staring at them open-mouthed.]
Student (unwavering): It was a 50-50 question, so I had to ask.
If you do not ask, you do not learn.
