In my opinion, people could amass a lot of knowledge, however there are other factors that are more important to live a meaningful life. Some could be intelligent, however if they are not street smart and lack imagination to solve problems, they might encounter problems in their life. The inability to adapt could hamper progress in life. A well balanced life is important. We encounter people with great intelligence, however they might make choices that surprise us, like were they even thinking?

Relationships and personalities

Along our life's path, we meet variety of persons and personalities. Be it the family we are born into, the siblings and relatives. We encounter variety of personality traits and interactions. Some shock us with their behavior and at times you feel as if a brick hit you. Others show great harmony, which comes with maturity, which isn't defined by age. Many go in growing physically, however they are trapped and stop growing after a certain age. Some are at the 2 year old stage, others haven't matured beyond teen years and so on.

Those are good things, right? Well, not always.
