“This is college. Not a pressure cooker. Even a circus lion learns to sit on a chair in fear of the whip. But you call such lion ‘well trained’ not ‘well educated’ “.
-Rancho, The 3 Idiots
In this quote, Rancho implies that college schools should not be a place of pressures; pressure to learn and to pass. He even uses an analogy of a circus lion and college student. In his analogy, it means that a circus lion can learn to sit on a chair because of the fear of whip. Just like a student, he can learn everything because he fears the professor and fears to fail. But “well-trained” is different from “well-educated”. You can call yourself a well-educated when you learn it because you want to.
I can relate this quote to myself because I am also a college student. In my first year in college, I can feel all the pressures. I’m studying not because I want to but because I need to. It’s not bad to feel the pressure but too much of it can lead to personal problems. That is why I learned that I should study not because I need to but because I want to.
“Follow your dream. Don’t study something you know you’re bad at and follow your passion”.
-Rancho, The 3 Idiots This quote is about his friend that wants photography but studied engineering. This quote means that we should follow our passion and that passion is surely also our dream. We should study what we want and what we excel at. It is our advantage to do this because we are simply doing our passion to achieve our dreams.
