This is great. I like the way you used these two stories to pinpoint a dilemma for the youth in search of knowledge: What shall I do? The answer may be simple but never easy. I admire the way you handled this topic.
Yes, good teaching about teaching! I liked this as a summary:

"It is said that when the pupil is ready, the teacher will appear, whether the student is ready for the facts is another issue. Unfortunately, there are times when the learned sage offers crucial information and the student is too distracted to take heed. Experience becomes the impartial teacher forcing the student’s desperate recognition for air."
