Modest places require vital skills. If you are well educated, beware of the simple people. They may give you a lesson.
This reminds me of a story:
Now Nasreddin was a ferryman. One day he took a scholar in his boat. As he listened to the Hodja's chatter the learned man - a scholar equal to Rumi himself - observed some errors of speech and asked:
"Tell me Hoca, did you ever study grammar?"
"What a shame! You wasted half of your life."
Nasreddin grew silent.
After a while he asked:
"Wise one, did you learn to swim?"
"No", said the professor.
"What a pity! You wasted your entire life, Master. We sink. "
