If you are afraid to ask a question for risk of being thought a fool for a few minutes, not asking will make you a fool forever for not asking it and seeking an answer.

Without taking the risks and getting experience and knowledge one will never futher themselves. To learn you must ask, even if at that moment you feel like a fool. You only need to ask once then you can be asked and it will be someone elses turn to be the fool.
