For those who do not take full advantage of observation and experience, and who take a longer time than others to learn the lessons of daily life.

[Bach: Twelve Healers and Other Remedies 1936]

They may be careless, clumsy, slow in learning, inattentive and as children even unresponsive to learning. [Bach]
