What is the Ideal Language to learn that Combines Speed and Simplicity.

Python is a Generally powerful all purpose language but it compromises Speed and Quickness, whereby most, if not every, Extremely Fast Language Is generally tedious to learn. So my question is what language combines ease of learning and also being extremely fast.

I agree, definitely C. As John Wells stated, fast & simple (your requirements). There's another couple of advantages, too: 1. Almost _every_ platform has a cc (C compiler, the joke is this used to be the command you used to call the default on most systems and still works on most *nixes -- dunno on MS). 2. Second relates to point 1: it's easy to port. A compiler for C is simple to write from scratch (by design). So if your platform doesn't have a cc, you (or at least someone knowledgeable enough) can whip one up feasibly and quickly. As an aside, on a purely pragmatic note, I'll tell you one off-topic-ish-y-kinda-thing: when you lose chunks of your memory, a solid C knowledge is a lifesaver. Really, I consider C the most important language to learn. Even if you don't master it, it's a great tool and excellent foundation. It's also one of the few you can truly self-study (so long as you know basically how a PC works, you don't need to be an engineer).

C would be one answer. The syntax is simple (I learned it in under an hour, but it wasn't my first language.) It generates very small and fast executables in a very fast method.
