Sex education classes are like in-home sales parties for abortions. Phyllis Schlafly
America is a knowledge-based society, where information counts as much as material resources. Therefore those with the power to define what qualifies as knowledge - to determine what are the accepted facts - wield the greatest social and political power. Nancy Pearcey
Adam knew Eve his wife and she conceived. It is a pity that this is still the only knowledge of their wives at which some men seem to arrive. F. H. Bradley

In the matter of learning, the difference between the earnest and the careless student stands out clearly. The same holds true in the mastering of passion and the weaknesses to which our nature is subject, as in the acquiring of virtue. Saint Ignatius

Learning to accept failure on multiple levels is, to my way of thinking, the key to become a world-class therapist. But that means humility, and setting your ego aside, while you develop superb new technical skills. David D. Burns
Though knowledge itself increasingly ignores boundaries between fields, professors are apt to organize their pedagogy around the methods and history of their academic subculture rather than some coherent topic in the world. Steven Pinker
No amount of charters, direct primaries, or short ballots will make a democracy out of an illiterate people. Walter Lippmann
In the old days, before there was such a thing as film schools, directors learned the camera by watching other directors, and learning from their own dailies, and listening to the cameraman, and seeing what would work. Some of those guys could cut their movies in their head. Don Ameche

There is no force more liberating than the knowledge that you are fighting for others. Bob Kerrey

Optimizing return on capital will generate less growth than optimizing return on education. Clayton M. Christensen

It is remarkable how many misconceptions there are here about life in the developing world and I think that that knowledge gap has done a lot to contribute to the imbalance quite frankly. Emma Thompson
So long as these kinds of inequalities persist, all of us who are given expensive educations have to live with the knowledge that our victories are contaminated because the game has been rigged to our advantage. Jonathan Kozol
People have asked me about the 19th century and how I knew so much about it. And the fact is I really grew up in the 19th century, because North Carolina in the 1950s, the early years of my childhood, was exactly synchronous with North Carolina in the 1850s. And I used every scrap of knowledge that I had. Allan Gurganus
Children don't just play any more - they're far too busy learning to fence and taking extra French classes. In the end, you're actually doing more damage to your children by trying to hot-house them. It's far better to remain a calm parent. Shirley Henderson
The greatest obstacle to those who hope to reform American education is complacency. Diane Ravitch
Once we know of atrocities we cannot remain silent, and knowledge inevitably leads to an urge to protect the innocent. Azar Nafisi
When I was in fourth grade... this wonderful teacher said you didn't have to write a book report, you could just talk about the book, you could do a drawing of the book, you could write a play inspired by the book, and that's what I did. I got to be so famous. I had to go around to every school and perform it. It was just so natural and fun. Didi Conn

Learning to domesticate the horse was a sort of energy revolution. David Christian
People used to ask me for advice, and I'd say, 'Please, don't ask me!' Yes, I did economics at Oxford, but that's not the same as having a broad knowledge of personal finance. Sophie Kinsella
There's my education in computers, right there; this is the whole thing, everything I took out of a book. Howard Aiken
Education used to be a slice of life, something you did as a child through college, and then spent the rest of your life working, and then death. Everything is about to change. I believe education will become something that fits seamlessly into life, and we will take big clunky things like degrees and college and fit them into a weekend. Sebastian Thrun
What makes the bravery of the men and women of the FBI so special is that they know exactly what they're in for. They spend weeks and weeks in an academy learning just how hard and dangerous this work is. Then they raise their right hands and take an oath and do that work anyway. James Comey
By making all my materials freely available through 'Giving 2.0' ProjectU, I am on a mission to extend philanthropy education to colleges globally and far beyond campus walls. Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen

A good education gives you confidence to stick up your hand for anything - whether it is the job you want, or the bloke. And the more you stick up your hand, the better your chances are that you will get what you want. Kate Reardon
Vadim was both my teacher and my husband. I placed myself entirely in his hands. Brigitte Bardot
Bebop and hip-hop, in so many ways, they're connected. A lot of rappers remind me so much of bebop guys in terms of improvisation, beats and rhymes. My dream is to see hip-hop incorporated in education. You've got the youth of the world in the palm of your hand. Quincy Jones
From the time I started school, it was clear to everyone that I wasn't learning at the same pace as other kids. Carre Otis

I continuously go further and further learning about my own limitations, my body limitation, psychological limitations. It's a way of life for me. Ayrton Senna

'Expect nothing and hope for the best' is my mantra. A drama teacher called Joseph Blatchley told me that, and it's the best advice I've had. If you keep an open mind and don't expect too much, then you won't be disappointed. Michelle Dockery
Unsurprisingly, the poll-takers don't talk a lot in public about the ignorance of the electorate on political and public policy matters. And the politicians are not going to disclose the, let's say, limited body of knowledge in their constituencies. You don't get elected calling your voters airheads. Jack Germond
I mean, it's the life lessons that I suppose you learn that nobody gets a free ride and that you do the best you can with the means that you can and try to open yourself to as much knowledge and all that that you can. Joe Mantegna

No group and no government can properly prescribe precisely what should constitute the body of knowledge with which true education is concerned. Franklin D. Roosevelt
It's really cool to know that you've put something together that isn't for a particular audience. It's so often that a TV show can really only speak to one sect of the population, and this really is something that appeals to a worldwide fan base. People who are into the pursuit of knowledge. Their reaction has meant the world to us. David Krumholtz

While I do commend the Administration on its commitment and focus on high school reform, I believe that we must focus on graduation as the key accountability measure. Ruben Hinojosa
It just makes you a better artist when you're with people who are great artists themselves. Being around Kanye, soaking up all the knowledge, all the stuff he got. Big Sean

I am an education ambassador, mainly working with schools. Daley Thompson
When you look at statistics for the white community alone, you see that we've become two separate worlds in which the successful are educated and wait to have children until they are married, and those in poverty are primarily those without higher education and with children outside of marriage. Rand Paul
On the simplest level, telecommuting makes it harder for people to have the kinds of informal interactions that are crucial to the way knowledge moves through an organization.

Good questions outrank easy answers. Paul Samuelson
I was always into sports and a lot of physical activities. My dad was a kickboxer and a body builder. My mom was an aerobics teacher. Billy Magnussen
Like our physical bodies, our memory becomes out of shape. As children, we are constantly learning new experiences, but by the time we reach our 20s, we start to lead a more sedentary life both mentally and physically. Our lives become routine, and we stop challenging our brains, and our memory starts to suffer. Tony Buzan
If we want to implement climate protection worldwide, countries like Germany, which are capable of developing new technologies, will have to hand over some of their knowledge. We can't expect to have our cake and eat it too. Sigmar Gabriel

I think if you have to pay for your education, you worry very seriously about you're going to do when you've got your degree. James Dyson
Health care is not a privilege. It's a right. It's a right as fundamental as civil rights. It's a right as fundamental as giving every child a chance to get a public education. Rod Blagojevich

Our school education ignores, in a thousand ways, the rules of healthy development. Elizabeth Blackwell
Education to me is the most important thing that we've got going in this country. I mean, a lot of my family are teachers. I was the recipient of a great public education, and I see that's one of the first things that we're going to go, 'What are we going to raise?' The ignorant masses. Craig T. Nelson
So what it boils down to, in my humble opinion, is that we need to support the arts in schools, and at every other level in the education of children. Phil Lesh
I enjoy learning about the new technologies. I enjoy getting to know the new fans and dealing with them on their turf. Lea Thompson
I played the piano as a boy for six years, from the time I was six to 12 years old. My piano lessons ended when my father died because our family had no more money. I used to have a mestiza teacher.

I like doing accents and I like learning as much as I can learn. Jaime King
I knew nothing about martial arts. The coach told me I was talented with learning martial arts, and put me in a school. Three years later I got my first championship in China. Jet Li
I have discovered in 20 years of moving around a ballpark, that the knowledge of the game is usually in inverse proportion to the price of the seats. Bill Veeck
I'd had a French education for three years, my father being in the army. From 9 to 12, I went to French school. I've been sort of part of the culture, part of the geography, since I was quite young - the imprint was there. Charlotte Rampling
My dad always told me to stand up to bullies, and Bill O'Reilly is kind of a bully, and he's the kind of kid who hits other kids on the playground. And when you hit him, he runs to the teacher and says, 'Teacher, sue him.' Al Franken
Historically, Labour has used technology as a form of control. We would use pagers and faxes to send out messages telling people what line to take. The key learning from the Obama campaign is to use technology to empower your supporters. Douglas Alexander
There are moments as a teacher when I'm conscious that I'm trotting out the same exact phrase my professor used with me years ago. It's an eerie feeling, as if my old mentor is not just in the room, but in my shoes, using me as his mouthpiece. Abraham Verghese
The presentations and conceptions of the average man of the world are formed and dominated, not by the full and pure desire for knowledge as an end in itself, but by the struggle to adapt himself favourably to the conditions of life. Ernst Mach

When I go back into education, I'm going to do business studies. Jourdan Dunn
Never stand still. Only stand still enough to learn, and once you stop learning in that stance, move off. Always keep yourself engaged, in theater, in whatever job you can get. If you can't get an acting job, then go backstage. Or take tickets. But be around actors because that is where you will primarily learn. Ed Asner
Especially girls, but any kids exposed to music programs and arts programs do much better on their tests. They have a better chance of going to college. They can focus better.

I've worked throughout California as a poet: in colleges, universities, worker camps, migrant education offices, continuation high schools, juvenile halls, prisons, and gifted classrooms. Juan Felipe Herrera
What my father gave me more than anything else is great tutoring and a great brain, frankly. You know, my father's brother was a top person at MIT, went to MIT, graduated from MIT, was a teacher at MIT, a professor at MIT, a great engineer. I mean, you know, I have very good genes. Donald Trump
Most people stop learning out of fear. They are afraid they cannot learn. Henry B. Eyring

Nothing in education is so astonishing as the amount of ignorance it accumulates in the form of inert facts. Henry Adams
I had been here five years already, training very hard, learning about the systems, the shuttle, the station systems. But, everything really became real when I started to work with them. Philippe Perrin

The small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify we give the name of knowledge. Ambrose Bierce

I wanted to acquire an education, work extremely hard and never deviate from my goal, to make it. Taylor Caldwell

Ken Buck
There's a lack of knowledge about Iran and the Iranian people. Hooman Majd

The first big break was winning a scholarship to go to Cambridge University. I was very lucky, because my parents couldn't have afforded a university education for me. Without a scholarship I couldn't possibly have gone. Trevor Nunn

I like a lot of things about yoga - its an intro to good music; with each good teacher you study with, you learn a lot about them personally; it's not just about specific technique or poses. I also like Shavasana - not too many exercise routines let you nap at the end of them. You don't see nap pods in CrossFit gyms. Charles Michael Davis
To the Kenyan families, school doesn't really matter because none of them are going on to college. Almost all of drop out of school and so, they're spending their time learning things that are important to them. Robert Sternberg

I've never studied the classics, but I'd like to. My teacher offered to show me how the Greeks were able to sculpt someone perfectly. From there, you can go off and experiment - sort of like jazz.

I was learning to track rhinoceroses in Africa and tracked right up on an animal that really I thought was going to kill me. Martha Beck
The generous wish to share with all what is precious, to spread broadcast priceless truths, to shut out none from the illumination of true knowledge, has resulted in a zeal without discretion that has vulgarised Christianity, and has presented its teachings in a form that often repels the heart and alienates the intellect. Annie Besant
I've definitely had my fair share at shaking my fists at the gods of Hollywood, but I'm learning that I cannot think that way or I will go crazy. Sarah Drew

I had a teacher in college who drastically changed the course of my life by telling me that he believed in me as an actor.

Taylor Schilling
I think the cardinal rule of learning to write is learning to read first. I learned to write by learning to read. Siddhartha Mukherjee

It is our children's right and it is also our best hope and their best hope for the future. Michael Morpurgo
My primary school teacher once poured a bottle of curdled school milk forcefully down my throat. Then I threw it up all over her suede shoes. I'd rather have drunk from the spittoon in Barney's barber shop. Paul O'Grady

In society, we have to earn other things of import like trust, respect, money, education, careers, status and etc., so naturally, we find ourselves attempting to earn love, acceptance and validation along with that.

It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge. Enrico Fermi

As a teacher you understand the difference or the definition of a Baryshnikov or a Gregory Hines, so teaching is really important and very necessary. Laurieann Gibson
My musical knowledge is so bad it's embarrassing. When composers discuss music with someone as primitive as myself, they have to talk about it in terms of senses and emotion, rather than keys and tempo. Jane Campion
So I'd be quite happy to have a three-hour Lincoln-Douglas-style debate with Barack Obama. I'd let him use a teleprompter. I'll just rely on knowledge. We'll do fine. Newt Gingrich
So I grew up in a very book-friendly environment and my education as a writer was reading. I think that's the best education. Reading, and taking from the people I admired. Seth Grahame-Smith

I remember my fourth grade teacher reading 'Charlotte's Web' and 'Stuart Little' to us - both, of course, by E. B. White. His stories were genuinely funny, thought provoking and full of irony and charm. He didn't condescend to his readers, which was why I liked his books, and why I wasn't a big reader of other children's' books. Louis Sachar
When you have kids, you can choose to make them like you, or become like them, and if you've got something that's going to change every six days or six minutes, you can decide to be as awake and alive and learning as they are. Jez Butterworth
I don't want to scrounge around and be homeless, and I want to finish my education. Callan McAuliffe

If we want our children to value education, then we must show our appreciation for knowledge. Brad Sherman
Give, give, give - what is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don't give it away? Of having stories if I don't tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don't share it?

I think higher education is over-regulated. Lamar Alexander
Well, I think that abstinence has its place as part of a comprehensive health and sex education curriculum. It would be wrong to exclude abstinence from a health curriculum, because there are some potentially very serious ramifications for early sexual activity. Kerry Healey

Education is the only billion dollar industry that tolerates abject failure. Geoffrey Canada

To attain any assured knowledge about the soul is one of the most difficult things in the world. Aristotle

Public education must be viewed from the lens of providing each child with the learning environment that best meets his or her needs.

Decision making in a democracy depends above all on knowledge and not just the intel available to presidents and policymakers. Nancy Gibbs

My advice to an aspiring actor would be to never stop learning or working for what you want. Nothing comes easy, ever, if you want something, you have to work for it.

I love graduation speeches. I have always loved them; I will always love them. Bruce Eric Kaplan

I think teaching should be an exalted profession, not a picked-on profession. Charles E. Schumer
The formal education that I received made little sense to me. Twyla Tharp
I was never one to go up to someone as a five- or six-year-old and say, 'Hello, my name's Paul, will you be my friend?'

Paul Merton
Education is the foundation for all we do in life, it shapes who we are and what we aspire to be. Creativity fuels innovation, and it's what all states should strive to instill in the next generations. Jim Hunt

Ramez Naam
The first and continuing argument for the curtailment of working hours and the raising of the minimum age was that education was necessary in a democracy and working children could not attend school. Grace Abbott
The buyer, the prospect, the customer expects you to have knowledge of their stuff, not just your stuff. Jeffrey Gitomer
You don't have to become an investment banker as a way of demonstrating that education has worked for you. But librarians have to believe in the values of high culture. Not just high culture but middle culture, low culture, kinds of exciting eye-catching crap of all kinds. Everyone needs that. Francis Spufford
I'm a big fan of regular school and regular education. I just learn better in a classroom where I can talk to other students. I want to go to prom and dances and have that social aspect. Nick Robinson
On television, you have an intimate moment with the camera. In theater, you are making something live with people there. My brain doesn't understand that you don't get another take ever. I'm finally learning on TV that you can do something over if you make a mistake. Kirsten Vangsness
To accuse others for one's own misfortunes is a sign of want of education. To accuse oneself shows that one's education has begun. To accuse neither oneself nor others shows that one's education is complete. Epictetus

For years I've wanted to write about the Australian countryside, but, like most Australians, I've only got a tourist's knowledge of it. I thought that if I disobeyed that basic rule of writing - write about what you know - I'd write a thin and inauthentic book. Kate Grenville
I can't explain something I saw on holiday on Holy Island when I was about nine years old, but do you know what, it could have been my PE teacher dressed in a monk's habit. I have no idea.

I receive emails from readers that both break my heart and give me a profound sense of connection. Several months ago, I received an email from a teacher who told me that 'Legend' was the first book one of her troubled young students had ever read to the end. He cried when he finished it. Stories like that stay with you forever. Marie Lu
Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing. Denis Waitley

I have this assemblage of small facts, which looks like intelligence but no real depth of knowledge about anything. That's why I'm an actor. Wayne Knight

The consequences of a lack of new knowledge is decades of stagnation: the next generation will be poorer than this one. Andre Geim
We aren't upset when Paramount makes a $200 million movie that flops, but if a charity experiments with a $5 million fundraising event that fails, we call in the attorneys.

When I was really young, I wanted to be a history teacher because I was obsessed with the past. Russell Tovey

I did not come from an academic background. My father was a smart man, but he had a fifth-grade education. He and all his friends were plumbers. They were all born around 1905 in great poverty in New York City and had to go to work when they were 12 or 13 years old. Leonard Susskind

I liked science very much. A science teacher in high school inspired me, and because of him, I began studying science at the university.

Education is the transmission of civilization. Will Durant
Certainly if I were to think in terms of a field that would have required a different mode of education, I think I would have leaned in the direction of being a therapist.

It was put to me as an almost holy act. Gioconda Belli

I was fairly solitary. I didn't like structured learning. People didn't seem to be my cup of tea. Dan Farmer

I think my biggest focus for myself is learning how to continue to get through the trauma that my father has caused in my life. Lindsay Lohan

June Diane Raphael
Learning is pleasurable but doing is the height of enjoyment. Novalis
I had a vision how it should sound and I put all my knowledge into this product and it is a fantastic product. People still tell me that I have the best musical thing there. Miroslav Vitous

It's feasible that we'll meet other sentient life forms and conduct commerce with them.

Dimitar Sasselov

When you're first learning how to do eyeliner, it's really hard to get both lids the same. A good tip for when you're putting it on, is to make sure your elbow is on a table. Make sure your arm's really stable. And make sure you have an eye makeup q-tip to get that really sharp line. Becky G
I hate the word 'rendering,' as it equates to 'pouring concrete' on ideas that demand continuing dialog. 'Trade secrets' imply hoarding of knowledge. Chris Jordan
The oceans are more or less in disrepair. Long Beach really is making an effort to acknowledge this, and that's a great place to start. I'm trying to spread at least the knowledge that it's never too early to take care of our oceans and our environment. Aaron Peirsol
My teacher, my great cello teacher Leonard Rose, was such a great cellist, and nurturing man, very patient. But I grew up not only admiring him, but obviously Casals, Rostrotovich, Jacqueline du Pre, and many others, including many of my peers and contemporaries. Yo-Yo Ma

For 13 years, I struggled with education and have only just realised that I was actually struggling to protect myself from it. I was trying to protect my soul. Michael Leunig

What is the benefit of fasting in our body while filling our souls with innumerable evils? He who does not play at dice, but spends his leisure otherwise, what nonsense does he not utter?

A month before graduation I got an off-Broadway job. Then I did some commercials, including one for MCI. You can only see half of me, but it paid well. Thank God for commercials. Lee Pace

I eat tons, three full meals a day, and I never go to the gym. When I was a child, my geography teacher said, 'You may be slim now but if you carry on eating like that, you'll end up being really fat.' Fortunately, I really don't think I've changed much in the past two decades, so that teacher was an idiot. Gina Bellman

With the stand-up comic on TV, whether it's Seinfeld or Cosby or Roseanne, more important than their knowledge of how to tell a joke is their knowledge of themselves, or the persona they've created as themselves.

What a blind person needs is not a teacher but another self. Helen Keller
There are no tests similar to SATs to tell us how much undergraduates know. State legislators, who appropriate billions of dollars each year to higher education, are naturally interested in finding out what they are getting for their money. Derek Bok
I studied psychology for a couple of years as a personal hobby, so you start learning about people and listening to your intuition, like when you you're feeling that people are not being entirely straight with you. Afrojack
I'm learning more and more to share creativity with the crew and actors. A film crew is more powerful if you listen to them, but it does make my job more tough because I have to listen. Denis Villeneuve

We have over 500,000 illegal immigrants living in Arizona. And we simply cannot sustain it. It costs us a tremendous amount of money of course in health care, in education, and then, on top of it all, in incarceration. And the federal government doesn't reimburse us on any of these things. Jan Brewer
I had become increasingly concerned in recent years about the lack of civics education in our nation's schools. In recent years, the schools have stopped teaching it. And it's unfortunate. Sandra Day O'Connor

The thing about the Islamic situation is we don't have a church. We don't have an ordained priesthood, which makes it a little complicated. But we do have a tradition of scholarship, and rules of scholarship. It's very much like any field of knowledge. Feisal Abdul Rauf
I taught in a small teacher's college for three or four years, at which point all the administrators got a pay raise and the teaching faculty didn't. David Eddings

If you asked somebody, 'what do you wish for in life?' they wouldn't say 'happiness.' I would have answered 'excitement, knowledge,' God knows - I mean, many, many different things, but certainly not 'happiness'. It seemed like a foreign concept to wish for something that specific and that singular. Connie Nielsen
Depend upon it there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones. Arthur Conan Doyle
We know everything about what you know and how you learn best because we get so much data. And education is the highest-stakes media product in your life. It's infinitely more important than your Facebook friends' status updates or your Google search results because it's your future. Jose Ferreira
I feel there is so much more we can do in improving education, making it accessible and understanding how technology can be a part of the solution. Jim Breyer
I woke up one morning with the knowledge that I had a brain tumor. It wasn't so much that I dreamt I had a brain tumor; it was like someone just poured the knowledge into my head. It wasn't like an image; it was just like knowing. It was so weird, which is why I paid attention. Mark Ruffalo
Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge which is power; religion gives man wisdom which is control. Martin Luther King Jr.

I had a fifth grade teacher who, as a very small way of trying to contain my class clown energy, gave me 10 minutes at the end of class every Friday to present whatever I wanted. A lot of the time, I did an Andy Rooney impression. I would sit at her desk, empty it, and just comment on what was in there. Andy Daly
The library is seen as a force for self improvement and the pursuit of knowledge. I fear that in many cases this is no longer true, if it ever was. John Redwood

My acting teacher in high school was really influential, and we still keep in touch. Brandon Jay McLaren
I wanted to win the gold medal and then go home and further my education in college.

With my ministry of light, part of what I do is work on the California Alliance For Arts Education. Sally Kirkland
A significant event for me was learning Hank Williams, reconnecting with his music's simplicity, which inspired me to inhabit the same territory. It's different, because I grew up on Led Zeppelin, The Stooges and punk, so in that sense I'm mutating country and folk more than a few degrees. Stone Gossard
What we now call school training, the pursuit of fixed studies at stated hours under the constant guidance of a teacher, I could scarcely be said to have enjoyed. Simon Newcomb

Science is the father of knowledge, but opinion breeds ignorance. Hippocrates
I'm still shy - I'm no good at my children's parent-teacher conferences, and I'm slowly learning how to ask for what I want. But I now know that I have a reserve of courage to draw upon when I really need it. There's nothing that I'm too scared to have a go at. Emily Mortimer

You go on these Internet blogs and people say the meanest things. I'm a normal person. Just because I'm in the spotlight doesn't mean I'm God's gift to the world. I'm learning and making mistakes just like every other 17-year-old girl out there. Hayden Panettiere
I feel that education needs an overhaul - courses are obsolete and grades are on the way out. Kent McCord
I tell students, 'If you are learning from YouTube I almost don't want to teach you because what you learn from YouTube it takes 10 times as long to unlearn.' They do an approximation of the centre of the note, an approximation of the interpretation, a cloned version. Kiri Te Kanawa
Democracy is a daring concept - a hope that we'll be best governed if all of us participate in the act of government.

Brian Eno

You know, if you're a human and living on the planet, it doesn't matter what you do; you are not immune to the challenges, the trials, the difficulty. And that fact that I happen to be a coach and a minister and a spiritual teacher doesn't mean anything. I'm still human. Iyanla Vanzant
You mustn't forget the circumstances I have been brought up in, the little education I have had. Isaac Rosenberg

I want to know why we exist and what I can do while I'm existing. Basically. it's learning how to exist, wholely, consciously. Growing up on fast food and television shows, you can easily forget to exist. You can even be treated as if you don't. Jason Mraz
Education is dangerous - every educated person is a future enemy. Hermann Goering
The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding. Leonardo da Vinci
