This ‘last post’ thing has become a bit of a habit, but for better or worse, I am about to do it again. Ah well, at least someone comments on my posts 🙂
My last post was talking about a feeling of responsibility to learn with a purpose, rather than learn for the sake of learning. Quite a while ago, I came across this relevant quote that has stuck in the back of my mind:
Knowledge is as wings to man’s life, and a ladder for his ascent. Its acquisition is incumbent upon everyone. The knowledge of such sciences, however, should be acquired as can profit the peoples of the earth, and not those which begin with words and end with words.
