Wisdom

You must learn all things,

and the opinions of mortals in which there is no true warranty.

But nevertheless you will learn these things too – how what they believe

would really have to be, traversing everything.

~ Parmenides

Wit

Education….has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
