"A man who has never gone to school may steal a freight car but if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad!" Theodore Roosevelt
Unfortunate how true the above statement often is. It only goes to prove how little, sanctioned education, the conferring of degrees, has to do with wisdom and truth. One might wish that the accumulation of knowledge alone might lead to wisdom and virtue. Alas! It is rarely the case. Too often it is the experience of life, generally the less pleasant aspects, which leads one in the path toward understanding and with the application of discipline and hard work, further up that path to wisdom. I don't want to get started on a general rant against higher education and the lack of virtue or truth that resides in those hallowed halls, so I'll stop now. What Theodor Roosevelt said is warning enough - caveat emptor (let the buyer beware!) Namaste!
