I LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERY DAY. But there are six billion others who are learning also, which means that by the time I go to bed I know less of all there is to be known than when I awoke. It’s the principle of progressive relative ignorance and has to be guarded against… No wonder that the older I get, the less sure I am that I’m right about anything. So think about things. Ask questions. Learn all you can.”
