Philip Jose Farmer

" A man's knowledge is like an expanding sphere, the surface corresponding to the boundary between the known & the unknown. As the sphere grows, so does its surface; the more a man learns, the more he realizes how much he does not know. Hence, the most ignorant man thinks he knows it all."
L. Sprague de Camp

"A process cannot be understood by stopping it. Understanding must move with the flow of the process, must join it, and flow with it."
Frank Herbert

"Experience teaches. Novelty distracts."
David Gerrold

"You learn by pleasure, you learn by pain."
Roger Zelazny

"A little ignorance can go a long way."
David Gerrold

"You live & you learn, or you don't live long."
Robert A. Heinlein

"But need alone is not enough to set power free---there must be knowledge."
Ursula K. Le Guin
