"You are what you learn... A person changes at a fundamental level as he or she merges with a particular field of knowledge.
If you don't like who you are, you have the option of learning until you become someone else. There's almost nothing you can't learn your way out of."
Scott Adams

"I want to specialize -- I want to learn more and more about less and less,
so that eventually I'll know absolutely everything about absolutely nothing."

"My pocket book is empty, and my heart is full of pain,
I'm a thousand miles away from home, just waiting for a train."
Jimmie Rodgers (1929)
