Quote of the day

"'[Ben] Franklin didn't educate himself for a successful career ... Rather, he educated himself because learning was joy to him, and he wanted to feel that joy as deeply as he could, expressing it to others, asking for and refuting information, always with the goal of adding to his storehouse of fact and learned opinion." - Eric Burns, Virtue, Valor and Vanity
