Truly reprehensible are they who would seek to profit by the continuing ignorance of others.  Equally contemptible are those who would always sneer at such ignorance, and, even any striving by others to overcome this disadvantage, while, at the same time, carefully concealing their own lack of useful knowledge.  Commerce, education, and society-at-large, are all blighted by fostering such malicious attitudes.  Furthermore, consumer education should not be regarded as a form of industrial or commercial espionage, and, not all of the people need to learn the hard way, all of the time.  Surely then, the definition of a good business relationship is, a knowledgeable and confident customer dealing with a trustworthy merchant, and, as the occasion will, of course, demand, vice versa?

A Thought For The Ages: Einstein actually regarded himself as being a slow thinker, and, what was good enough for Einstein should be good enough for the rest of us.  So, we who follow humbly in our own turn must also keep thinking, no matter how falteringly, as long as we do continue to persevere... 

And, with gratitude to Graham Greene, author and novelist, for his candid, and to lesser scribbling or tapping mortals, most reassuring statement, that 500 words was a good day!

Also, after re-reading Silent Spring, with great respect to Rachel Carson, for power and flow of writing on subjects that are never universally popular, but always needed confronting, both then, and even more so, now...

Plus, to Louis Pasteur, Wine Scientist, who most wisely stated that fortune favours the prepared mind, which means that we must be prepared to learn from our errors, not just rationalize them, also inferring that learning, if properly applied, will soon build on itself.   Also, 'Reductionism is the Castor Oil of Reason'  (Anon or Trad)

Finally, with great respect to Charles Darwin, that terrestrial and intellectual adventurer extraordinaire, and true exemplar of patience and persistence, especially in relation to the Cirrapaedia, as well as Natural Selection and other similar matters...

Thanks are also due to particular libraries for help, plus use of books and other facilities, and also for those special bookshop opportunities to browse and buy books as well:

In Dunedin, New Zealand: Otago University Science Library and University Bookshop, and Dunedin Public Library, also Scribes Bookshop.  In NSW, Australia: Goulburn and Mosman Public Libraries, Sophie's Books, Moss Vale, and Basement Books, Sydney.  Throughout the years, in many places, other herein unnamed libraries and bookshops have also been been fascinating and fulfilling destinations, of course...

Those who do ask a question may be fools for five minutes, those who will not ask questions are fools forever  (China, trad. )

Long Live Libraries, Librarians, Bookshops, Booksales, A Free Internet, plus Comparative & Other Liberal Education Opportunities!
