Ability

January 31st, 2010 · No Comments · Uncategorized

I just read this:

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a
hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build
a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate,
act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a
computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.
Specialization is for insects.

Robert A. Heinlein, “Time Enough for Love” (1973)

I have not read anything so encouraging in a while.
