Quote of the Day – Oliver Goldsmith on Learning

I’m off on a field trip for my Geology class today. Meaning a self-guided tour of some rocks. Since it’s in the Columbia River Gorge, i’m going to freeze off my bum. I was reminded of this quote and I laughed. 🙂

Let schoolmasters puzzle their brain,
With grammar, and nonsense, and learning,
Good liquor, I stoutly maintain,
Gives genius a better discerning. – Oliver Goldsmith
