Quote of the Day – John Seeley on Knowledge

I get a “this day in history” email as inspiration for the daily quotes. That way, if I have no personal inspiration that day, I have something to start my engine. I noted from that email, that on this day in 2003, the Wikimedia Foundation was announced, bringing more and more knowledge to the masses, without obligation. I’m a big fan, I’ve used many a Wikipedia page. Just don’t tell my instructors! 🙂

A grain of real knowledge, of genuine uncontrollable conviction, will outweigh a bushel of adroitness; and to produce persuasion there is one golden principle of rhetoric not put down in the books – to understand what you are talking about. – John Seeley
