MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

“Tis not knowing much, but what is useful, that makes a wise man.”  -Thomas Fuller

*******Congratulations!  You’ve mastered quantum physics!  Now what?  Are you a physicist?  No?  Then you probably won’t do very well by spouting off your knowledge of the “String Theory” and the like to the hot girl at the corner bar.  Do you know how to make her feel special without coming on too strong?  Probably not Mr. Science Hero, but learning a thing or two about women might score you some points in this situation.  All I’m saying is, knowing everything about everything since the dawn of mankind will indeed impress people, but what do you know about PEOPLE?  It wouldn’t hurt to read a book or take a course in interpersonal communications, for if you’re not a hermit, it would behoove you to do so if you intend to lead a life filled with quality and not just quantity ($$$ & ###).  Cha-ching?  The wise don’t know everything about EVERYTHING, they know every important thing about everything truly important.*******
