Nothing is often a good thing to do, and always a clever thing to say.”   —   Will Durant

(Semi-Tough) Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/20/10

path to knowledge

Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.”   — Will Durant

(This one tripped me up for quite a while.  I thought the “Q” was the “E”, I thought the “L” was a “T”, and that either the first or fourth word was ending in “ING”.  I was a friggin’ mess!  But, I re-wrote the cipher on a pad and regained a fresh perspective.  I wonder if conservatives would disagree with this quote because of it’s positive use of the word “progressive”???  Today, guys like Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck would just right off a Will Durant as a communist or socialist.  How sad is that?)   — YUR
