The specialist serves as a striking concrete example of the species, making clear to us the radical nature of the novelty. For, previously, men could be divided simply into the learned and the ignorant, those more or less the one, and those more or less the other. But your specialist cannot be brought in under either of these two categories. He is not learned , for he is formally ignorant of all that does not enter into his speciality; but neither is he ignorant, because he is "a scientist," and "knows" very well his own tiny portion of the universe. We shall have to say that he is a learned ignoramus, which is a very serious matter, as it implies that he is a person who is ignorant, not in the fashion of the ignorant man, but with an the petulance of one who is learned in his own special line.

 
Jose Ortega y Gasset
 

Give me a house furnished with books rather than furniture! Both, if you can, but books at any rate! To spend several days in a friendís house and hunger for something to read, while you are treading on costly carpets, sitting upon luxurious chairs and sleeping upon down, is as if one were bribing your body for the sake of cheating your mind.

 
Horace Mann
 

First of all, whoever didn't want to be a member of this association or the other association, was branded, you know, like a dangerous individualist, you know, infected by the Western decadence, you know. So everybody joined. And everything is controlled and everybody is a member of some committee, because then their watchdogs placed in the committees can control everything, what this person says or how this person think[s], you know. It was... [Sighs] it was just ridiculous.

 
Milos Forman
 

It is the semi-learned who scorn the ignorant; the learned know too much about them for that.

 
Henry S. Haskins
 

Either you lead a life which is luxurious on the material level or you lead a luxurious life of God's blessings - one of the two you have to choose, the time has come.
