Ancient Wisdom Pointless Knowledge
I'm often surprised when someone younger than 1951 turns up for a Quirkeries quotes.
I'm always happy when a quote has some quiet humor in it.
But my favorite part of using quotations is learning about someone I've never heard of before, an ancient whose wisdom is still being heard.
I read last week if the ancient Greeks walked the earth today they would be many times smarter than we are, we dumb down everything, take the easy roads, and study hard at pointless knowledge.
I'm reminded by this card to never stop seeking wisdom.
