We learn something every day, and lots of times it’s that what we learned the day before was wrong.
See, life’s more of a process of elimination than of accumulation. You don’t become smarter by acquiring more knowledge, no, you become smarter by abadoning everything wrong you once thought right; slowly, piece by piece, one by one.
Smart people rarely know what’s right, they just mostly know what’s not right. Ask a scientist, they’ll tell you, it’s all about experimenting and hoping nothing blows up in your face.
William E. (“Bill”) Vaughan
