Quotation of the Day for April 12, 2010
"Today our society places great emphasis on specialization and focus. Students used to go off to university with the idea of broadening themselves; now it has become a mostly vocational experience. Students use higher education as a means to develop a skill that will make them attractive to employers. We place so much emphasis on being good at what we do that we fail to realize that getting better at what we do might be best achieved by getting better at other--and wildly different--things."
- Garry Kasparov, chess player and politician, from his book How Life Imitates Chess.
