"Education is a method whereby one acquires a higher grade of prejudices," said author Laurence J. Peter. One of your top assignments in 2008 will be to prove him wrong. I hope that you will aggressively pursue a more authentic form of higher learning in numerous ways, from exploring the frontiers of your world to reading more good books to seeking out the company of original thinkers. I trust that as you expose yourself to novel data and expansive perspectives, you will get your mind blown over and over again.
I love this. I am as educated as most people wish to be (although hopefully not prejudiced), but like most things the more you know, the more you realize you don't know. I love original thinkers--bring 'em on!!! I want my mind blown :)
