"Nothing worth measuring can be
Nothing that can be assessed is worth assessing"
--Wilde (in spirit)
"We don't receive wisdom, we must
discover it for ourselves,
after a journey through the wilderness, which no one else can make for
us, which no one can spare us, for our wisdom is the point of view from
which we come at last to regard the world."
"...if only freedom
is granted, enlightenment is
almost sure to follow. For there will always be some independent
thinkers, even among the established guardians of the great masses,
after throwing off the yoke of tutelage from their own shoulders, will
disseminate the spirit of the rational appreciation of their own worth
and every [one's] vocation for thinking for himself."
--Kant, What is Enlightenment?
