"Nothing worth measuring can be measured.
  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."
                       --Marcel Proust

"...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, who, 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?
