Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations. 1989.
William Feather (1889–1981)
An education isn’t how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It’s being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you don’t. It’s knowing where to go to find out what you need to know; and it’s knowing how to use the information you get.
