E. O. Wilson (from Consilience: The Unity of Knowledge)
"We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom. The world
henceforth will be run by synthesizers, people able to put together the
right information at the right time, think critically about it, and make
important choices wisely."
"It is not the finding of a thing, but the making of something out of it
after it is found that is of consequence."
James Russell Lowell in My Study Windows
