[Xmca-l] In case you are listening to the virtue of the ignorant



Hello all!


Of course virtue doesn't make a sound, nor does it speak, but I figured the subject line might grab your attention. If so, then... voilá!


I found this very short article on Farnam Street about Einstein that may interest xmca folks:

by S. Parrish  12/17/14


What I like about the article is the necessity for Einstein to examine much variety in order to learn to discern what was possible to discard and what was important to regard.


I disagree more than a little with Charles Munger, because one man's folly is another man's gold. Or woman, as the case may be...


Kind regards,


Annalisa


P.S. As my year-end gift to the list I offer a link to Duke Ellington's Sugar Rum Cherry, so... merry merry merry clinks to overlaps and gaps! :)
