Arthur C. Clarke Quote


Picture Quote:



We have to abandon the idea that schooling is something restricted to youth. How can it be, in a world where half the things a man knows at 20 are no longer true at 40 - and half the things he knows at 40 hadn't been discovered when he was 20?  - Arthur C. Clarke
