A commodity

“Universities are truly storehouses of knowledge: students arrive from school confident that they know very nearly everything, and they leave years later certain that they know practically nothing. Where did the knowledge go in the meantime? Into the university, of course, where it is carefully dried and stored.”

The Science of Discworld by Terry Pratchett, Ian Stewart and Jack Cohen (via jugglingeese)
