    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been.
    The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”
    -Issac Asimov.

    The bank of knowledge is full and is waiting to give rather than loan.
    It never closes and is overflowing with free riches beyond belief yet, only a few make it out of their mental beds to make a withdrawal from it.

    @Bobby Cole
    Tell me now, having failed Senior High School English, is that what is known as a metaphor?
