het brein van een dwaas verteert filosofie in dwaasheid, wetenschap in bijgeloof en kunst in pedantry. vandaar universitair onderwijs.

мозг глупца переваривает философию в глупость, науку в суеверие, а искусство в педантизм. отсюда и университетское образование.

ஒரு முட்டாளின் மூளை தத்துவத்தை முட்டாள்தனமாகவும், விஞ்ஞானம் மூடநம்பிக்கையாகவும், கலையை மிதிவண்டியாகவும் ஜீரணிக்கிறது. எனவே பல்கலைக்கழக கல்வி.
