I think back to what Landon said about heartbreak, that if you dont love the person, they cant break your heart. Hardin repeatedly breaks my heart, even when I dont think there are any more pieces to break. And I love him. I love Hardin.
I dont think it would have all got me quite so down if just once in a whilejust once in a whilethere was at least some polite little perfunctory implication that knowledge should lead to wisdom, and that if it doesn’t, it’s just a disgusting waste of time! But there never is! You never even hear any hints dropped on a campus that wisdom is supposed to be the goal of knowledge. You hardly ever even hear the word ‘wisdom’ mentioned!
But if you tell folks you’re a college student, folks are so impressed. You can be a student in anything and not have to know anything. Just say toxicology or marine biokinesis, and the person you’re talking to will change the subject to himself. If this doesn’t work, mention the neural synapses of embryonic pigeons.
