„Education is what, when, and why to do things. Training is how to do it. Either one without the other is not of much use.“

—  Richard Hamming American mathematician and information theorist 1915 - 1998

The Art of Doing Science and Engineering: Learning to Learn (1991)
Context: I am concerned with educating and not training you.... Education is what, when, and why to do things. Training is how to do it. Either one without the other is not of much use. You might think education should precede training, but the kind of educating I am trying to do must be based on your past experiences and technical knowledge.<!-- Preface

Oliver Wendell Holmes photo

„A thought is often original, though you have uttered it a hundred times. It has come to you over a new route, by a new and express train of associations.“

—  Oliver Wendell Holmes Poet, essayist, physician 1809 - 1894

The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table (1858)
Context: He must be a poor creature that does not often repeat himself. Imagine the author of the excellent piece of advice, "Know thyself," never alluding to that sentiment again during the course of a protracted existence! Why, the truths a man carries about with him are his tools; and do you think a carpenter is bound to use the same plane but once to smooth a knotty board with, or to hang up his hammer after it has driven its first nail? I shall never repeat a conversation, but an idea often. I shall use the same types when I like, but not commonly the same stereotypes. A thought is often original, though you have uttered it a hundred times. It has come to you over a new route, by a new and express train of associations.
