Something of which I am guilty

"In fact there are handbooks for everything, and very soon education, all the world over, will consist in learning a greater or lesser number of comments by heart, and people will excel according to their capacity for singling out the various facts like a printer signaling out the letters, but completely ignorant of the meaning of anything."

Kierkegaard, "The Present Age" 88-89
