Quote of the day

"Do not feel absolutely certain of anything."

The first of Bertrand Russell's Ten Commandments for teachers, labelled A Liberal Decalogue. A piece of wisdom that most of us would do well to remember more often.

The fifth declares "Have no respect for the authority of others, for there are always contrary authorities to be found". I'd never had him pegged as a punk...
