Specialization is for insects

[ #24101 ]
I once saw the following text and it never left my mind (but I still have trouble remembering all of it, of course):

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects".

- by Robert Heinlein.

Thought I should mention it.
