(Reb Yudel)

Quote of the Day

Nothing is ever as important as it seems when you are thinking about it, which means that scholarship is a structured form of overstating the case, whatever case you are arguing. (This is the engine driving all those “Mustard! How A Tiny Seed Made a Big Difference” books of the last 20 years.)

-- Danny Kahneman, as cited by Clay Shirky
