A HUMAN BEING SHOULD...

My friend Ken has this fantastic quote on his myspace profile. I haven't looked into the history of it yet, but I figured I'd post it here so other folks can see it.

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.

-Robert A. Heinlein


Pretty cool.
