"A University should house and it should honour anarchical provocation and the passion of uselessness, what is the most wonderful passion in the world. Uselessness... The notion that the useless is the highest form of human activity".

We learn by heart and not by brain. To memorize is to thank the text for what it has given. What is memorized can never be taken, only forgotten. Lest we forget.
