1093 : Richard Feynman (knowing birds quote)

You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird... So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing — that's what counts. I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.

Feynman has written tons of books, my favorite being “What do you care what other people think?”

Its first two chapters describe how his dad brought him up, and is easily the best lesson in parenting that I have read in my whole life.

If you have kids, please go read it, will be worth your while.
