CnH friend sends this quote,
A human being should be able to plan an invasion, butcher a hog, con 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.
– Excerpt from the notebooks of Lazarus Lon from Robert Heinlein’s Time Enough for Love

“Well, what do you want me to do, post a sign in their cage?” she inquired (I think she actually said this sarcastically!).
