The development of general ability for independent thinking and judgment should always be placed foremost, not the acquisition of special knowledge.  If a person masters the fundamentals of his subject and has learnt to think and work independently, he will surely find his way and besides will be better able to adapt himself to progress and changes than the person whose training principally consists in the acquiring of detailed knowledge.  Albert Einstein, OUT OF MY LATER YEARS
