Today's Nibley Quote

From "Nobody to Blame" CWHN 17:135:
Forty sparrows do not make an eagle, forty house cats do not make a lion, and forty survey courses do not make a scholar. Moreover, if you bring together forty men, each of whom knows a little Latin or math, the result is not the equivalent of consulting just one person with a good knowledge of those subjects.
This, of course, is the problem with crowd sourcing.
