Learners will inherit the Earth

“In times of change learners inherit the earth while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to work in a world that no longer exists.”

Chuck Allison quoting Eric Hoffer in C/C++ Users Journal March 2003.

I just stumbled across this quote and I find this to be incredibly true. Change is an ongoing process, and if you can’t adapt to the change, then you will be left behind.
