Sa virkelig Einstein det?

Sa virkelig Einstein det?

Ikke helt. Sitatet lyder faktisk slik:

“It is not so very important for a person to learn facts. For that he does not really need a college. He can learn them from books.  The value of an education in a liberal arts college is not the learning of many facts, but the training of the mind to think something that cannot be learned from textbooks.”

Vi har lett for å sluke alt som ser for forlokkende ut og særlig et kult sitat. Jeg er særdeles enig i både originalsitatet og den forkortede utgaven. Men rett skal være rett og jeg har dessverre sett akademiske tekster med slike feil. Sjekk alltid sitater før du bruker dem.

Her er min kilde i dag:
