“Perhaps it is reverence for knowledge that has fostered so many of my happy years of teaching medicine. And in medicine, one has the luxurious pleasure of being surrounded by many others who share that reverence. But sometimes, despite our reverence for knowledge, we forget; in a land of intellectual plenty, it’s good to be reminded from time to time: Learning is a privilege.”
