I disbelieve in structured learning.

I believe one can be an intellectual without being a nerd, provided one has a private library instead of a classroom, and spends time as aimless (but rational) flâneur benefiting from what randomness cab give us inside or outside the library. Provided we have the right type of rigor, we need randomness, mess, adventures, uncertainty, self-discovery, near-traumatic episodes, all this things that make life worth living, compared to the structured, fake and ineffective life of an empty-suit CEOW with a preset schedule and ab alarm clock.

Antifragile, Nassim Nicholas Taleb
