Quote of the day from yrs truly

Theory without practice is lame. Practice without theory is blind.
Mr. Gaar, my ninth-grade science teacher, kept a copy of the famous quote from Albert Einstein prominently displayed in his classroom: “Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.” Tonight as I was talking about the tension between theory and practice with some of Today's Young People, the above mutilation occurred to me. I like it better than the original.
