Measuring Your Mind

“Something else an academic education will do for you. If you go along with it any considerable distance, it will begin to give you an idea what size mind you have. What it’ll fit and, maybe what it won’t. After a while you’ll have an idea what kind of thoughts your particular size mind should be wearing. For one thing it may save you an extraordinary amount of time trying on ideas that don’t suit you, aren’t becoming to you. You’ll begin to know your true measurements and dress your mind accordingly”.
