Only 194 pages into “The Know-It-All”, I have found THE quote. You know the one. The one that makes you put down the coffee, sit back in your chair, and go, ‘hmm…’ The quote that you read when suddenly the skies part and you are standing on a hill, being told the meaning of life from a booming voice. The one that you would totally buy if it were slapped on a bumper sticker.
“Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.” Horace Mann
