From Leonardo's notebooks:

The acquistion of any knowledge whatever is always useful to the intellect, because it will be able to banish the useless things and retain those which are good. For nothing can be either loved or hated unless it is first known.

Of course, in my case, I tend to retain far more of the useless stuff...
