Wikiquote:Quote of the Day/January 4, 2009

From Wikiquote

"Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so." – Douglas Adams

Simple: People are almost the only animals that can learn from what others do. Another interesting thing about people is that they do not seem to want to.
What it means: People have the ability to make great changes, but usually they are not willing to.
