We are not Homer,
Nor are we Galileo.
We are the product of a modern world,
And this comes with a joy and a sorrow.
The joy being that great multitude of knowledge available to us;
The sorrow being that we are obliged to learn it.

edit: I feel compelled to tell you that this note is meant as a commentary, and my own opinion does not parallel that of the last line. It's hard to discern sarcasm in online type.
