Specialization is for Insects

I saw this on OneMan'sBlog today, and thought I would re-post it, as it gave me a lot of confidence and encouragement for all the various things I do...

In short, this quote let me know that it's okay that I do so many things.

That's comforting in a funny sort of way, and definitely good to have reinforced.

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, and die gallantly.

Specialization is for insects."

---Robert A. Heinlein from The Notebook of Lazarus Long
