A somewhat advanced society has figured out how to package basic knowledge in pill form. A student, needing some learning, goes to the pharmacy and asks what kind of knowledge pills are available.
The pharmacist says, “Here’s a pill for English literature.” The student takes the pill and swallows it and has new knowledge about English literature.
“What else do you have?” asks the student.
“I have pills for art history, biology, and world history,” replies the pharmacist. The student asks for these, swallows them, and has new knowledge about those subjects.
Then the student asks, “Do you have a pill for math?”
The pharmacist says, “Wait just a moment.” She goes back to the storeroom, brings back a whopper of a pill, and plunks it down on the counter.
“I have to take that huge pill for math?” inquires the student.
The pharmacist replies, “Well, you know math always was a little hard to swallow.”

After graduating from high school, David moves away from home to study at a university. One of his letters home reads:
University i$ really great. I am making lot$ of friend$ and $tudying very hard. With all my $tuff, I $imply ¢an’t think of anything I need, $o if you would like, you ¢an ju$t $end me a ¢ard, a$ I would love to hear from you.
After receiving his son’s letter, the father immediately replies by sending a letter back:
I kNOw that astroNOmy, ecoNOmics, and oceaNOgraphy are eNOugh to keep even an hoNOr student busy. Do NOt forget that the pursuit of kNOwledge is a NOble task, and you can never study eNOugh.
