Robert Heinlein On Human Beings

Here's a very interesting quote I found about "What a Human Being is and does" by popular science-fiction author Robert Heinlein. After I read this, I started to appreciate myself a lot more :)

"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, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."
