Poet's Corner: The Road to Wisdom

The Road to Wisdom

The road to wisdom? -- Well, it's plain
and simple to express:
           Err
           and err
           and err again
           but less
           and less
           and less.

Piet Hein (1905 – 1996)

I ran across this poem in a recent book by Scott Rosenberg called Dreaming in Code. Pretty good book. It's about software development, but it's very accessible to non-programmers.
