  1. Which is actually not his quote. It’s part of a famous quote (one of my favorites) by Konrad Lorenz:

    “Every man gets a narrower and narrower field of knowledge in which he must be an expert in order to compete with other people. The specialist knows more and more about less and less and finally knows everything about nothing.”
