Medieval Latin Admonition of the Day

Omnia disce, videbis postea nihil esse superfluum. Coartata scientia jucunda non est.
--Hugh of Saint Victor, Didascalion 6.3

Translated by Harkins: "Learn everything, and later you will see that nothing is superfluous. A meager knowledge is not a pleasant thing."
