I like that one. Got just the right dash of practicality and poetry.

This ones a bit funkier, but it's so true, and worth thinking of when you're prejudging:

“There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance - that principle is contempt prior to investigation”
-Herbert Spencer (1820-1903)
