Is there such a thing as too much Knowledge?

Is there such a thing as to much knowledge? Last night as I laid next to my husband I found myself pondering this very question. It all started when he joined me in the room. He sat in bed next to me remote in hand. “What are you reading?” he asked“A book on Option Trading” I answered“Why?”“Well,” I said “I want to learn more about what we are doing.” I advised“But we are already taking classes and have a strategy. You learning more than what we need might just confused things, don’t you think?”“hmmm” was the only reply I could give as I went back to the book and pondered his question. I have always been a learner. I dropped out college and mostly autodidactic my education from then on.

Some are black teas from China, Africa, and India. Of course there is wonderful chai and rooibos teas from everywhere. There is mint tea—wonderful hot or iced.

Even in his own mind, Hank drew the words out.  “Yeah, Mother’s Day. You know a little consideration wouldn’t kill…”  “You’re right, Sis. You’re absolutely right. Sometimes I just forget. So busy … work … you know how it is.” He stammered out the rationalization knowing that his...
