Now see, If *I'd* said it, I would have used the same reasoning to *prove*
it was mine. Since I did a cursory search and nothing like it turned up,
I'll just credit you.
Here are related quotes that did turn up:
From Alexander Pope - the original source: "A little learning is a
dangerous thing; drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring: there shallow
draughts intoxicate the brain, and drinking largely sobers us again."
"If a little knowledge is dangerous, where is the man who has so much as to
be out of danger." ...Thomas Huxley
From Publilius Syrus (First Century B.C.): "Better to be ignorant of a
matter than half know it."
And, last but not least, from my favorite author, Terry Pratchett: "They
say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it's not one half so bad
as a lot of ignorance."
