„They overvalue courage forgetting that without knowledge it is only recklessness…Less bluff, more study.“

—  Epifanio de los Santos Filipino politician 1871 - 1928

Philippine Free Press. Manila. April 28, 1928.
Contexto: What I want to impress on our youth is the necessity of thoroughly preparing themselves for their life's work. As a rule they bluff their way through life, pulling plums out of life's pudding by hook or by crook. They seem to hold the notion that knowledge is not essential to great achievements as courage. They overvalue courage forgetting that without knowledge it is only recklessness... Less bluff, more study.
