A Quote

I was reading a Harlan Ellison short story today (part of The Best American Noir of the Century) and saw this:
Do not fall into the error of the artisan who boasts of twenty years' experience in his craft while in fact he has had only one year of experience--twenty times.

It's not his quote--it's from Trevanian's novel "Shibumi"--but it made me stop and think. I've known so many people like this. I hope I'm not one of them.
