Knowing is not enough
“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, German writer. His insightful quote fits very well with the theme of this meeting and with the mindset of many swine veterinarians. Knowledge and motives are of limited value unless they proceed to action.
DuBois offers three possible applications. The first is a radical proposal to address a large opportunity seen in the socioeconomic and geography information. The second is a way to apply the cultural information to our current work. The final application would be for our organization, the American Association of Swine Veterinarians to expand the membership internationally.
