    "Try your best, even if you don't know everything. After all, Noah's Ark was built by amateurs. The "Titanic" was built by professionals."

    FWIW

      but that doesn't mean you don't listen to them. You just don't follow them blindly.

      And if they tell you something that has been tried, has NEVER worked, and they keep insisting it has to work, it's supposed to work, it will work if you just keep doing it - that's not an expert. That's an ideologue. Or a con man.
