„Knowledge does not keep any better than fish.“

—  Alfred North Whitehead English mathematician and philosopher 1861 - 1947

1920s, The Aims of Education (1929)
Kontext: For successful education there must always be a certain freshness in the knowledge dealt with. It must be either new in itself or invested with some novelty of application to the new world of new times. Knowledge does not keep any better than fish. You may be dealing with knowledge of the old species, with some old truth; but somehow it must come to the students, as it were, just drawn out of the sea and with the freshness of its immediate importance.
