Fantastic soup

Basic ingredients. Good for what ails ye.

"As a general rule, those who think they know everything about a subject really know very little about it; those who know most feel their lack of knowledge, and are always anxious to learn more."
— The Abstainers' Advocate (1894)

Around 1960, Harold Pullman Coffin cleverly rephrased this as: "The fellow who thinks he knows it all is especially annoying to those of us who do." There's a quotation website that annoyingly confuses this newspaper columnist with creationist Harold Glen Coffin. All of the quotations are Pullman's but the photo and the bulk of the bio is for Glen!
