How to become a philosopher

From the side the professor watched the new year of philosophy-students take their places in the lecture-hall. "These idiots," he said.
"Why?" his assistant asked.
"Don't you see? They all want to be philosophers. They want to have great ideas and all that. But if you want to have a baby, you're not going to midwifery-school, now are you?"

Thanks... Indeed, I agree on that... Although this is hard to accept.
