What's up with scientists thinking everybody should be a scientist? Honestly, this quote is kind of dumb. As a writer and philosopher, I can alter it pretty simply:   
"Every kid starts out as a natural-born free thinker and imaginative philosopher, and then we beat it out of them by institutionalization and telling kids to simply believe what is taught to them. A few trickle through the system with their wonder and enthusiasm for questioning knowledge still in tact."   
Honestly, and no disrespect to scientists or Sagan, once you encounter scholars in a liberal environment you will find that scientists and scholars with a background in the sciences are the most close-minded scholars and professors out there. Their stubborn refusal for anything not to be accounted by science alienates thoughts about logic, ethics, or even why physics works and how the laws of nature came to be.

Because children don't want to go into sport, acting, become painters musicians , I like a lot of philosophical quotes , but some when you look at the meaning are kind of stupid

sometimes those pop culture scientists can say some itchy stuff. I don't wanna be a scientist, carl, don't be like some forceful dad, and no, de grasse, the senate should not be made of astronomers. Come on, guys, not everyone who changes the channel from your show or doesn't read your books asimov is way better anyway is supposedly a slave to the system with no brain.

Honestly, I have infinite respect for scientist like Carl Sagan, Nye, Hawkings, and Neil Degrasse Tyson. However not only the famous ones though. There are thousands of unsung scientist who have devoted their lives to the pursuit of new knowledge and bettering the world.

respect

I can't remember who it was but someone said that they believed schools attempting to verse us in many fields of knowledge poorly was ruining us for adulthood. We are taught to know every subject at a novice level and to love none of them. We should instead be able to focus on certain subjects we enjoy so that we could be proficient and effective at a few and thus much more productive later on.   
   
Not being forced mind you, the child finds the subject they enjoy most and they can then focus on those.

You might even say his brain is full of... Sagans of 						****					   
BTW a Sagan is (according to urban dictionary) a unit of measurement equalling "billions and billions"
