“The best thing about my profession is that there’s no need to make any decision. Who’s to die… when… where… it’s all been planned by others. I’m a lazy person. I like people to arrange things for me. That’s why I need a partner”.

I began with physical anthropology. I was taught how to measure the size of the brain of a human being who had been dead a long time, who was all dried out. I bored a hole in his skull, and I filled it with grains of polish rice. Then I emptied the rice into a graduated cylinder. I found this tedious.
I switched to archaeology, and I learned something I already knew; that man had been a maker and smasher of crockery since the dawn of time. And I went to my faculty adviser, and I confessed that science did not charm me, that I longed for poetry instead. I was depressed. I knew my wife and my father would want to kill me, if I went into poetry.
My adviser smiled. ‘How would you like to study poetry which pretends to be scientific?’ he asked me.
‘Is such a thing possible?’ I said.
He shook my hand. ‘Welcome to the field of social or cultural anthropology,’ he said. He told me that Ruth Benedict and Margaret Mead were already in it-and some sensitive gentlemen as well."
