I'm sorry I've been mouthing off in class, but I think I've figured it out. The robot assumes that anything that sounds glib, but is logically untrue, makes a good aphorism.

"You know," I finally told my robot teacher, "I'd learn a lot more about making hand-carved wooden furniture if you did more than just spout bad proverbs all day."

"Ah," replied the robot teacher smugly, "but the best way to learn to make furniture, is not to learn to make furniture at all."

I'm going to the BRBB to file a complaint. BRB.
