"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

Michelangelo, David (detail), 1504

Long experience has taught me this about the state of mankind with regard to matters requiring thought: the less people know and understand things, the more positively they attempt to argue concerning them, while on the other hand, to know and understand a multitude of things renders men cautious in passing judgment upon anything new.

Galileo Galilei
