"There is no state more contrary to the dignity of wisdom than perpetual and unlimited dependence, in which the understanding lies useless, and every motion is received from external impulse.
Reason is the great distinction of human nature, the faculty by which we approach to some degree of association with celestial intelligences;
but as the excellence of every power appears only in its operations, not to have reason, and to have it useless and unemployed, is nearly the same." -- Samuel Johnson
