  "I highly approve the end and intent of Pythagoras's injunction; which is, to dedicate the first part of life more to hear and learn, in order to collect materials out of which to form opinions founded on proper lights, and well examined sound principles, than to be presuming, prompt and flippant in hazarding one's own slight crude notions of things, and thus exposing the nakedness and emptiness of the mind, like a house opened to company before it is fitted either with necessities or any ornament for their reception and entertainment."   Earl of Chatham.
