Interesting words

"The first and last of all life's complicated circumstances, the presiding fact, utterly astonishing, even stupefying, is that we are wholly in the dark about everything. Blank ignorance is our portion. In reasoning from the experience of nature and ourselves, we have all the evidence there is. We can add none. There remains, then, the reasoning itself, which is philosophy."
W. Macneile Dixon
