Nobody expects to trust his body overmuch after the age of fifty.
Accuse not nature, she hath done her part;
Do thou but thine, and be not diffidentOf wisdom, she deserts thee not, if thouDismiss not her, when most thou needest her nigh,By attributing overmuch to thingsLess excellent, as thou thyself perceivest.
It is also a good rule not to put overmuch confidence in the observational results that are put forward until they are confirmed by theory.
So I have cultivated the vast garden of human experience which is history, without troubling myself overmuch about laws, essential first causes, or how it is all coming out.
