Blupete's Weekly Commentary


May 23rd, 1999.

"Experience."

"I am part of all that I have met." - Tennyson: Ulysses.

"The most valuable result of many years is a nicely-balanced mind instinctively heedful of various errors; but such a mind is the incommunicable gift of individual experience ..."
- Bagehot: The English Constitution.

"[It] never has been the subject of dispute, either in philosophy or common life. ... it is from past experience that we draw all inferences concerning the future..."
- Hume.

"There is a wisdom in this beyond the rules of physic. A man's own observation, what he finds good of and what he finds hurt of, is the best physic to preserve health."
- Bacon.

"Things done well
And with a care exempt themselves from fear:
Things done without example, in their issue
Are to be fear'd." - Shakespeare, Henry VIII, Act 1.
