• Every time that a man who is not an absolute fool presents you with a
    question he considers very problematic after giving it careful thought,
    distrust those quick answers that come to the mind of someone who has
    considered it only briefly or not at all. These answers are usually
    simplistic views lacking in consistency, which explain nothing, or which do
    not bear examination.
