Shakespeare had no question; corpse-munchers have little wit

Sir Andrew: "I am a great eater of beef and I believe that does harm to my wit."

Sir Toby: "No question."

William Shakespeare,Twelfe Night, Act I, Scene III

“The evil that is in the world always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence, if they lack understanding. On the whole men are more good than bad; that, however, isn't the real point. But they are more or less ignorant, and it is this that we call vice or virtue; the most incorrigible vice being that of an ignorance which fancies it knows everything and therefore claims for itself the right to kill. There can be no true goodness, nor true love, without the utmost clear-sightedness” Camus
