[2] But there is this difference between the record of the rocks and the secrets which are hidden in language: [3] whereas the former can only give us knowledge of outward dead things—such as forgotten seas and the bodily shapes of prehistoric animals— [4] language has preserved for us the inner living history of man’s soul. 5 It reveals the evolution of consciousness.

Diagramming

[7] It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going.

Interested men, who are not to be trusted, weak men who cannot see, prejudiced men who will not see, and a certain set of moderate men who think better of the European world than it deserves; and this last class, by an ill- judged deliberation, will be the cause of more calamities to this Continent than all the other three.

  1. You’re deciding whether to buy a computer from Cut-Rate or Enormity. Both models perform identically. There’s a 85 percent probability that either machine will need repair over the period you’ll keep it. The Cut-Rate model is $600 but will be a total loss (requiring the purchase of another computer for $600) if it ever needs repair. The Enormity Incorporated model is $900 but offers free repairs. Which should you buy?
