-- Anonymous

"Nomina si nescis, perit et cognitio rerum."
("Who knoweth not the names, knoweth not the subject.")
-- Carl von Linne (1707 - 1778)

"Knowledge is of two kinds: we know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it."
-- Samuel Johnson (1709 - 1784)

"No one can be really a master of any science unless he studies its special history, which again is bound up with the general history of humanity."
-- Auguste Comte (1798 - 1857)
