A quotation for today

William Neile (1637 - 1670)

I am sorry we should want any assistance to philosophy, since the Great Turk or the like kind of Hectors can have it may be 100,000 men to besiege a town or make a conquest perchance of less importance by much than to discover the use of the air or of the commonest thing in nature.
