a warrant and a warning

Wendell Berry:

I think it is the rule that people inevitably destroy what they do not understand.

Sirach 3:21:

Seek not out things that are too hard for thee, neither search the things that are above thy strength. But what is commanded thee, think thereupon with reverence, for it is not needful for thee to see with thine eyes the things that are in secret. Be not curious in unnecessary matters: for more things are shewed unto thee than men understand.
