" There is an inextinguishable hope in mankind that, in the end, their ephemeral affairs will be regulated by reason… An orderly procession from conception to death. Even vast power is looked upon as beneficent when it is regarded as an opportunity for the achievement of this. But it is absurd to expect men to define their objectives in terms of their capacities, & govern themselves accordingly. How should our artless ancestor have known that he desired to besome an astronomer, a bootlegger an architect or an aviator? There were no such animals; it was neccessary to invent them. Nor indeed were they invented; they emerged as activities before they became professions, & as professions before they became desires or ambitions. " - Oakeshott
