"Men by nature long to get on to the ultimate truths, and will often

be impatient with elementary studies or fight shy of them. If it were

possible to reach the ultimate truths without the elementary studies

usually prefixed to them, these would not be preparatory studies but

superfluous diversions."

-- Maimonides (1135-1204)
