“If you wish to become a philosopher you must not be disheartened by the first distressing discoveries you make in your study of human beings. To learn these thoroughly you must triumph over the dissatisfactions they afford you, as an anatomist triumphs over nature and his bodily disgust in order to become proficient in his calling.”

~ Nicolas Chamfort, Maximes et pensées
