Quote of the week:   “There are found some minds given to an extreme admiration of antiquity, others to an extreme love and appetite for novelty; but few so duly tempered that they can hold the mean, neither carping at what has been well laid down by the ancients, nor despising what is well introduced by the moderns.”       ​       — Francis Bacon, Novum Organum, The Idols, paragraph 56
