"But if by digressions, we can reach new truth, what harm is there in making one now, so that we may not lose this knowledge, remembering also that we are not tied down to a fixed and brief method but that we meet solely for our own entertainment? Indeed, who knows but that we may thus frequently discover something more interesting and beautiful than the solution originally sought?" - Galileo
