Quote: Francis Bacon

For in conjecturing what may be men set before them the example of what has been, and divine of the new with an imagination preoccupied and colored by the old; which way of forming opinions is very fallacious, for streams that are drawn from the springheads of nature do not always run in the old channels.

-Francis Bacon, The New Organion [Book One], 1620.
