Experience has repeatedly confirmed that well-known maxim of Bacon's that "a little philosophy inclineth a man's mind to atheism, but depth in philosophy bringeth men's minds about to religion."

I have the greatest difficulty not to step on them when I get out of bed in the morning and start moving around my room."
