71. Choice; Life; Uncertainty
"Life is not long, and too much of it should not be spent in idle
deliberation how it shall be spent: deliberation, which those
who begin it by prudence, and continue it with subtilty, must,
after long expence of thought, conclude by chance. To prefer one
future mode of life to another, upon just reasons, requires
faculties which it has not pleased our Creator to give us."
