                          And men go about to wonder at the heights of the mountains,
                                                                       and the mighty waves of the sea,
                                                                             and the wide sweep of rivers,
                                                                                and the circuit of the ocean,
                                                                            and the revolution of the stars,
                                                                       but themselves they consider not.

                                                              (Francesco Petrarca in Familiaris VI, I)
