Phraselet No. 89

Alfonso the Learned modestly observed that had he been present at the creation he would have given God some useful hints for the better ordering of the universe. My own would be that our species is much too easily seduced by vast ideas, particularly in politics but also in the stock market, the encephalogram of the human race: Our hopes and fears for the future are reflected in those wiggly lines."

- John Train, The New Money Masters
