ACTION AND NOT KNOWLEDGE EXERCISED BY SCIENCE.  The value of strictly pursuing science for a time does not lie precisely in its results, for these, in proportion to the ocean of what is worth knowing, are but an infinitesimally small drop.  But it gives an additional energy, decisiveness, and toughness of endurance; it teaches how to attain an aim suitably.  In so far it is very valuable, with a view to all that is done later on, to have once been a scientific man.
