How Far Even in the Good the Half May Be More than the Whole.  In all things that are constructed to last and demand the service of many hands, much that is less good must be made a rule, although the organiser knows what is better and harder very well.  He will calculate that there will never be a lack of persons who can correspond to the rule, and he knows that the middling good is the rule.  The youth seldom sees this point, and as an innovator thinks how marvellously he is in the right and how strange is the blindness of others.
