Counting and Measuring.  The art of seeing many things, of weighing one with another, of reckoning one thing with another and constructing from them a rapid conclusion, a fairly correct sum — that goes to make a great politician or general or merchant.  This quality is, in fact, a power of speedy mental calculation.  The art of seeing one thing alone, of finding therein the sole motive for action, the guiding principle of all other action, goes to make the hero and also the fanatic.  This quality means a dexterity in measuring with one scale.
