Attempting to be wiser than God made us . . .
“The greatest risk will result from attempting to be wiser than God has made us, and to outstep in the least degree the circle which is prescribed as the limit of our range.… [I]n our practical concerns intellectual ability should do no more than enlighten us in the difficulties of our situation, not in the solution of them.” – St. John Henry Newman
