A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, thinking, abstraction, generalization, and self-culturalization

Most people traffic in abstractions and generalizations because they are grossly incompetent at culturing their intuition or powers of evidency, refining it to grasp the Thisness (Haecceitas) of what is before them.  Thinking is like a Stradivarius that has more potential variations in how it is played than any human can finitely perform or capture.
