Quote: McNeill

We have to do the best we can with the language and concepts we inherit and not worry about obtaining a truth that will satisfy everyone, everywhere, and for all time
William H. McNeill, in the introduction to Plagues and Peoples, a fine book, inspired by Rats, Lice, and History, which is a very good book and a great title.
