The Thinker's Creed.

Limit your thinking to what to have for dinner.

Limit your observation to the water running out of the bathtub.

Limit your questioning to ‘Why does it always rain just when the laundry is nearly dry?’

Repeated overstepping of these bounds leads either to pointless wisdom or incipient insanity. In extreme cases it can be both, and then you gain a reputation for being weird and stupid and people stop inviting you to tea.
