In medio tutissimus ibis

I think the proverb above quoted—(in medio tutissimus ibis; thou will go most safely by taking the middle course)—is one of the most mischievous, one of the most pernicious, one of the most foolish that ever was invented in the world. I believe very strongly in extremes; and I am quite sure that all progress in the world, whether literary, or scientific, or religious, or political, or social, has been obtained only with the assistance of extremes.
