‘The whole of truth is never even remotely in sight. Let us labor humbly but passionately, gaining here an insight, revising there an assumption, jettisoning one error now and perhaps taking aboard a bit of weighty cargo later’.

- Felix Frankfurter, The Conditions for, and the Aims and Methods of, Legal Research (1929)
