Das Halbwissen ist siegreicher, als das Ganzwissen: es kennt
die Dinge einfacher, als sie sind, und macht daher
seine Meinung fasslicher und überzeugender.

Half-knowing is more victorious than knowing in full: it knows
things to be simpler than they are and forms, for that reason,
opinions more easily comprehended and more convincing.
~Nietzsche
