Unemployment is like a headache or a high temperature - unpleasant and exhausting but not carrying in itself any explanation of its cause.

In his garden every man may be his own artist without apology or explanation.
With respect to the two words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them.

If the words obtained so readily a place in the "Articles of Confederation," and received so little notice in their admission into the present Constitution, and retained for so long a time a silent place in both, the fairest explanation is, that the words, in the alternative of meaning nothing or meaning everything, had the former meaning taken for granted

Could I interrupt here, because there is an alternative explanation, which you are particularly well placed to examine. You know the argument that it is the alchemists in the laboratories who invent the sweet new kits.
Do not seek the because - in love there is no because, no reason, no explanation, no solutions.
Don't confuse hypothesis and theory. The former is a possible explanation; the latter, the correct one. The establishment of theory is the very purpose of science.
Everything has a natural explanation. The moon is not a god, but a great rock, and the sun a hot rock.
Explanation separates us from astonishment, which is the only gateway to the incomprehensible.
Facts which at first seem improbable will, even on scant explanation, drop the cloak which has hidden them and stand forth in naked and simple beauty.
Hopefully my music is medicine, some type of antidote for something or some kind of explanation or just to feel good.
