[E D Clarke's Polymathy]
'"I have lived," said Dr. E. D. Clarke, "to know that the great secret of human happiness is this: never suffer your energies to stagnate.—The old adage of 'too many irons in the fire,' conveys an abominable lie. You cannot have too many; poker, tongs, and all:—keep all going."'
