He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them. But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side; if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion.

— John Stuart Mill

Rime of the Ancient Mariner

I just listened to The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge while reading along. An impressive poem! Download the audio book and view the complete text with notes if you want to.

Here’s a notable little excerpt:

O sweeter than the marriage-feast,
‘Tis sweeter far to me,
To walk together to the kirk
With a goodly company !– To walk together to the kirk,
And all together pray,
While each to his great Father bends,
Old men, and babes, and loving friends
And youths and maidens gay !

He prayeth well, who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast.

He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things both great and small ;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth all.

    Ben checked his credit card to make sure they only charged him for two of them. My guess is that someone new on the job messed up. They pack 10 mice to a box and maybe he thought it was 1 per box. Anyway, yeah they are logitech.
