Principium Volume I, Book 6, Quote 733, 734, and End Statement

733. (3-23-2010) An early writer on English constitution, Sir John Fortescue, chief justice of the King’s Bench, argued in the years 1469-71 that English law was fundamentally unaltered since antiquity.

The End of Principium Volume I - My Statement

As I have filled yet another book with what I consider valuable information, I have come to the conclusion that if we do not give ourselves the education we desire or deserve, someone else will give us or determine for us what our education and life shall be. These studies have become my second more intense and far reaching college education, an education spanning and encompassing the ages, philosophies, and wisdom of many, many wise men and women. That I might more fully understand the current state, the foundation of which rest on the past history of man, and from which the future shall be affected.
