Clay III.45

Das plumpe Denken. The great German theorist wrote: "The main thing is to learn how to think crudely. Crude thinking, that is the thinking of the great. . . .  There are many whose idea of a thinker is a lover of subtleties. Crude thoughts, on the contrary, must be part and parcel of our thinking, because they are nothing but the referral of theory to practice. . . . A thought must be crude to come into its own in action."
