EXPLANATION
[ Also see Teaching ]

A pretty hypothesis which explains many things.
  [Fr., Jolie hypothese elle explique tant de choses.]
      - quoted by Rt. Hon. Herbert Henry Asquith, 1st Earl of Oxford and Asquith,
        in a speech in Parliament as "a saying of a witty Frenchman"

Explanation separates us from astonishment, which is the only gateway to the incomprehensible.
      - Eugene Ionesco

I fear explanations explanatory of things explained.
      - Abraham Lincoln

For when any one explains himself guardedly, nothing is more uncivil than to put a new question.
  [Ger., Denn wenn sich Jemand versteckt erklart, so ist Nichts unhoflicher als eine neue Frage.]
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul),
        Hesperus (II)
