Resemblances of things

We’re leaving child care. Lillian’s t-shirt has a pelican on it. We stop by at the front office, where kids can pick up a small round sticker as they depart.

“Look, this sticker is a pelican, just like on my shirt.”

“But this one has a frog in its mouth, and the one on my shirt has a fish!”

I found that I was fitted for nothing so well as for the study of Truth; as having a mind nimble and versatile enough to catch the resemblances of things, and at the same time steady enough to fix and distinguish their subtler differences…
Francis Bacon, 1605
