Laura Riding on Big Data

"A Complicated Problem"

A complicated problem is only further complicated by being simplified. A state of confusion is never made comprehensible by being given a plot. Appearances do not deceive if there are enough of them. The truth is always laid out in an infinite number of circles tending to become, but never becoming, concentric--except occasionally in poetry.

(Riding, Laura,Anarchism Is Not Enough. 1928)
