French
Ce sont la plupart du temps les erreurs qui ont constitué le fondement de la vérité, et lorsqu'on ne sait pas ce qu'une chose est, savoir ce qu'elle n'est pas représente déjà un accroissement de la connaissance.

German
Irrtümer bildeten schließlich meist die Fundamente der Wahrheit, und wenn man von einem Ding nicht weiß, was es ist, dann bedeutet es schon einen Erkenntniszuwachs, wenn man weiß, was es nicht ist.
