Francis Bacon.    
  Hardly is there a similarity detected between two or three facts, than men hasten to extend it to all others.

  In nature it is not convenient to consider every difference that is in things, and divide them into distinct classes: this will run us into particulars, and we shall be able to establish no general truth.
John Locke.    
  Ranking all things under general and special heads renders the nature or uses of a thing more easy to be found out, when we seek in what rank of being it lies.
Dr. Isaac Watts.
