Augean Stables

Morris Cohen was once approached by a student at the end of his introductory philosophy course. "Professor Cohen, you have knocked a hole in everything I've ever believed in," the student complained, "and you have given me nothing to take its place!"

"Young lady," the professor replied, "you will recall that among the labors of Hercules he was required to clean out the Augean stables. He was not, let me point out, required to fill them."
