Goya's commentary:
In all sciences there are quacks who know everything without having studied a word and have a remedy for everything. You should not trust a word they say. The really wise man is always wary of making predictions: he promises little and accomplishes a lot: but the Count Palatine accomplishes nothing of what he promises.
