[1] FALSE Doesn't look like they are numeric. I'll try and convert them and check back if I have problems. Thanks Gunter!

be impatient with elementary studies or fight shy of them. If it were
possible to reach the ultimate truths without the elementary studies
usually prefixed to them, these would not be preparatory studies but
superfluous diversions."
