clearness and distinctness

"In general the real philosopher will always look for clearness and distinctness; he will invariably try to resemble not a turbid, impetuous torrent, but rather a Swiss lake which by its calm combines great depth with great clearness, the depth revealing itself precisely through the clearness."
- Arthur Schopenhauer
On the Fourfold Root of the Principle of Sufficient Reason
via Tractatus Blogico-Philosophicus
