felix qui potuit rerum cognoscere causas: a Vergilian title for a blog which will contain ideas new and old

The English translation of this title is, "Happy is he who has been able to recognize the causes of things." Ordinarily,  I might consider changing the "qui" ("he") to "quae" ("she") to denote my own gender, but I have decided to leave the Vergilian original unchanged for several reasons, including homage to Vergil and the idea of leaving the title generic.
