"What a man believes upon grossly insufficient evidence is an index into his desires -- desires of which he himself is often unconscious. If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it.

The origin of myths is explained in this way." Bertrand Russell 4.714285714285714 avg (0 votes) Rate this Quote
