More Quotes

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

From the Laziness that is contented with half-truth,
From the Arrogance that thinks it knows all truth,
Lord, deliver me.

The society which scorns excellence in plumbing as a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because it is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy... neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water."
- John W. Gardner

Reason is the greatest enemy that faith has: it never comes to the aid of spiritual things, but - more frequently than not - struggles against the divine Word, treating with contempt all that emanates from God. -- Martin Luther, Table-Talk
