A Quint of Quotes #1


Fellow travelers,

Starting a new thing on the blog today: “A Quint of Quotes” from my collection.  Five quotes somewhat related to each other, but not exactly in agreement.  Enjoy!

“Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.” – Pascal (in 1670)

“People often use statistics like a drunk uses a lamppost; not for illumination but rather for support.” – Unknown

“When somebody persuades me that I am wrong I change my mind. What do you do?” – John Maynard Keynes

“Dogma does not mean the absence of thought, but the end of thought.” – G.K. Chesterton

“People are often willing to produce a lot of collateral damage if they can retain their theory” – Jordan Peterson

More next week.
