"I do feel that I am right about what I say, and
that people who disagree with me are wrong."
Much that you say may be true and important, but you have not yet given me sufficient reason to believe either. "In order to make music, you must know how to play; in order to make your facts speak truth, you must know what the truth is which *ought* to be proved." -- Samuel Taylor Coleridge
"[Knowing] the difference between falsehood and truth...is the height of wisdom." -Jose Saramago
Is Justified True Belief Knowledge? (Gettier)
Dead Greeks Talking -- Plato: "Shall we just carelessly allow children to hear any casual tales which may be devised by casual persons, and to receive into their minds ideas for the most part the very opposite of those which we should wish them to have when they are grown up? We cannot... Anything received into the mind at that age is likely to become indelible and unalterable; and therefore it is most important that the tales which the young first hear should be models of virtuous thought."
Some conversations -
To a cheese-maker, the world smells like cheese... "There is something in what you say, it must be admitted. But still... pursuing a single idea to its logical conclusion, to the exclusion of all others, can lead to insanity."
