|| When even the brightest mind in our world
has been trained up from childhood in a superstition of any kind, it will
never be possible for that mind, in its maturity, to examine sincerely,
dispassionately, and conscientiously any evidence or any circumstance which
shall seem to cast a doubt upon the validity of that superstition. I doubt
if I could do it myself.
- "Is Shakespeare Dead?"
|When the human race has once acquired a supersitition nothing short of
death is ever likely to remove it.
- Autobiography of Mark Twain
Let me make the superstitions of a nation and I care not who makes its
laws or its songs either.
