What We Believe
he critical habit of thought, if usual in society, will pervade all
its mores, because it is a way of taking up the problems of life.
Men educated in it cannot be stampeded by stump orators...they are slow to believe. They can hold things as possible or probable in all...
~ William Graham Sumner, Folkways, 1906
ritical thinking is a desire to seek, patience to doubt, fondness to
meditate, slowness to assert, readiness to consider, carefulness
to dispose and set in order; and hatred for every kind of imposture.
~ Francis Bacon (1605)
