"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."
“If things do not turn out as we wish, we should wish for them as they turn out.”
“[I]t is rather the case that we desire something because we believe it to be good than that we believe a thing to be good because we desire it. It is the thought that starts things off.”
