Quote from Soren Kierkegaard,

"Truth always rests with the minority,
and the minority is always stronger than the majority,
because the minority is generally formed
by those who really have an opinion,
while the strength of a majority is illusory,
formed by the gangs who have no opinion --
and who, therefore, in the next instant
(when it is evident that the minority is the stronger)
assume its opinion ...
while Truth again reverts to a new minority."


Soren Kierkegaard (more quotes by Soren Kierkegaard or books by/about Soren Kierkegaard)

(1813-1855) Danish philosopher
