Quote from Frances Wright,

"An opinion, right or wrong, can never constitute a moral offense, nor be in itself a moral obligation. It may be mistaken; it may involve an absurdity, or a contradiction. It is a truth, or it is an error; it can never be a crime or a virtue."


Frances Wright (more quotes by Frances Wright or books by/about Frances Wright)

(1795-1852) Scottish-born lecturer, writer, freethinker, feminist, abolitionist, and social reformer
