Famous Quote from Roger Bacon,

"There are in fact four very significant stumblingblocks in the way
of grasping the truth, which hinder every man however learned,
and scarcely allow anyone to win a clear title to wisdom, namely,
the example of weak and unworthy authority, longstanding custom,
the feeling of the ignorant crowd, and the hiding of our own ignorance
while making a display of our apparent knowledge."


Roger Bacon (more quotes by Roger Bacon or books by/about Roger Bacon)
