Quote from Thomas Henry Huxley,

"What are the moral convictions most fondly held
by barbarous and semi-barbarous people?
They are the convictions that authority is the soundest basis of belief;
that merit attaches to readiness to believe;
that the doubting disposition is a bad one, and skepticism is a sin."


Thomas Henry Huxley (more quotes by Thomas Henry Huxley or books by/about Thomas Henry Huxley)
