“Generally speaking, the errors in religion are dangerous; those in philosophy only ridiculous.” –David Hume, A Treatise of Human Nature (1739-40), Of The Understanding, Part 4 Of the sceptical and other systems of philosophy, Sect. 7 Conclusion of this book

“Most people would die sooner than think — in fact they do so.” –Bertrand Russell, The ABC of Relativity (1925), p. 166.

“Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.” –Bertrand Russell, Commandment 7 of “A Liberal Decalogue”, from “The Best Answer to Fanaticism: Liberalism,” The New York Times (1951-12-16); later printed in The Autobiography of Bertrand Russell (1969), vol. 3: 1944-1967, pp. 71-2.
