David Hume – Eloquence leave little room for reason

David HumeEloquence, when at its highest pitch, leaves little room for reason or reflection, but addresses itself entirely to the fancy or the affections, captivates the willing hearers, and subdues their understanding. Happily, this pitch it seldom attains.

Blaise Pascal – We show anyone that he is mistaken

Share this quote:
Blaise PascalWhen we would show any one that he is mistaken, our best course is to observe on what side he considers the subject, – for his view of it is generally right on this side, – and admit to him that he is right so far. He will be satisfied with this acknowledgment, that he was not wrong in his judgment, but only inadvertent in not looking at the whole case.
