Quote from ‘Grand Logic 1893: Division III. Substantial Study of Logic Chapter VI. The Essence of Reasoning’
…a belief is a controlled habit. Being formed, or continued, under control, there is an expectation and hope that it will last. Under the rational method of fixing belief, there is a hope that all men and rational beings will come to it, or would come to it, with sufficient workings of life.
