Some Wit, Wisdom & Bewilderment

Unless truth be recognized as public, - as that of which any person would come to be convinced if he carried his inquiry, his sincere search for immovable belief, far enough, - then there will be nothing to prevent each one of us from adopting an utterly futile belief of his own which all the rest will disbelieve. Each one will set himself up as a little prophet; that is, a little ‘crank,’ a half-witted victim of his own narrowness.
Letter to Lady Welby, 1908
