... The person who, at any stage of a conversation, disagrees, should at least hope to reach agreement in the end. He should be as much prepared to have his own mind changed as seek to change the mind of another ... No one who looks upon disagreement as an occasion for teaching another should forget that it is also an occasion for being taught.More Mortimer Adler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I suspect that most of the individuals who have religious faith are content with blind faith. They feel no obligation to understand what they believe. They may even wish not to have their beliefs disturbed by thought. But if God in whom they believe created them with intellectual and rational powers, that imposes upon them the duty to try to understand the creed of their religion. Not to do so is to verge on superstition.More Mortimer Adler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In the case of good books, the point is not how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.More Mortimer Adler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
