David Hume

David Hume

was a Scottish philosopher, historian, economist, and essayist, known especially for his philosophical empiricism and skepticism
Among well bred people a mutual deference is affected, contempt for others is disguised; authority concealed; attention given to each in his turn; and an easy stream of conversation maintained without vehemence, without interruption, without eagerness for victory, and without any airs of superiority.
