February: A Thought

“One can in fact consider human intelligence in three distinct and often successive states. Man believes firmly because he adopts without going deeply. He doubts when objections are presented. Often he comes to resolve all his doubts, and then he begins to believe again. This time he no longer seizes the truth haphazardly and in the shadows, but he sees it face to face and advances directly into its light.”

– Alexis de Tocqueville
