Quote of the Day: Mark Twain

On people's beliefs in religion and politics...

In religion and politics people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at but have taken them second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing.
