// by Marcus Tullius Cicero | Philosophy Department at St. Anselm College //

By doubting we come at truth.

To be ignorant of what happened before you were born is to be ever a child. For what is man's lifetime unless the memory of past events is woven with those of earlier times

There is nothing so absurd but some philosopher has said it.

Wise men are instructed by reason; men of less understanding, by experience; the most ignorant, by necessity; the beasts, by nature.
