There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true. The other is to refuse to accept what is true.

Søren Kierkegaard



  • Arthur Baker says:

    There is a third way to be fooled – to believe that someone has told the whole truth, when in fact they have been disingenuous and left out information which is critical to one’s understanding of the topic. This happens all the time when politicians open their mouths.

    And, now I think about it, a fourth way – to believe that a statement is entirely true, when in fact it is only partially true.
