A quote attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson. “If we could but see the secret motives that influenced the men of name and learning in the world, and the leaders of parties, we should not always find that it was the embracing of truth for its own sake, that made them espouse the doctrines they owned and maintained. . . a man shall never want crooked paths to walk in, if he thinks that he is in the right way, wherever he has the footsteps of others to follow.” (John Locke, Essay Concerning Human Understanding)

"To those who believe anything or everything could be true, the declaration of objective, fixed, and universal truth feels like coercion—'I shouldn’t be forced to believe something is true that I don’t like.' But that does not change reality. Resenting the law of gravity won’t keep a person from falling if he steps off a cliff." -D. Todd Christofferson
