Quotable Quickie: Fool Me Twice, Shame On Me

“The senses deceive from time to time, and it is prudent never to trust wholly those who have deceived us even once.”

René Descartes (1596-1650)

I am fooled, therefore I am dumb? Nah, too pithy. Anywho, I don’t believe in the gross simplicity of Cartesian thinking, but dammit if Descartes wasn’t one intelligent S.O.B. (son of a Brochard, that is).
