Quotable #51: Asking For Reasons


“There is a way of asking us for our reasons that leads us not only to forget our best reasons but also to conceive a stubborn aversion to all reasons. This way of asking makes people very stupid and is a trick used by tyrannical people.” — Friedrich Nietzsche, The Gay Science, 1887
