A Credulous Mind

“A credulous mind... finds most delight in believing strange things, and the stranger they are the easier they pass with him; but never regards those that are plain and feasible, for every man can believe such." -- Samuel Butler, Characters (1667-9)

Excerpted from Carl Sagan's Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark
