Quote of the day

The more highly developed men of our time do not want to be guided by a creed or a dogma; they want to understand. So it's not surprising if they throw aside everything they do not understand.; and religious symbols, being the least intelligible of all, are generally the first to go overboard. The sacrifice of the intellect demanded by positive belief is a violation against which the conscience of the more highly developed individual rebels. CW 4 - par 434
