Wisdom

Since we were born as infants and made various judgements about observable things before we had full use of our reason, we are diverted from knowledge of the truth in many prejudices. It seems what we can be liberated from these only if, once during our life, we try to doubt everything in which we find the slightest reason for doubt.

~ Descartes, Meditations
