Famous quotes containing the word harris:

    The difference between faith and superstition is that the first uses reason to go as far as it can, and then makes the jump; the second shuns reason entirely—which is why superstition is not the ally, but the enemy, of true religion.
    —Sydney J. Harris (1917–1986)
