Famous quotes containing the word heads:

    Let us then examine this point, and say, “God is, or he is not.” But to which side shall we incline? Reason can decide nothing here. There is an infinite chaos which separates us. A game is being played at the extremity of this infinite distance where heads or tails will turn up. What will you wager?
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    We envy not the warmer clime, that lies
    In ten degrees of more indulgent skies,
    Nor at the coarseness of our heaven repine,
    Though o’er our heads the frozen Pleiads shine:
    ‘Tis Liberty that crowns Britannia’s Isle,
    And makes her barren rocks and her bleak mountains smile.
    Joseph Addison (1672–1719)

    How prone we are to come to the consideration of every question with heads and hearts pre-occupied! How prone to shrink from any opinion, however reasonable, if it be opposed to any, however unreasonable, of our own! How disposed are we to judge, in anger, those who call upon us to think, and encourage us to enquire! To question our prejudices seems nothing less than sacrilege; to break the chains of our ignorance, nothing short of impiety!
    Frances Wright (1795–1852)
