Truth versus Myth

Monday, June 30th, 2014

The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie–deliberate, contrived and dishonest–but the myth–persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.

–John F. Kennedy – Commencement Address at Yale University, June 11 1962
