    Reasoning quotes by:    

I walk on untrodden ground. There is scarcely any part of my conduct which may not hereafter be drawn into precedent.

    Author: George Washington

Religion is as necessary to reason as reason is to religion: The one cannot exist without the other. A reasoning being would lose his reason, in attempting to account for the great phenomena of nature, had he not a Supreme Being to refer to; and well has it been said, that if there had been no God, mankind would have been obliged to imagine one.

    Author: George Washington

The shortest answer is doing.

    Author: George Herbert

The secret heart is devotion's temple; there the saint lights the flame of purest sacrifice, which burns unseen but not unaccepted.

    Author: Hannah More

A sound economy is a sound understanding brought into action. It is calculation realized; it is the doctrine of proportion reduced to practice; it is foreseeing contingencies and providing against them; it is expecting contingencies and being prepared for them.

    Author: Hannah More

I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it.

    Author: Harry Emerson Fosdick

We settle things by a majority vote, and the psychological effect of doing that is to create the impression that the majority is probably right. Of course, on any fine issue the majority is sure to be wrong. Think of taking a majority vote on the best music. Jazz would win over Chopin. Or on the best novel. Many cheap scribblers would win over Tolstoy. And any day a prizefight will get a bigger crowd, larger gate receipts and wider newspaper publicity than any new revelation of goodness, truth or beauty could hope to achieve in a century.

    Author: Harry Emerson Fosdick

There need not be in religion, or music, or art, or love, or goodness, anything that is against reason; but never while the sun shines will we get great religion, or music, or art, or love, or goodness, without going beyond reason.

    Author: Harry Emerson Fosdick

As the eagle was killed by the arrow winged with his own feather, so the hand of the world is wounded by its own skill.

    Author: Helen Keller

People do not like to think. If one thinks, one must reach conclusions. Conclusions are not always pleasant.

    Author: Helen Keller

Smell is a potent wizard that transports you across thousands of miles and all the years you have lived.

    Author: Helen Keller

Toleration is the greatest gift of the mind; it requires the same effort of the brain that it takes to balance oneself on a bicycle.

    Author: Helen Keller
