A Quote by Clive Staples (Jack) Lewis on christianity, conceit, devil, evil, god, greed, humility, lies, mind, morality, opposites, pride, teachers, vices, and virtue

The vice I am talking about is Pride or Self-Conceit: and the virtue opposite to it, in Christian morals, is called Humility. You may remember, when I was talking about sexual morality, I warned you that the centre of Christian morals did not lie there. Well, now we have come to the centre. According to Christian teachers, the essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride. Unchastity, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere flea-bites in comparison: it was through Pride that the devil became the devil: Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind.

A Quote by H. L. Mencken on discovery, errors, opposites, truth, and world

The world always makes the assumption that the exposure of an error is identical with the discovery of the truth - that error and truth are simply opposite. They are nothing of the sort. What the world turns to, when it has been cured of one error, is usually simply another error, and maybe one worse than the first.

A Quote by Hermann Hesse on opposites, truth, and words

In every truth, the opposite is equally true. A truth can only be expressed and enveloped in words if it is one-sided.
