proof

A Quote by Giordano Bruno on belief, change, majorities, mind, people, proof, truth, and wishes

It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.

Giordano Bruno (1548 - 1600)

I'm proof against that word failure. I've seen behind it. The only failure a man ought to fear is failure of cleaving to the purpose he sees to be best.

Euclid taught me that without assumptions there is no proof. Therefore, in any argument, examine the assumptions.

A Quote by Elbert Green Hubbard on criticism, greatness, lies, proof, resentment, and understanding

The man who is anybody and who does anything is surely going to be criticized, vilified, and misunderstood. This is a part of the penalty for greatness, and every great man understands it; and understands, too, that it is no proof of greatness. The final proof of greatness lies in being able to endure contumely without resentment.

A Quote by Edith Daly on earth, glory, god, miracles, and proof

We muse on miracles who look But lightly on a rose! Who gives it fragrance or the glint Of glory that it shows? Who hold it here between the sky And earth's rain-softened sod? The miracle of one pale rose Is proof enough of God!
