Ben Franklin: “Every other sect supposes itself in possession of the truth”

9 July 2012

“Every other sect supposes itself in possession of the truth, and that those who differ are so far in the wrong. Like a man traveling in foggy weather they see those at a distance before them wrapped up in a fog, as well as those behind them, and also people in the fields on each side; but near them, all appears clear, though in truth they are as much in the fog as any of them. “

Benjamin Franklin

    A hard but important truth, I think.
