Quotes About Feeling Unsupported

Youve got to understand one of the tricks of the modern mind, a tendency that most people obey without noticing it. In the village or suburb outside theres an inn with the sign of St. George and the Dragon. Now suppose I went about telling everybody that this was only a corruption of King George and the Dragoon. Scores of people would believe it, without any inquiry, from a vague feeling that its probable because its prosaic. It turns something romantic and legendary into something recent and ordinary. And that somehow makes it sound rational, though it is unsupported by reason. Of course some people would have the sense to remember having seen St. George in old Italian pictures and French romances, but a good many wouldnt think about it at all. They would just swallow the skepticism because it was skepticism. Modern intelligence wont accept anything on authority. But it will accept anything without authority. Thats exactly what has happened here.
— G.K. Chesterton —
