Malebranche Quote for the Day

Care must be taken...to moderate the sensibility of our expressions in such a way as only to make the mind more attentive. Nothing is as beautiful as the truth, and we must not pretend to be able to make it more beautiful by painting it with sensible colors that are impermanent and have but passing charm.

The Search after Truth 6.1.3 (LO 417)
