quotes from 'the true believer' - part 3

***
FROM THE "TRUE BELIEVER" AND THE BRILLIANT ERIC HOFFER ...
THE WRITER I'VE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO CONVINCE ANYONE TO READ



Once of the reasons I was able to identify who Barack Obama was and what he was doing so early is primarily (but not exclusively) because of this man.


On facts:

"It is the true believer’s ability to “shut his eyes and stop his ears” to facts that do not deserve to be either seen or heard which is the source of his unequaled fortitude and constancy. He cannot be frightened by danger nor disheartened by obstacle not baffled by contradictions because he denies their existence."  - Eric Hoffer, The True Believer
