Quote by John Burroughs
It is always easier to believe than to deny. Our minds are naturally affirmative.
This quote suggests that human beings have a tendency to find it easier to believe in things rather than deny them. Our natural inclination is towards affirmation, seeking validation and acceptance of ideas. It implies that accepting beliefs or ideas requires less effort than questioning or denying them, as our minds gravitate towards finding agreement or consensus. This quote highlights the cognitive bias towards affirmation and the potential challenge in critically evaluating or denying beliefs.
Reality is what we take to be true. What we take to be true is what we believe. What we believe is based upon our perceptions. What we perceive depends upon what we look for. What we look for depends upon what we think. What we think depends upon what we perceive. What we perceive determines what we believe. What we believe determines what we take to be true. what we take to be true is our reality.
