The Value of an Idea

“Now the value of an idea has nothing whatsoever to do with sincerity of the man who expresses it.  Indeed, the probabilities are that the more insincere the man is, the more purely intellectual will the idea be, as in that case it will not be coloured by either his wants, his desires, or his prejudices.”

~Oscar Wilde, “The Picture of Dorian Gray”
