Good sense, of all things among men the most equally distributed; for every one thinks himself so abundantly provided with it, that those even who are the most difficult to satisfy in everything else, do not usually desire a larger measure of this quality than they already possess. And in this it is nor likely that all are mistaken, the conviction is rather to be held as testifying that the power of judging a right and of distinguishing truth from the error, which is what is called is called sence or reason, is by nature equal in all men. The diversity of our opinions, consequently, does not arise from some being endowed with the larger share of reason than others, but solely from this, that we conduct our thoughts along different ways and do not fix our attention on the constant objects. For to be possessed of a vigorous mind is not enough- the prime requisite is to apply it rightly. The greatest minds, as they’re are capable of the highest excellence, are open likewise to the best and greatest aberrations; and those who travel very slowly may yet make far greater progress, provided they keep always to the straight road, than those who, whereas they run, forsake it.
