Some Thoughts On Common Sense From Various Authors

“Common sense is the most widely shared commodity in the world, for every man is convinced that he is well supplied with it.”

René Descartes

“A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason.”

Thomas Paine

“Common sense ain’t common.”

Will Rogers

“Better to shun the bait than struggle in the snare.”

William Blake

“It was not curiosity that killed the goose who laid the golden egg, but an insatiable greed that devoured common sense.”

E.A. Bucchianeri
