DON’T FORGET!

If you are trying to persuade someone, keep in mind this insight from David Hume:

“And as reasoning is not the source, whence either disputant derives his tenets; it is vain to expect, that any logic, which speaks not to the affections, will ever engage him to embrace sounder principles.”

(As quoted in Haidt, The Righteous Mind, p. 57)
