Quote of the Day

Vector illustration of speech bubbles“A wise man makes his own decisions; an ignorant man follows public opinion.” Chinese Proverb

It’s always tempting to follow the majority view, whatever it is, but who says it’s correct? They could all just as easily be wrong. Just because a lot of people think something is so, it doesn’t mean that they have a monopoly on knowledge and/or common sense. Rather than simply following the herd, it’s much better to consider a situation carefully, weighing up the various possibilities, and then forming your own opinion or making your own decision. Think for yourself; don’t allow the herd to do your thinking for you.
