"For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don’t believe, no proof is possible."
quote by Stuart Chase (American economist and engineer)
I heard it for the first time in an episode of TV show “Criminal Minds” and I liked it. “Yes, that’s really true!”
I didn’t even know of him and zapped around through the articles about him.
I couldn’t find the source of the quote, but I found that “New Deal”, the name of Franklin Roosevelt’s economic program in the United States, is said to be borrowed from the title of Chase’s book “A New Deal”.
There is a big chasm between those who believe and those who don’t.
I will remember not to try to prove something to people in an attempt to make them believe.
