Random quote: Descartes

This passage from Descartes says a lot about my approach to philosophy, and my philosophies in general. =)

I shall not say anything about Philosophy, but that, seeing as it has been cultivated for many centuries by the best minds that have ever lived, and that nevertheless no single thing is to be found in it which is not the subject of dispute, I had not enough presumption to fare better there than others had done. And also, considering how many conflicting opinions there may be regarding the self-same matter, all supported by learned people, while there can never be more than one which is true, I esteemed as well-nigh false all that only went as far as being probable.
