Confounding Distinctions

Truth is that view or theory of things which describes them as they really are.

It describes a man as a man, a horse as a horse, and never confounds the distinction between men and horses.

Error is any and every contradiction of truth, in much or in little.

The one is in its nature a unit. The other is in its nature multitudinous.

The devil gave his name correctly when he called himself legion—for there are a thousand wrong ways but one right way.

Frederick Douglass

  1. “It is always simple to fall; there are an infinity of angles at which one falls, only one at which one stands. To have fallen into any one of the fads from Gnosticism to Christian Science would indeed have been obvious and tame. But to have avoided them all has been one whirling adventure; and in my vision the heavenly chariot flies thundering through the ages, the dull heresies sprawling and prostrate, the wild truth reeling but erect.” (Chesterton, Orthodoxy)
