—  Louis Pasteur, Context: Posterity will one day laugh at the foolishness of modern materialistic philosophers. The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the work of the Creator. I pray while I am engaged at my work in the laboratory. As quoted in The Literary Digest (18 October 1902)

„ If forty million people say a foolish thing it does not become a wise one, but the wise man is foolish to give them the lie.“

—  Bertrand Russell logician, one of the first analytic philosophers and political activist 1872 - 1970
Misattributed, W. Somerset Maugham, A Writer's Notebook (1949), entry for 1901 Sometimes misquoted as "If fifty million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing." Sometimes misattributed to Anatole France Note that Russell does say something similar in Marriage and Morals (1929): "The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible."
