MENCKEN, Henry L. Quotes
(1880-1956), American author and editor
The public, with its mob yearning to be instructed, edified and pulled by the nose, demands certainties; . . . but there are no certainties.
I believe that it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. And I believe it is better to know than be ignorant.
