Quote of the Day (Oliver Goldsmith, on Crowds and Falsehood)

“But a compact that is false between two men is equally so between an hundred, or an hundred thousand; for as ten millions of circles can never make a square, so the united voice of myriads cannot lend the smallest foundation to falsehood.”—Anglo-Irish novelist-poet-playwright Oliver Goldsmith (1728-1774), The Vicar of Wakefield (1766)
