The man who cannot believe his senses, and milking the cow of the world


Two brief thoughts about what you know:

“The man who cannot believe his senses and the man who cannot believe anything else are both insane.” — G.K. Chesterton

“We milk the cow of the world, and as we do / We whisper in her ear, ‘You are not true.’ ”  — Richard Wilbur, from his poem “Epistemology”
