Dogged Opinion: Henry Sidgwick

We think so because other people all think so.
Or because-or because-after all we do think so.
Or because we were told so, and think we must think so.
Or because we once thought so, and think we still think so.
Or because having thought so, we think we will think so.

Henry Sidgwick (1838 – 1900)
