Citáty Démosthenés

„The easiest thing in the world is self-deceit; for every man believes what he wishes, though the reality is often different.“

Third Olynthiac http://books.google.com/books?id=n4INAAAAYAAJ&q="the+easiest+thing+in+the+world+is+self-deceit+for+every+man+believes+what+he+wishes+though+the+reality+is+often+different"&pg=PA57#v=onepage, section 19 (349 BC), as translated by Charles Rann Kennedy (1852) Variants: A man is his own easiest dupe, for what he wishes to be true he generally believes to be true. As quoted in The Routledge Dictionary of Quotations (1987) by Robert Andrews, p. 255 There is nothing easier than self-delusion. Since what man desires, is the first thing he believes.
