Ronald Reagan – The Notes

The truth must be repeated again and again because error is constantly being preached round about us. And not only by isolated individuals but by the majority. In the newspapers and encyclopedias, in the schools and Universities everywhere error is dominant, securely and comfortable ensconced in public opinion which is on its side. — Goethe Letter to Eckerman, 1828

Found in The Notes p. 79.

So, I’ve been reading The Notes, which is a collection of handwritten notes that Ronald Reagan kept. The book is essentially a quote book that has thoughts about different matters that were important to Ronald Reagan.

This one caught my attention.

I think Goethe had it right. I believe that the truth must be taught over and over and over again. We all forget things … even those things that are true and important. We must continually be on the search for knowledge and truth.

How do you go about it?

How do you approach it?

How do you find it?

You should think deeply about these things.
