Bishop Berkeley on thinking & opinions

Bishop Berkeley

Berkeley (1685-1753) was born in the same year as Bach & Handel.

One of my all-time favorite quotes is from George Berkeley, an Irish bishop who was (along with John Locke and David Hume) one of the leading philosophers of the school of British empiricism:

“Few men think, yet all will have opinions.”

No one ever put it better.
