Socrates on the importance of thinking and talking

We must never become  those who hate reason.
Socrates said; "It is a sad case, when a man discovers that some of his cherished beliefs are false and therefore gives up on finding the truth.  He should blame himself for failing to validate his belief, but instead he turns against thinking itself.  So the res of his life he goes on hating reason and speaking ill of it.... Let us not let into our souls the idea that perhaps there is no soundness in reasoning.  Let us think instead that we ourselves are not yet sound, and struggle to become better thinkers."
