meaningful quote

|

I'm half way through Virginia Woolf's Orlando and a quote leapt out at me. It must have struck me as apropos of something current, but regardless the motivation, I wrote the thing down so that I could look up other references to it. No passion
is stronger in the breast of man than the desire to make others believe as he believes... It is not love of truth but desire to prevail that sets quarter against quarter.

I entered the final line of it into the search dialog and the first returned use was that of a gentleman on another blog who, last year had just finished Orlando and found this memorable quote. Tremendous food for thought, that.

This morning, I tried the entire line in the search field so I could locate the blog again for this post and, with the longer quote, the blog is the second entry-the first is a Google Books Result, an electronic copy of Orlando.
