Mmmmm -70

Power belongs to him who knows

This is a very old axiom

Knowledge - the first step to which is the power of comprehending the truth

Of discerning the real from the false -

is for those only who, having freed themselves from every prejudice
and conquered their human conceit and selfishness, are ready to
accept every and any truth once it is demonstrated to them

Of such there are very few

The majority judge of a work according to the respective predjudices of its critics

Who are guided in their turn by the popularity or unpopularity of the author

Rather than by its own faults or merits
