Quote of the day

“The essence of conservatism — from Burke to Hayek — is epistemological modesty — an awareness of how little we can know about ourselves, and how little we can plan. Because life is so complicated.”–David Brooks

 

And the corollary:

 

“If upon consideration, one can find no faults on one’s own side, then cry for mercy; for this must be a most dangerous delusion.”–C.S. Lewis
