The Marketplace of Thought

huge_b_brown1

“I admire men and women who have developed the questing spirit, who are unafraid of new ideas as stepping stones to progress. We should, of course, respect the opinions of others, but we should also be unafraid to dissent – if we are informed. Thoughts and expressions compete in the marketplace of thought, and in that competition truth emerges triumphant. Only error fears freedom of expression.”

– Apostle Hugh B. Brown, “A Final Testimony,” from An Abundant Life
