Howard Phillips Lovecraft, born August 20th, 1890. “To say to a man ‘your belief is foolish’ is not in any way akin to saying ‘you’re a damn fool”. Often circumstances are such that a superior mind may harbour a delusion while a very inferior mind (through the chance circumstance of never having been exposed to delusion, or through lack of enough imaginative sensitiveness to be deluded) will be absolutely free from it. In such a case a wise man will have a damn foolish opinion, while a damn fool will be perfectly correct.”HPL in a letter to Robert E Howard, November 5, 1933
