Citações/Quotes: Maimonides

“If anybody tells you in order to support his opinion that he is in possession of proof and evidence and that he saw the thing with his own eyes, you have to doubt him, even if he is an authority accepted by great men, even if he is himself honest and virtuous.
Inquire well into what he wants to prove to you. Do not allow you senses to be confused by his research and innovations. Think wel search, examine, and try to understand the ways of nature which he claims to know. Do not allow yourself to be influenced by the sayings that something is obvious, whether a single man is saying so or whether it is a common opinion, for the desire of power leads men to shameful things, particularly in the case of divided opinions.

       — Moses Maimonides (1135 – 1204), Medical Aphorisms
