Does his quote make you think or not? How do you feel about that?

“If you make people think they’re thinking, they’ll love you; but if you really make them think, they’ll hate you.”

~ Don Marquis ~ American humourist, journalist, and author, born on 29 July 1878

“Se fai credere alle persone che stanno pensando, ti ameranno; ma se le fai davvero pensare, ti odieranno.”

  1. I agree with the quote, it makes me think of how people like to virtue signal, joining causes that they don’t really understand but when they’re confronted by the actual issues they get self-defensive and angry because they don’t have deep knowledge about what they were supporting, just slogans.
