Lord Pococurante from Candide - Voltaire

This quote was added by lilactypist
"Fools admire everything in a celebrated author. I only read to please myself, and I only like what suits me." Candide, who had been taught never to judge anything for himself, was greatly surprised by what he heard; and Martin thought Pococurante's way of thinking was, quote, reasonable.
