An honest and well affected mind

Luther at his rhetorical and provocative best!

I like not brains that can dispute on both sides, and yet conclude nothing certain. Such sophistications are mere crafty and subtle inventions and contrivances, to cozen and deceive people.
But I love an honest and well affected mind, that seeks after truth simply and plainly, and goes not about with fantasies and cheating tricks.

– Martin Luther, Table Talk CCLXXXV
