Excerpt from The Ideas of the Day on Policy

Nay, their conclusions may have nothing to do with any principles whatever. We know well enough that a large part of our Opinions are not the issue of ideas. To a great extent they do not grow up from within, but are thrust upon us from without. Irrespective of any reasoning, our views are shaped by the in?uence of family or friends; by hereditary character; by what is vaguely but justly called the spirit of the age. In a thousand ways a bias may be given. Even those opinions which have sprung from reasoning, need not have sprung from ideas. They may have been inferred from certain facts, experiences, or assumptions. Or, again, they may have been warmed into life by imagery.
