Edgar Allan Poe about logic (“The Mystery of Marie Rogêt”, 1842) - The mass of the people regard as profound only him who suggests pungent contradictions of the general idea. In ratiocination, not less than in literature, it is the epigram which is the most immediately and the most universally appreciated. In both, it is of the lowest order of merit.
