Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., "Beliefs"

“We are all tattooed in our cradles with the beliefs of our tribe; the record 
may seem superficial, but it is indelible.  You cannot educate a man wholly 
out of the superstitious fears which were implanted in his imagination,
no matter how utterly his reason may reject them.”

 ~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., "The Poet at the Breakfast Table," 1872
