No real belief, however trifling and fragmentary it may seem,
is ever truly insignificant; it prepares us to receive more of its like,
confirms those which resembled it before, and weakens others;
and so gradually it lays a stealthy train in our inmost thoughts,
which may someday explode into overt action,
and leave its stamp upon our character.

— William Kingdon Clifford
