LEIBNIZ: ON THE IGNORANT AND THE ABLE
[A IV 5, p540]
The ignorant have this advantage, that there are fewer grounds to doubt their good faith. But when I see able people from the Roman side speak against the Protestants in an insulting way, as if they had nothing significant to say, I have need of all my moderation and of all my restraint not to have a bad opinion of their heart.
