Reason is the test of ridicule--not ridicule the test of truth.
      - Bishop William Warburton

Reason is the glory of human nature, and one of the chief eminences whereby we are raised above the beasts, in this lower world.
      - Isaac Watts

Reason can no more influence the will, and operate as a motive, than the eyes which show a man his road can enable him to move from place to place, or that a ship provided with a compass can sail without a wind.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

Women never reason, or, if they do, they either draw correct inferences from wrong premises, or wrong inferences from correct premises; and they always poke the fire from the top.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

At the end of reasons comes persuasion.
      - Ludwig Wittgenstein

Reason's progressive; instinct is complete; swift instinct leaps; slow reason feebly climbs.
      - Edward Young

And what is reason? Be she thus defined:
  Reason is upright stature in the soul.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night VII, l. 1,526)

Reason progressive, Instinct is complete;
  Swift instinct leaps; slow reason feebly climbs.
    Brutes soon their zenith reach.
      * * *
        In ages they no more
          Could know, do, covet or enjoy.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night VII, l. 81)
