POSITIVENESS
[ Also see Bigotry Confidence Decision Dogmatism Doubt Fanaticism Firmness Oaths Resolution ]

The most positive men are the most credulous, since they most believe themselves, and advise most with their falsest flatterer and worst enemy--their own self-love.
      - Alexander Pope

Positiveness is a most absurd foible. If you are in the right, it lessens your triumph; if in the wrong, it adds shame to your defeat.
      - Laurence Sterne

Positiveness is a good quality for preachers and orators, because whoever would obtrude his thoughts and reasons upon a multitude will convince others the more, as he appears convinced himself.
      - Jonathan Swift

They can, who think they can.
  [Lat., Possunt, quia posse videntur.]
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil)

Every one of his opinions appears to himself to be written with sunbeams.
      - Isaac Watts
