Fanatics are picturesque, mankind would rather see gestures than listen to reasons.
What is objectionable, what is dangerous about extremists is not that they are extreme, but that they are intolerant. The evil is not what they say about their cause, but what they say about their opponents.
The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so sure of themselves and wiser people so full of doubt.
You have to quit confusing a madness with a mission.
