Irresistible Display

Books 001

If physicians did not have long gowns and mules, if learned doctors did not wear square caps and robes four times too large, they would never have deceived the world, which finds such an authentic display irresistible.

We have only to see a lawyer in cap and gown to form a favorable opinion of his confidence.

— Blaise Pascal, Pensees, 40, 41¬†
