Truth and understanding

Great quote I came across in my recent reading:

It is morally as bad not to care whether a thing is true or not, so long as it makes you feel good, as it is not to care how you got your money as long as you have got it.

From Edmund Way Teale’s 1950 book Circle of the Seasons.
