• Atheism ... that bugbear of women and fools ... is the very top and perfection of free-thinking. It is the grand arcanum to which a true genius naturally riseth, by a certain climax or gradation of thought, and without which he can never possess his soul in absolute liberty and repose.

    George Berkeley (1901). “The Works of George Berkeley ...: Philosophical works, 1732-33: Alciphron. The theory of vision”
