The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive. To put it more accurately... you usually don't use it at all. It uses you.
A State which has universal suffrage and a wide extension of the jury franchise, must qualify the people by education to rightly exercise the great powers with which they are invested.
In the meanest are all the materials of manhood, only they are not rightly disposed.
Henry David Thoreau
Hardly any human being is capable of pursuing two professions or two arts rightly.

Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Marcus Tullius Cicero
How easy it is to judge rightly after one sees what evil comes from judging wrongly!

Science is, rightly, searching for drugs to arrest ageing or to slow the advance of dementia.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
