Credence Quotations

The path of sound credence is through the thick forest of skepticism. - George Jean Nathan
The path of sound credence is through the thick forest of skepticism.
George Jean Nathan

We don't really give enough credence to that time of life and to its troubles.
Julia Leigh

Emanuel Swedenborg

I think most people are aware of the garbage in the tabloids and don't give them a lot of credence.
