IDEA I’M PONDERING
People will believe anything if enough people tell them it’s true.
It comes from a Chinese proverb that if one person tells you there’s a tiger roaming around your neighbourhood, you can assume they’re lying. If two people tell you, you begin to wonder. If three say it’s true, you’re convinced there’s a tiger in your neighbourhood and you panic.
Be cautious of what you believe. It’s not difficult to get three people to say something.
