Obvious Yet Ignored

Well, just a quick share that is so obvious but yet ignored. The quote explains itself why it is the way it is.
It is more often from pride than from ignorance that we are so obstinately opposed to current opinions; we find the first places taken, and we do not want to be the last. 
La Rochefoucauld (1613-1680)
Maxims, "Reflections or Aphorisms and Moral Maxims"
Number 234
Translated from 1678 and 1827 editions by
J.W. Willis Bund and J. Hain Friswell, 1871
