What’s reasonable?

I’ve noticed that other people often think they are reasonable even when I don’t think they are the least bit sensible.

George Eliot in her book Middlemarch reminded me that some people may think that my opinions are not as reasonable as I think they are.

Sir James, Eliot wrote, “did not usually find it easy to give his reasons. It seemed to him strange that people should not know them without being told since he felt only what was reasonable.”
