Carl Sagan: "The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what's true."
I read this quote and 'consonant' jumped out at me.
I puzzled over it: 'consonant'. Did they mean 'consistant'? Consonant is a letter which is not a vowel, right? At least that's always how I understood it.
Carl Sagan is smart though, and I am smart enough to realize that there are a lot of things in this world that I do not know, and so off I went on a google search.
The third definition of consonant reads: 'in agreement or harmony with'.
PS: You're welcome.
