Common sense always speaks too late. Common sense is the guy who tells you ought to have had your brakes relined last week before you smashed a front end this week.

Thoreau, Henry David

23.
Common-sense is part of the home-made ideology of those who have been deprived of fundamental learning, of those who have been kept ignorant. This ideology is compounded from different sources: items that have survived from religion, items of empirical knowledge, items of protective skepticism, items culled for comfort from the superficial learning that is supplied. But the point is that common-sense can never teach itself, can never advance beyond its own limits, for as soon as the lack of fundamental learning has been made good, all items become questionable and the whole function of common-sense is destroyed. Common-sense can only exist as a category insofar as it can be distinguished from the spirit of inquiry, from philosophy.
Berger, John

24.
Common sense is the measure of the possible; it is composed of experience and prevision; it is calculation applied to life.

Stein, Gertrude

28.
Who is the most sensible person? The one who finds what is to their own advantage in all that happens to them.

29.
Nothing is more fairly distributed than common sense: no one thinks he needs more of it than he already has.
Descartes, Rene

30.
Common sense is in spite of, not as the result of education.
Hugo, Victor

31.
Common Sense is in medicine the master workman.
Latham, Peter

32.
Common sense is judgment without reflection, shared by an entire class, an entire nation, or the entire human race.
Vico, Giambattista

Science is a first-rate piece of furniture for a man's upper chamber, if it has common sense on the ground floor.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

Lincoln, Abraham

In the war for individual rights, common sense becomes the first and major casualty.
