common wisdom

"The common wisdom says that people are not reading as much literature 
as they used to. Do you believe it?"

"Yes, I keep coming across this “common wisdom” too. In fact, I keep reading it. Perhaps I should read less worrying “wisdom” and more literature, as literature makes me believe and common wisdom makes me worry."

-Daniel Handler, Lemony Snicket in this interview with Walter Ryce
