Common Sense
 
  Common sense is a phrase employed to denote that degree of intelligence, sagacity, and prudence, which is common to all men.
William Fleming.

  Common sense meant once something very different from that plain wisdom, the common heritage of men, which we now call by this name, having been bequeathed to us by a very complex theory of the senses, and of a sense which was the common bond of them all, and which passed its verdicts on the reports which they severally made of it.
Richard C. Trench.
