Where thou perceivest knowledge by Martin Farquhar Tupper

Where thou perceivest knowledge, bend the ear of attention and respect;
But yield not further to the teaching,than as thy mind is warranted by reasons.
Better is an obstinant disputant, that yieldeth inch by inch,
Than the shallow traitor to himself, who surrendereth to half an argument.
MARTIN FARQUHAR TUPPER, Proverbial Philosophy
