|It is error only, and not truth, that shrinks from inquiry.
– Thomas Paine (1737-1809)
|It is a great error to be superior to others….It is such pride as this that makes a man appear a fool, makes him abused by others, and invites disaster. A man who is truly versed in any art will of his own accord be clearly aware of his own deficiency; and therefore, his ambition being never satisfied, he ends by never being proud.
– Yoshida Kenko (1284 1350)
