It is equally important to avoid accepting any idea
merely because we respect that person's
other ideas or accomplishments.

I (Just after publication): The novelty is absurd
and subversive of Religion and Morality.
The propounder both fool and knave.

and will yield a full and satisfactory
explanation of things in general -
The propounder a man of sublime genius and perfect virtue.

things in general after all, and therefore is a wretched failure.
The propounder a very ordinary person advertised by a clique.

Explains as much as could reasonably be expected.
The propounder worthy of all honor
in spite of his share of human frailties,
as one who has added to the permanent possessions of science.
