Something I Read...

"He made this nephew think himself finer than he was by judicious praise, yet more foolish then he was by minimizing the value of the evidence.  Like many another materialist, that is, he lied cleverly on the basis of insufficient knowledge, because the knowledge supplied seemed to his own particular intelligence inadmissible."

"It was so easy to be wise in the explanation of an experience one has not personally witnessed."
