“…there is no mistake so great as that of being always right.”
—SAMUEL BUTLER, 17th-century British satirist
Samuel Butler, (baptized February 8, 1612, Strensham,Worcestershire, England—died September 25, 1680, London) was an English poet and satirist.
He is famous for penning Hudibras, a burlesque poem and the first English satire to make a notable and successful attack on ideas rather than on personalities.
You can read it here, but be forewarned — it is 300 pages.
Butler saw in militant Puritanism as something beyond religion and more akin to political activism, hence Hudibras (hubris).
The New Testament James iii
2 We all make many mistakes. If people never said anything wrong, they would be perfect and able to control their entire selves, too. 3 When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we control their whole bodies. 4A ship is very big, but pushed by strong winds, and a very small rudder controls that big ship, making it go wherever the pilot wants. 5 It is the same with the tongue. While it is a small part of the body, it brags about great things it has never done. — New Century Bible
and then again in Psalms xii
Help, Lord! For God-like men are here no more. The faithful can no longer be seen among the sons of men. 2 They lie to each other. Their lips speak with sweet-sounding words that are not true. 3 May the Lord cut off all lips of false respect, and the tongue that speaks of great things. New Life Bible.
