Keep out passion from your disputes, and in the management of all your controversies in religion.’ For though passion be useful both antecedently to the resolution of the will, and consequently to the effectual execution of its resolutions, yet it is commonly a very great seducer of the understanding, and strangely blindeth and perverteth the judgment: so that a passionate man is seldom so far from the truth, as when he is most confident he is defending it.
