QUOTATION: The Man who Disdains Revelation by Cardinal John Henry Newman

John Henry Newman
A man who fancies he can find out truth by himself, disdains revelation. He who thinks he has found it out, is impatient of revelation. He fears it will interfere with his own imaginary discoveries, he is unwilling to consult it; and when it does interfere, then he is angry.

--Blessed John Henry Newman, “The Self-Wise Enquirer”, Parochial and Plain Sermons, Volume 1.
