JOHN HALES ("THE EVER MEMORABLE")
English scholar and divine
(1584 - 1656)

Those things which we reverence for antiquity what were they at their first birth? Were they false?--time cannot make them true. Were they true?--time cannot make them more true. The circumstances therefore of time in respect of truth and error is merely impertinent.
      - [Antiquity]

Antiquity, what is it else (God only excepted) but man's authority born some ages before us? Now for the truth of things time makes no alteration; things are still the same they are, let the time be past, present, or to come.
  Those things which we reverence for antiquity what were they at their birth? Were they false?--time cannot make them true. Were they true?--time cannot make them more true. The circumstances therefore of time in respect of truth and error is merely impertinent.
      - Of Inquiry and Private Judgment in Religion
        [Antiquity]
