Who does not give up an apology so claims an error forever as his own. 

The fool who is right is deaf, for his unwilliness to listen to the truth. 
The lay who might be right is dumb, for his unwillingness to set aside his pride.

The wise who is wrong apologizes, for in giving up his pride he gains the truth.
