Picking and Choosing

Walter Savage Landor (1775-1864), "Andrew Marvel and Bishop Parker," Imaginary Conversations:

Marvel. Then let us never open them. If they are true, we should receive them as they are; if they are false, we should reject them totally. We cannot pick and choose: we cannot say to the Omniscient, "We think you right here; we think you wrong there; however, we will meet you halfway, and talk it over with you."
