Rule and Corollary

Charles Sanders Peirce (1839-1914), Reasoning and the Logic of Things: The Cambridge Conferences Lectures of 1898 (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1992), p. 178 (note omitted):
Upon this first, and in one sense this sole, rule of reason, that in order to learn you must desire to learn, and in so desiring not be satisfied with what you already incline to think, there follows one corollary, which itself deserves to be inscribed upon every wall of the city of philosophy.
Do not block the way of inquiry.
