First Line: My reason is I, and your reason is you
Last Line: That it does not pretend, of itself, to decide.


MY reason is I, and your reason is YOU,
And, if we shall differ, both cannot be true:
If reason must judge, and we two must agree,
Another third reason must give the decree,
Superior to ours; and to which, it is fit,
That both, being weaker, should freely submit:
Now in reason submitting, is plainly implied
That it does not pretend, of itself, to decide.
