Thére iHre Bit few defects ill pérsetral thiiracteis if ituieeti it Be an iinifHeí^ectíon, which are condemned with more ti»gMt severity by the world, than inconsisteiicy in o^ion ftfld conduct if an nRlfeiduAi exhiMt different fectiltfeb tif the fefed, op qualities of the heart, wfifch Sfe not usuaU if found in fee «sme péraon, Snd whioh desft’O? fee harmony d his rtiaracter» he is neifeer deemed unible nor despised wrt Ihult ‘
for the incotogptHy. wrt Ihult it attributed to nature, or to fee misfbrttme of his education; and be is still esteemed as highly as the genertl merits of his character wtil justify Btrt when an inconsistency in omnioA or conduct hr discovered, the worla very kindly r^rds it as an infelliWe mark, either of felly or insin-cerityfand trekts H with decisire reprobation.
iBcsnsisteww is yjf two kinds—that which -consists ÍB a contrafection, or dis-agieement, between (wmons entertained
fee individual oJt the same time, or between fee ditferenl jiorts of bis creed— and that whkh consists in ft varhttion of bis present doctrmes froiii opinions pre-f iouily entertabied andtfefended.
That man most have improved but little by observation, who does not know, thftttke human mind is capable cfBoneSt/y «♦id drmly bdlie^iig tbe most ridbiuloils absoMfties nod palpable contradiGtichs. This kind of inconeistency is thereffpi^ no ckrtain evidence of bwincerity, of fraud, or of n design to practice an lmposiSon on other persons. It proves only the imperfection of oilr nature-^e imbocibty of fee human mind. It is oven »o certain -evideiice, feat the individuat who en-lerfetns the dbsurdity, or who is suppoaed toenteftain k. Is more fellíMé inbis judgment,'brwetktv minded fean ourselves, tvenfes fesetf is pecultaMy suscep^e of eitravigMit’eiTors In opintoo Bt conduct. That acuteness of sensibüby feid energy of feeling, which are fee usual companions of ft cfeir and strong understanding, and fee ntctsstry inceirtives to the ardor and, •c^rtcy nf pttftruit, wtihoUf which .pre-ein-isence otii rarely he attained, are very npt to delude and impose on fee judgments of l.h^B who possess feem.
K the contradfcltiui), or Incongruity of Bfdnion, be very*groSB aod palpable, rt is not to he presumed 'tha0it has been in-vrtifed and admmoed for dishonest purposes t for plausibility at least is to be eapected in aU fee ochemea of knavery tód imppiition. if the incon^Stency be less otwiotts and demonsfiifbler oandor would suggest, that the erit^ may poasi-Biy be ou olir own side; or at lenst, that H would not be very libcnrfand ingenuous» to impugn the motives and integrity of another, becanoe he differs from us on a doubtful q^uestion, or conceives that to he mtionai and consistent, in which we believe there is someth
thint contradictory. Whatever then may he ^ grade of the mconsi^ncy, which we discover in fee
creed, or in the present opinions df another person, we ou^ mther to consider it os an oocasion for fee^axercise of candor and liberality, or for astrieterecniti-ny into the grounds of our own Belief, than as a just cause of reproach and condemnation.
^utfeekindofinconsisteTicy, to which the greatest demerit is attached in public estimiiioQ, and the inmutatiofi of which is fee most Vehemently repelled, is that beftrcen ‘
whkh IS discovcreil
and fee past opinions and conduct of the Hdual. Ifi
individual. If the censure of the former kind be uqjust, surely in fels case it is more so. If it be not easenfial to form a just ftnd estimable and enlightened character, feai all his opinions and conduct at fee fonne period should perfectly har-tmwlie; ocrtaluly it is less necessary, that fee*"tenor of his opinitms and conduct should never cbfthge^-feat he should be tlm suaie yesterday, to-day. Hid forever, flat when a chaafe is feibovartd, m^es» verV oBVfoWfovd
there is some very
reason m it, fee wnvtd attrtbates it to
bilefested motives, and thai|^ feu indi-fidiftl wife intinouilQ^di conduct: or if be tou vnqttesfedlHflBku he |^icbud,1ie kf regirded áBfe^^te of nt and stablHty. la nid¡ indul|ed, feat the

niBde by fee most ihcurions, there are changes in opinion, as wrtl as udvtiiCM in knowledge, contínuaHy occurring in fee mind uf every Bnman being t and cau-dor wottM require, fesfl to feis natural and prolific source we feould always refer them, unless fee proofs of m* sincerity, or the marks of weakness and instabitny, are obvious and brresistiBle. To preclude every change of optnton

Inooaristency, as an evidence of tm-^profomient, is glorious instead of being shameful: H is glorious, as an evidence of activity and independence of mind^ Dviii eontradictionsaad incongruities in the same argument,fee «ame essay, or the sasMook, though proofs of its imperfec-tiojfe, ire not always to be liewed as pragfe of imbecility, or of wilful and dis-inguittous sophistry in the author.
