On not believing everything you read

[...] By which it appears how cautious men ought to be of taking things upon trust from vulgar opinion, and that we are to judge by the eye of reason, and not from common report. - Montaigne, from Of Cannibals.

Don't believe anything as certain unless you have verified it for yourself. As to things spiritual, they require verifying ceaselessly.
