[272] I desire, on the other hand, to warn those of my hearers who are of a mind contrary to these, in the first place, not to trust in their own opinions nor to regard as true the judgements which are pronounced by the lazy-minded and, in the second place, not to publish hastily their views on things which they do not understand, but to wait until they can find themselves in accord with men who have much experience of matters submitted to them for judgement;1 for if they will so govern their thoughts, no one can fail to approve their discretion.

1 Literally, “experience of things shown.” Others render “experience in epideictic oratory.”
