AUTHOR:Appendix
QUOTATION:Orthodoxy is my doxy; Heterodoxy is another man’s doxy.
ATTRIBUTION:“I have heard frequent use,” said the late Lord Sandwich, in a debate on the Test Laws, “of the words ‘orthodoxy’ and ‘heterodoxy;’ but I confess myself at a loss to know precisely what they mean.” “Orthodoxy, my Lord,” said Bishop Walburton, in a whisper,—“orthodoxy is my doxy; heterodoxy is another man’s doxy.”—Priestley: Memoirs, vol. i. p. 572.
