Walt Whitman (1819–1892).  Leaves of Grass.  1900.

241. Tests


ALL submit to them, where they sit, inner, secure, unapproachable to analysis, in the Soul; 
Not traditions—not the outer authorities are the judges—they are the judges of outer authorities, and of all traditions; 
They corroborate as they go, only whatever corroborates themselves, and touches themselves; 
For all that, they have it forever in themselves to corroborate far and near, without one exception.
