Confidence in others’ honesty is no light testimony of one’s own integrity.
Seek not the favor of the multitude; it is seldom got by honest and lawful means. But seek the testimony of few; and number not voices, but weigh them.
Testimony gives something to be interpreted.
Testimony should be a philosophical problem and not limited to legal or historical contexts where it refers to the account of a witness who reports what he has seen.
Testimony demands to be interpreted because of the dialectic of meaning and event that traverses it.
