I'm reading that as saying to take into account your instincts, as well as a priori knowledge.

Nice one...it definitely sounds familiar. Such a quote could have several sources. For some reason it sounds like something from one of Socrates works, such as "The Republic", but that's obviously not it. I'll have to do a little hunting thru my library it seems. It could be a variation from the Dao De Jing, but unlikely with the usage of 'conforming to reason' it has a more Confucian ring to it.
As far as the meaning of the quote goes, my own personal interpretation is that if one sacrifices his/her own belief/feeling on a matter to someone elses reasoning, he/she ultimately gives up a part of themselves to others. Thus, in a sense, going against the natural course that they should have followed if they had 'listened' to their own instincts.
Of course, I'm probable way off from the actual interpretation, but I choose to listen and follow my own instincts on this, so technically, I can't be 'wrong' in the traditional sense.
Back to you for your verdict/execution Kusojiji

Hmmmmm...

It might help to think about it in somewhat more practical terms.

Is that a quote from Taukan Soho, the priest that was a friend and mentor to Musashi Miyamoto?

Nope. At least 400 years before that fella was around.

I'll never get it...that's for sure.

This doesn't have to be a fast paced thing...just educational (so I can go out and buy it afterwards).

That is wisdom I've heard computer science majors use. The concept of a 'better error'.

not expecting thats the correct answer of what it means, but just wanted to throw that in for fun.

"Error in the midst of reason is when one is so convinced of his own reasonableness that he pushes his opinion forward, not to the extent that it will cause injury to himself, but to the extent that it may cause another man to lose his life.

Reason in the midst of error is when a man is about to lose his life and one comes to his aid without disclosing the thousands of mistakes that may be involved."
