In a prefatory note to his poem Absalom and Achitophel, John Dryden wrote the following words:

If you like not my Poem, the fault may, possibly, be in my Writing: (though ’tis hard for an Authour to judge against himself;) But, more probably, ’tis in your morals, which cannot bear the truth of it.

I am SO writing that at the top of my next seminar paper.
