I am accustomed to inquire rather than to decide

From Aulus Gellius Noctes Atticae 20.1.9:

“Don’t ask me,” said Favorinus, “what I think.  For you know that I am accustomed, according to the rule of the sect that I follow, to inquire rather than to decide.”

“Noli” inquit Favorinus “ex me quaerere, quid ego existumeme.  Scis enim solitum esse me pro disciplina sectae, quam colo, inquirere potius quam decernere.”
