It is hard to change our minds

From A.Word.A.Day:

No fathers or mothers think their own children ugly; and this self-deceit is yet stronger with respect to the offspring of the mind.
-Miguel de Cervantes, novelist (1547-1616)

There is some quote about when faced with facts contrary to our beliefs most of us will redouble our arguments.  I haven't been able to find the exact quote.  Does anyone remember it?
