“I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives.” – Leo Tolstoy
You need not be like most men (or women). You can be uncommon in your untempered and humble acceptance and profession of truth. To do this you must come to the point where you care more about your internal alignment with truth than you do about everything else on the outside. It really is as simple as that!
