“If anyone can refute me – show me I’m making a mistake or looking at things from the wrong perspective – I’ll gladly change. It’s the truth I’m after, and the truth never harmed anyone. What harms us is to persist in self-deceit and ignorance.” – Marcus Aurelius
He who is passionate about the truth cares not when he is shown to be in error. In fact, he views such elucidation as a gift of the gods, whether delivered at the hand of a friend or foe. Correction, whether kindly or harshly delivered, is best met with appreciation.
