On Stoicism


“If anyone can prove and show to me that I think and act in error, I will gladly change it—for I seek the truth, by which no one has ever been harmed. The one who is harmed is the one who abides in deceit and ignorance.”


This quote encourages readers to not be ashamed at changing their minds. It references Cicero’s response to having his beliefs challenged and quotes Emerson to suggest that foolish consistency is unwise. It encourages readers to learn and expose themselves to wisdom, and to accept better alternatives when they are presented.
