Something to think about
It is no weakness for the wisest man
To learn when he is wrong, know when to yield.
So, on the margin of a flooded river
Trees bending to the torrent live unbroken,
While those that strain against it are snapped off.
A sailor has to tack and slacken sheets
Before the gale, or find himsel capsized . . . .
Let not your first thought be your only thought.
Think if there cannot be some other way.
- Sophocles - from Antigone
Only fools are certain and immovable.
- Montaigne -
