Never Wrong



Wouldn't it be wonderful if you were never wrong?

Such a wonderful thing, it would seem, and so very, very rare.  Who, after all, is never wrong?

But then of course, scratch the surface and you'll find something quite surprising.  Anyone can do it.  It's the easiest thing in the world.  It's not rare, it's amazingly common.

People who are never wrong.  Never, not once.

Everything they see confirms exactly what they already believe.  They simply ignore anything that doesn't fit.  And if reality forces them to confront their beliefs, they simply discard reality as an annoyance, and keep on being... never wrong.

Only if you're willing to stop defending your dignity can you ever truly have any.  Only if you stop defending your beliefs can your beliefs ever be true.

Only if you are willing to be wrong can you take the risks that every worthwhile thing demands as a ransom.

Never wrong is also something else as well.

Nothing.
