My Life

This way or that? | September 8, 2006

The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.
  – Terry Pratchett

Why is it that I can almost always argue both sides?  This quote reminded me of how often my opinion is swayed.  It makes me angry that I often don’t have an opinion at all, or sometimes I have a very strong opinion, but I can see the other side as well and that keeps me from arguing my side blindly.

Often times I’ll change my views if someone else presents a good argument that I have not thought of before.  I have never know anyone else to do so.  Does this make me wishy washy and floundering, or does it make me intelligent enough to not hold on to old notions upon receiving new and more enlightened information?

What do you think?

About author

I'm just a guy trying to get through this crazy thing called life. I set this site up to store quotes that I've heard, read or made up on my own. Some are from famous people and some are just things that me or someone in my presence said that rang out as "Quot-a-ble".
