Yeah, a paraphrase.
But for so many, it is true.
There is no shame in being wrong. There is shame in refusing to admit it, when someone points it out…Refusing to learn, or even BOTHER to learn where or when you went wrong. Of refusing to learn, or expand your knowledge. Of insisting that that which you believe is correct, even when the evidence causes doubt.
I don’t expect people to believe when it is pointed out that they have an error in their knowledge or assumptions….I DO expect them to investigate and learn and decide if they are correct or not. Failure to do so is childish. Assuming one is always correct is foolish.
We have all been guilty of that, I suppose. I certainly have….
But some of us grew up.
