The great thing about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've been.

Willing to be wrong

Do not be afraid to contradict yourself. For enlightenment is a moving target.

Be willing to admit when you are mistaken. For that is how you gain valuable wisdom from the mistakes.

Take no offense if others say that you’re a hypocrite. Instead, consider that they may have a point, and use it to learn something about yourself.

Steadfastly devote yourself to truth. Yet keep in mind that there is more to the truth than what you can now see.

Let go of any illusion you may have that you’re infallible. Get beyond your own ego, and you’ll open yourself to profound truth.

Be willing to be wrong. For in so doing, you can discover what is truly right.

— Ralph Marston
