76: He proceeds best who best adapts

by Danny James

Concede your theories and deductions, untested and incomplete. All your notions false assume and travel light if not arriving without, for we are not yet all the way through, to recall or predict anything with ongoing certitude. Admit revision; be malleable and daily renewed: our highest ideas are seldom our own, and may tomorrow we esteem a dissimilar view, beyond renown seeking ever what is true.
