Man is not logical and his intellectual history is a record of mental reserves and compromises. He hangs on to what he can in his old beliefs even when he is compelled to surrender their logical basis. - John Dewey
While I don't know the context behind Dewey's quote, I certainly am trying to justify some of the compromises that I have had to make in the last few months. However these compromises seem insignificant compared to those that I might have to make in the next couple of months.
But, should I even consider making those compromises? Are they worth it? And how am I going to justify them when I have been known to take a public stand against them in the past? Or should I even bother justifying them? The answer to all these questions, is one that I know clearly - I DON'T KNOW!
I wish that times were better. I wish that things were different. I wish that I do not have to make any more compromises. I wish for a better future. I wish I was right. And I wish for an Easy Button to solve all my problems!
