Adam Grant – Changing your mind

“Changing your mind is not a sign of losing integrity. It’s often a mark of gaining wisdom.
Realising you were wrong doesn’t mean you lack judgment. It means you lacked knowledge.
Opinions are what you think today. Growth comes from staying open to revising your views tomorrow.”

She longed for tomorrow – Gustave Flaubert

“Deep down, all the while, she was waiting for something to happen. Like a sailor in distress, she kept casting desperate glances over the solitary waster of her life, seeking some white sail in the distant mists of the horizon. She had no idea by what wind it would reach her, toward what shore it would bear her, or what kind of craft it would be – tiny boat or towering vessel, laden with heartbreaks or filled to the gunwhales with rapture. But every morning when she awoke she hoped that today would be the day; she listened for every sound, gave sudden starts, was surprised when nothing happened; and then, sadder with each succeeding sunset, she longed for tomorrow.”
― Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary
