Books to Read

We are all capable of believing things which we know to be untrue, and then, when we are finally proved wrong, impudently twisting the facts so as to show that we were right. Intellectually, it is possible to carry on this process for an indefinite time: the only check on it is that sooner or later a false belief bumps up against solid reality, usually on a battlefield. ~ George Orwell
A great nation is like a great man: 
When he makes a mistake, he realizes it. 
Having realized it, he admits it. Having admired it, he corrects it. 
He considers those who point out his faults as his most benevolent teachers. ~ Lao Tzu
