Something to ponder in this time of politics

I said I wasn't going to talk about politics, and I won't.

But it occurred to me that, in a time when we are all striving to figure out the right way to vote (hopefully using both our brains and our consciences)--and to convince others to vote the same way--we might benefit from taking a moment to consider our own thought patterns.

G.K. Chesterton said,

It is not bigotry to be certain we are right; but it is bigotry to be unable to imagine how we might possibly have gone wrong.

--G.K. Chesterton

Whatever I end up voting, I shall spend a bit of time imagining how I might be wrong--to help me ensure that I am, in fact, doing the right things.
