Quote of the week

“The most fruitful lesson is the conquest of one’s own error. Whoever refuses to admit error may be a great scholar, but he is not a great learner. Whoever is ashamed of error will struggle against recognizing and admitting it, which means that he struggles against his greatest inward gain.”— Johann von Goethe, “Maxims & Reflections” (1833)
