“We must love them both, those whose opinions we share and those whose opinions we reject, for both have labored in the search for truth, and both have helped us in finding it.”
As I age I am certainly learning that I really don’t know much. What is it about your 20s that you think you know everything?
Then you hit your 30s and you’re realising that you really don’t know anything, but aren’t quite sure what.
I wonder what the 40s and subsequent decades will bring.
Reading this quote above, the core point of it is to love. Loving doesn’t mean you have to agree with others, but that you love them despite your disagreements. This is something I’m definitely enjoying much more in my 30s, that we can have relationships with others, have differing opinions, but that we can find common ground and still respect each other and our views.
Is that a sign of growing up? I hope so.
What have you learned recently that you know has to do with getting older?
