The great and invigorating influences in American life have been the unorthodox:  the people who challenge an existing institution or way of life, or say and do things that make people think.

William O. Douglas

Associate Justice United States Supreme Court

Following my post yesterday, this quote, by coincidence, just showed up on my New Yorker page-a-day calendar today.  I love it when people agree with me.  Too bad I find it challenging to listen to people who don’t.

Unless I can convince them, of course, that I’m right.
