Drawing Conclusions


Even wisest man cannot answer until he knows question and all too often person is too busy answering to hear or understand question. We think we have all answers needed and we might, but sometimes we match up wrong answer with wrong question.

Very useful not to make hasty decisions or give hasty answers. Teacher of mine once said, “Do not draw any conclusions in pen.” This means we may need to change our answer and pencil much easier to erase.

In society today, it is often seen as mistake to admit not knowing but this is not case.
Greatest fool is one who thinks he knows but is wrong. Wisest man often one who admits he does not know but has open mind to reaching answer. Reliable captain gets ship into port via trusted route. Unreliable captain makes reaching destination of choice unlikely.
