I value intellectual honesty above all else. I'm grateful when people change my mind with a strong argument.

I'm fascinated by the fact that good ideas can seem so bad, and conversely, that bad ideas can seem so good.

I do try to live by this quote:

"It is never worth a first-class man's time to express a majority opinion. By definition, there are plenty of others to do that." – Hardy
