: slow down, cowboy. You're saying the key is "to understand exactly how valuable anotherperson's [sic] idea is."?

: I don't know Spratley, you're opening yourself up to a lot of criticism. What about all those people who insist that we should ignore the value of other's opinions or those who steadfastly claim that the value of an opinion is irrelevant?

: I just don't know who to believe anymore.


Do you have to believe another in order to understand him? I think we just have to understand the idea another might want to present us, believing is a completely different thing. I never believe, but fevereshly try to understand.
