I agree, it's an awesome quote. But I think even more so when you apply it to external things. I had a fantatsic high school philosophy teacher that persuaded the class of two opposing philosophies on consecutive days. American media and politics really hammers in the illusion that there are two sides to every issue, and that you need to choose one.

Subtlety in worldview is so unfashionable these days.
