Thomas a Kempis: "be ready also to hear the opinions of others"

Thomas á Kempis has some good words to say about hearing and receiving the opinions of others. At PlayFull, we think such receptivity is key to living a playful life. In a politically charged climate, these words are worthy of being practiced.

"But if Christ is amongst us, then it is necessary that we sometimes yield up our own opinion for the sake of peace. Who is so wise as to have perfect knowledge of all things? Therefore trust not too much to thine own opinion, but be ready also to hear the opinions of others. Though thine own opinion be good, yet if for the love of God thou foregoest it, and followest that of another, thou shalt the more profit thereby."          -The Imitation of Christ*
