I might not subscribe to a diverse array of ideals but I agree with F. Scott Fitzgerald’s viewpoint that one should at least be open.
Here’s what he said:
“The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time and retain the ability to function.”
My high school baseball coach used to tell us “don’t copy the way one person swings or throws — take bits and pieces that you like from everyone and apply it to your own self.”
I think the same thing applies here.
