Closed Mindedness Can Be Virtuous

“An open mind is really a mark of foolishness, like an open mouth. Mouths and minds were made to shut; they were made to open only in order to shut.” (Illustrated London News October 10, 1908)

“The object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again on something solid.” (Autobiography)

G.K. Chesterton

  • Dad said many times that God gave you two ears and one mouth. Seems like you should listen twice as much as you speak. A lesson I am still learning to this day.
