“If I know a spade is a spade, I’m not going to call it a shovel. But that said, I welcome new ideas and ways of knowing the world. Indeed, I’ve found that receptiveness to the views of others is one of the most important qualities a person can possess, and I strive to comport myself according to that belief.” -Kyle Farquharson
