CONVICTIONS / CONVICCIONES

 

Every man, wherever he goes, is encompassed by a cloud of comforting convictions, which move with him like flies on a summer day.” – Bertrand Russell

 

Cada hombre, vaya a donde vaya, está rodeado de una nube reconfortante de convicciones que se desplazan con él como moscas en un cálido día de verano.” – Bertrand Russell

*******************************************************************

 

Must one always insist on his own convictions to feel secure in any social environment? Wouldn’t it be better to be receptive to others’ views before establishing criterion in any issue? At the end, those comforting convictions turn into sticky and uncomfortable aggregates.

 

¿Es necesario que uno siempre insista en imponer sus convicciones para sentirse seguro en un entorno social? ¿No sería mejor ser receptivo ante el punto de vista de los demás, antes de establecer un criterio sobre cualquier asunto? Al final, las convicciones reconfortantes se convierten en apéndices pegajosos incómodos.
