Bundles of Inconsistency

"If a man would register all his opinions upon love, politics, religion, learning, etc., beginning from his youth and so go on to old age, what a bundle of inconsistencies and contradictions would appear at last!"

Jonathan Swift

Very true, but I also think that there is much in a man's inner heart that is unmoved by time and age (probably to his detriment). Perhaps it is the willingness with which we allow ourselves to change, that is constant.
