On being correct (Saunders)

Every human position has a problem with it.  Believed in too much, it slides into error.  It's not that no position is correct; it's that no position is correct for long.  We're perpetually slipping out of absolute virtue and failing to notice, blinded by our desire to settle in—to finally stop fretting about things and relax forever and just be correct; to find an agenda and stick with it.

George Saunders, A Swim in a Pond in the Rain
