I friend of mine, Karen Fries, just told me about a great quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:

A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines."

~~Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), U.S. essayist, poet, philosopher. "Self-Reliance," Essays, First Series (1841, repr. 1847).

Consistency for consistency’s sake drives me silly. Thus … I really like what Emerson had to say…
