Three Questions

THREE QUESTIONS EVERY INTELLIGENT PERSON SHOULD  PUT TO HIS OR HER OWN MIND EVERY DAY

Do I want to know the truth about politics, business, science, religion, morals and life; or do I merely want to prove that the notions I already have about these things are correct?

Am I willing to lay aside the convictions of a life-time and all the traditions and beliefs of history and all the customs of my social class when I come into the presence of a new fact long enough to find out whether or not this new fact ought to change my point of view?

Have I ever without mental reservations, prejudice, bias, set notions and dogmas, surrender my mind completely to the examination of the reasons for my most cherished opinions; that is, have I surrendered my mind completely to an acceptance of the truth, whether it leads me to heaven or hell.
