When I was 5 or 6 yrs old, my grandfather gave me a Barlow Boy Scout knife. He taught me how to use it properly, how to maintain and sharpen it properly and how NOT to use it. After that every time I saw him the knife got inspected. Been 50 years since he handed me that jackknife and I still remember his exact words:

"No good man ever leaves his house without a good pocket knife."
You may know a thing and it is not true. But in understanding that thing there can be ONLY truth. And to understand, you will need contrast. NOT adherence to a single idea. The truth is in the contrast.
