I am willing to accept thoughts I read when I have had similar ones myself. I am more willing to accept my own thoughts than those I read. Yet, having a new thought is not an action intended in advance; we don't set ourselves to have that specific new thought. If our own thoughts just 'come to us' unbidden, why should we be less receptive to ones that come through reading? Perhaps because we spontaneously have only those thoughts to which we are already receptive. This may lead me to miss out on learning from those who can teach me most, those who think in a way completely different from mine. Unfortunately however, my trust in them cannot grow in the way described, so I continue to read them from an adversary stance.

Robert David Sanders Novak

Robert David Sanders Novak

Robert David Sanders Novak (born February 26, 1931) is a conservative American political commentator and journalist. Over his career, Bob Novak has become well-known as a columnist (writing Inside Report since 1963) and as a television personality (appearing on many shows for CNN, most notably on three former programs, The Capital Gang , Crossfire , and Evans, Novak, Hunt, and Shields). His memoirs entitled Prince of Darkness: Fifty Years Reporting in Washington were published in July 2007 by Crown Forum, a division of Random House. "Prince of Darkness" was a nickname given Novak by his friend, the reporter John Lindsay, because he thought for a young man, [Novak] took a very dim view of the prospects for our civilization."
