And Ultimate Truth is a Person

“If anyone can refute me—show me I’m making a mistake or looking at things from the wrong perspective—I’ll gladly change. It’s the truth I’m after, and the truth never harmed anyone. What harms us is to persist in self-deceit and ignorance.”

(Marcus Aurelius, The Meditations, p. 74, Gregory Hays, trans.)
