It’s been interesting to see over the past few years how people often splinter into two main groups — those that are “loud & proud” with their beliefs, and those that have logic and reason for theirs. Either can be good, but a combination of the two might be best.
English poet William Shenstone put it this way:
“The zealous display the strength of their belief, while the judicious show the grounds of it.”
If you are super excited about something that you believe in, you’ll have my attention.
If you can then show me the grounds of why you believe it, you’ll keep my attention.
