Scott Peck: truth is more vital to our self-interest than comfort

We must always hold truth, as best we can determine it, to be more important, more vital to our self-interest, than our comfort.  Conversely, we must always consider our personal discomfort relatively unimportant and, indeed, even welcome it in the service of the search for truth.  Mental health is an ongoing process of dedication to reality at all costs.

~ M. Scott Peck, M.D., The Road Less Traveled, p. 50
