Make up your mind before changing it

art Dan Mcpharlin Making Up A Changing Mind

If you were to need someone for an important task, don’t use a person who needs to have his or her mind changed:—

“I don’t like to change his mind. He might change his mind once too often.”

— Major Adbury, in “The Safecracker” (1958)

Equally, you probably don’t want a person who won’t change his mind. A person who won’t change his mind and won’t change the subject is, by definition, a fanatic.
