two quotes on constancy

"A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do."
– Emerson, Ralph Waldo (1803 - 1882), US poet and essayist. Essays, 'Self-reliance', 1841

"Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life. The only completely consistent people are the dead."
– Huxley, Aldous (1894 - 1964), British novelist. Do What you Will, 1929

Note to self: Embrace inconsistency.
