Mac Campbell, on being wrong

One of my greatest thrills is to find I've been wrong, so I welcome every chance.

The first prize for a successful attack on my thinking, is making me happy to be wrong; the second prize is to force me think more clearly.

Why I write

'Enough, if something from our hands have power
To live, and act, and serve the future hour'

(William Wordsworth, in a sonnet written to his friend and muse Coleridge, entitled Afterthought, the last in his sonnet series on the River Duddon.)
