“I want to walk a straight and narrow path toward the truth,” said the student. “How do I do it?”
“Walk a crooked and wide path,” replied the traveler.
“That doesn’t make any sense,” responded the student.
“It does once you understand that if you drift in one direction just the width of an eyelash every mile, by the end of your journey you will have only succeeded in walking in a giant circle and you’ll be no closer to the truth you seek.”
