Good for the soul

If you want, not only to be loved, but to be lovely, entering in to conversation with Russ and his guests is time well-spent. Cultivate the habits of listening, clarifying disagreements as well as enthusing over agreed insights. Humility and conviction grow together, and knowledge won’t necessarily puff up.
