I originally had just the second sentence, but I thought that the "making yourself right" phrase was too ambiguous (it allowed for the interpretation "correcting yourself" as well as "justifying current beliefs despite evidence"). The first sentence provided context, but then excerpting the problematic political view felt too much like editing, especially considering the contentious allegation was already in the URL. My apologies.
Completely different topic, but is there a cheat-sheet for how to format comments for bold and italics? I would have liked to bring the focus (2nd sentence) of my quote to the forefront.
It's a little like wrestling a gorilla. You don't quit when you're tired, you quit when the gorilla is tired.

(Although the reference I found doesn't say which Robert Strauss it was)
I think it goes well with the article Make an Extraordinary Effort.
Thank you for the data and collections of quotes! However, the link to the source code is pointing to the directory where you have the html files for the 2012 and 2009-2012 "Best of" collections, not to any .zip or .gz of the source code itself, and it seems to be pulling up a default page with the unstyled HTML version of the 2012 collection.
