That is an expression we all have probably heard at least once in our life time. I guess there could be a few situations where that statement might have merit; but I bet not as many times as one might think for those who have used it in their defense.
impetuosity, you could overcome fear through confidence and laziness
through discipline, but rigidity of mind allowed for no antidote.
It carried the seeds of its own destruction.”
(Anton Myer: Once an Eagle)
“It’s my way or the highway” may be fitting in a few places, but again not nearly as many as folks want to think. If you choose to live by such a creed, sooner or later you may find yourself all alone on that highway; and possibly after a while there may not even be a highway for you to travel.
Truly inflexibility it can “Carry the seeds of its own destruction.”
