It is particularly incumbent on those who never change their opinion, to be secure of judging properly at first.

-Jane Austen in Pride and Prejudice

I think “never changing one’s opinion” is a fault that usually avoids the female sex thank goodness. I have never known a woman to be so certain in one judgment that she doesn’t change it 1000 times almost immediately after making it.
