Lately, every time I’ve gained some meaningful insight it’s because I’ve developed a more nuanced view on the topic.
Contradictions and distinctions. Exceptions and implications. Nuance. This is what helps us develop true understanding of something.

It’s hard to put into words what I am trying to say because it requires a true mastery of the language but it’s so important to understand.
Insights live at the edge of nuance.
