I also like: "In order to be able to think you have to risk being offensive" by Jordan B. Peterson, because ability to take risk is correlated with curiosity (only curious people are capable of taking risk; people who play it safe have no curiosity).

DisclaimerI am not an idiot or a reckless person. The reason I can allow myself writing what I think, even if that may be critical to a commonly adopted and conventional view, is that my financial situation is sufficient and stable. Of course, I wouldn't mind making more money or be involved in interesting projects (as described in my generic resume). But I do not have to pretend to be someone I'm not to make my living. I am aware of the fact that my chance to find many professionals with similar views is slim. The demand for "professional correctness" is taken to such an extreme that it has become a demand for personal conformity. I also know that the chance that my writing will have a significant effect is negligible. But the butterfly effect exists, so the chance is not exactly zero.
