Desire for stagnation means being old too soon

"Those who never retract their opinions love themselves more than they love truth."
- Joseph Joubert

Loving themselves is an interesting variation on having an excess of pride in themselves.

Not changing your opinion means that you are not open to changing circumstances, including uncovering of new knowledge or changing of environmental conditions.

It means "being old" no matter what your age.

Ironically, politicians and the media love to sink their teeth into political leaders or elected representatives who change their positions on issues. They act as if nothing ever should change or that a politician should always make the right choice of position on an issue despite the evidence that might point in a different direction before new facts come to light.

Change is a fact of life. Resisting change is a sign of decay.
