Don’t be Too Sure

 

 

“Men become civilized, not in proportion to their willingness to believe, but in proportion to their readiness to doubt.”  

“The most costly of all follies is to believe passionately in the palpably not true. It is the chief occupation of mankind.”

“Moral certainty is always a sign of cultural inferiority. The more uncivilized the man, the surer he is that he knows precisely what is right and what is wrong…The truly civilized man is always skeptical and tolerant, in this field as in all others. His culture is based on “I am not too sure.” –H.L. Mencken

““The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid ones are full of confidence.”
― Charles Bukowski
