Certainty

Quotes



It is the dull man who is always sure, and the sure man who is always dull
It is not certain that everything is uncertain
Do not feel certain of anything
Certainty? In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes
If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts, but if he will content to begin with doubts, he shall end in certainties
