Of shoes -- and ships -- and sealing wax --
Of cabbages -- and kings --
And why the sea is boiling hot --
And whether pigs have wings.
I admire your conciseness
My own view on self-doubt and certainty have wavered. Certainty on an issue often seems sort of silly to me.But to be fair, I have the following argument in favour of certainty and lack of self-doubt. Self-doubt and indecision of an individual can cripple the web of decisions in the society. And therefore lack of self-doubt is a virtue. One might ask the purpose of it all, but that is a different question.
It is the lack of self doubt/ questioning that is the root cause of all bigotry...religious bigotry, "honour killing" of daughters and such heinous sins. I agree with falstaff
You must have a depressing life. To not have hope of better things is certainly depressing.
