“If we begin with certainties, we shall end in doubts; but if we begin with
doubts, and we are patient in them, we shall end in certainties.”
– Sir Francis Bacon
Webster defines the word doubt as to lack confidence in, distrust, to consider unlikely. Doubt seems to be such a negative thing when looked at it from just a definition standpoint. But is doubt really all that bad. I think doubt has potential to be bad, but it also has the potential to be good.
When entering situations in life it is always to be cautious. To have doubt is not a bad thing, to be doubtful in the other had can be disastrous. I think with doubt comes caution, a smart thing when entering new situations.
The quote posted today talks about the subject in a positive way. Even though it comes at the subject from the confidence side, I think it addresses doubt positively instead of confidence negatively. What do you think? Is doubt a factor in your life?
