“To believe with certainty we must begin with doubting.” ~Stanislaus I of Poland

Doubtful,Doubting

What is that Stanislaus trying to convey ?

He says… to be certain you have to be doubtful !

First of all if you decided  to believe in something ,why should  you be doubtful or apprehensive ? Are you not sure of yourself ?

Is this a contradictory statement or it is a perfect statement ?

Readers please enlighten me further with your thoughts.

Thank you.   Philosophy through photography

        When you have doubts, you search for an answer …and you keep clarifying till you get a convincing answer….and once you get a convincing answer you automatically believe in it..
        Don’t knw how much you will agree with this ….
