    Let us not pretend to doubt in philosophy what we do not doubt in our hearts.

    C.S. Peirce

    Tags: doubt, scepticism wisdom,   

    It is the business of youth to recoil from the counsel of gentleness, of scepticism. Doubt becomes an obstacle, for a youth has need of faith and ideals to give free rein to the impetuosity borne within. And even the most radical, the most absurd illusions, as long as they inflame, would in his eyes have more importance than the most profound wisdom, which saps the strength of his will.

    Stefan Zweig
