Text Versions
I can’t say with certitude  (Certitude Quotes) Certitude belongs exclusively to those who only look in one encyclopedia  (Certitude Quotes) Work to perfect the mind. There is no certitude but in what the mind conceives  (Certitude Quotes) Certitude is not the test of certainty  (Certitude Quotes) I don’t like quintessential certitude  (Certitude Quotes) Certitude belongs exclusively to those who only own one encyclopedia  (Certitude Quotes) What makes friendship indissolute and what doubles its charms is a feeling we find lacking in love: I mean certitude  (Certitude Quotes) Faith is certitude without proofs... Faith is a sentiment, for it is a hope; it is an instinct, for it precedes all outward instruction  (Certitude Quotes) The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow or love. Chained by his certitude, he is a slave; he has forfeited his freedom. Only the person who risks is truly free  (Certitude Quotes) From men motivated by moral certitude, history teaches, no lasting good ever comes  (Certitude Quotes) ... we have more faith in what we imitate than in what we originate. We cannot derive a sense of absolute certitude from anything which has its roots in us. The most poignant sense of insecurity comes from standing alone and we are not alone when we imitate. It is thus with most of us; we are what other people say we are. We know ourselves chiefly by hearsay  (Certitude Quotes) Let no one hope to find in contemplation an escape from conflict, from anguish or from doubt. On the contrary, the deep inexpressible certitude of the contemplative experience awakens a tragic anguish and opens many questions in the depths of the heart like wounds that cannot stop bleeding  (Certitude Quotes) For every gain in deep certitude there is a corresponding growth of superficial doubt. This doubt is by no means opposed to genuine faith, but it mercilessly examines and questions the spurious faith of everyday life, the human faith which is nothing but the passive acceptance of conventional opinion.  (Certitude Quotes) Certitude is not the test of certainty. We have been cocksure of many things that were not so  (Certitude Quotes) There lay certitude; there, in the daily round. all the rest hung on mere threads and trivial contingencies; you couldn’t waste your time on it. The thing was to do your job as it should be done  (Certitude Quotes) Women will always choose the man over the best friend. This is a sad but true fact of life, and it's only this certitude that makes me unashamed to admit it  (Certitude Quotes) My own opinion is that belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort, or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence  (Certitude Quotes) An unexamined faith is not worth having, for fundamentalism and uncritical certitude entail the rejection of one of the great human gifts: that of free will, of the liberty to make up our own minds based on evidence and tradition and reason  (Certitude Quotes) Since social relationships are always ambiguous, since my thought is only a unit, since my thoughts create rifts as much as they unite, since my words establish contacts by being spoken and create isolation by remaining unspoken, since an immense moat separates the subjective certitude that I have for myself from the objective reality that I represent to others, since I never stop finding myself guilty even though I feel I am innocent  (Certitude Quotes) This I ever held worse that all certitude, to know not what the worst ahead might be  (Certitude Quotes) On the other hand, for the whole human being who wills, feels, and represents, external reality is given simultaneously and with as much certitude as his own self  (Certitude Quotes) Faith comes to intelligence as a light that overflows it with joy and inspires it with a certitude that does away with question  (Certitude Quotes) We now know that human transformation does not happen through didacticism or through excessive certitude, but through the playful entertainment of another scripting of reality that may subvert the old given text and its interpretation and lead to the embrace of an alternative text and its redescription of reality  (Certitude Quotes) Having the certitude of a succession of days... equally free and beautiful, peace descends on me  (Certitude Quotes) One of the most constant characteristics of beliefs is their intolerance. The stronger the belief, the greater its intolerance. Men dominated by a certitude cannot tolerate those who do not accept it  (Certitude Quotes) A desire for truth is by no means a need for certitude and it would be unwise to confuse one with the other  (Certitude Quotes) On a very long and very high wire, I will not hope to not be blown off by high winds. I will have the certitude that such could not happen.  (Certitude Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
