When it comes to knowing what is right, what is best, what is the true nature of things, or having answers to life’s important questions, I feel rather inadequate. While others most assuredly promote their beliefs with black and white certainty, I am silent and see shades of gray. I can’t forget the complexity of the world or the smallness and ignorance of any one person. I’m not sure enough of anything to lay it on everyone else. I trust not in high principles, but in small experiences. (Note: Skeptics have similar doubts, but often lack humility. Indeed, many view “true believers” with hostility, and speak up. These skeptics recognize that doubting leads to questioning, questioning to debate, re-considering, testing, new knowledge, and eventually to the truth.)
