Mencken

”Explanations exist; they have existed for all time; there is always a well-known solution to every human problem – neat, plausible and wrong”.

Staying with uncertainty and all the possibility and freedom that comes with it can be so intolerable and anxiety provoking, that we tend to turn away from it and follow predetermined ways, values, assumptions, and like to be told what we should do, rather that carving our own authentic and unique way. But at any moment all prior knowledge, assumptions, values and beliefs regarding self, others and the world may be open to challenge, reconsideration or dissolution, in many ways that might surprise or disturb.

“Uncertainty is a quality to be cherished, therefore – if not for it, who would dare to undertake anything?” (Villiers de L’Isle-Adam).
