“I respect faith, but doubt is what gets you an education.” Wilson Mizner
I ran across this quote recently and tucked it away. It reminded me of another that has, apparently with some uncertainty attached, been linked to Albert Einstein:
“It’s not that I’m smart. I am merely inquisitive.”
These quotes both remind me that as frustrating as not knowing is, as challenging as new situations and circumstances may be, as difficult as the waters of new relationships are to successfully navigate, they provide fertile ground from which good things (though maybe not the “good things” I had in mind) may grow. Granted, this requires some effort and/or patience on my part, but it occurs to me that it has, and always will be that way.
