the need for thought

To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the need for thought. – Henri Poincare

What a profound truth. I find that most people are at one end or another, but rarely in a space of thoughtful introspection and observation.

I try at all times to examine all beliefs and possibilities in my power to know or that can be knowable. As the quote expresses, I don’t doubt everything, nor do I believe everything. I attempt to see things as they are.

It is freeing because I no longer am bound to a singular way of seeing the world. I have the freedom to think expansively rather than thinking from inside the box of doubt or belief.
