Andrew O'Sullivan Posted about 3 years ago i dont know This statement, for me, is quite profound. It's an honest primal expression of the human condition at it's most basic, stripped bare to a point where it can utter only two truths in all honesty; - I am, and I don't know. These truths take wisdom to realise, courage and humility to admit, but are ultimately healthy and empowering I believe. Lifes adventure, and all that we come to celebrate and value, can be spun out on the conundrums such a revelation poses. Some might say it undermines all that we come to hold precious and true, but I believe to the contrary that it's a life affirming, healthy foundation from which to navigate your way through life. Knowing and admitting how little you do know being the first step in extending your reach.
