Sure - Quotes

John Irving

We philosophers are mistake specialists. (I know, it sounds like a bad joke, but hear me out.) While other disciplines specialize in getting the right answers to their defining questions, we philosophers specialize in all the ways there are of getting things so mixed up, so deeply wrong, that nobody is even sure what the right questions are, let alone the answers. Asking the wrongs questions risks setting any inquiry off on the wrong foot. Whenever that happens, this is a job for philosophers! Philosophy - in every field of inquiry - is what you have to do until you figure out what questions you should have been asking in the first place.

Daniel Dennett

Paulo Coelho

Everybody knows if you are too careful you are so occupied in being careful that you are sure to stumble over something.

Gertrude Stein

All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure.

Mark Twain

When you're dealing with an unknown the only sure commodity is uncertainty.

Clive Cussler

Children are [...] the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.

Peter Ustinov
