Philosophical Quote Of The Day

I think we ought always to entertain our opinions with some measure of doubt. I shouldn't wish people dogmatically to believe any philosophy, not even mine.
-Bertrand Russell
This is a philosophy i live by.  I've done my own real life research and i find that i try to entertain my own opinions with some measure of a doubt as well.  It's very easy to become closed-minded and get caught up in having the answers all the time.  The fact of the matter is, i form opinions very little on a lot of things.  We all live by our own philosophies whether we know it or not.  Some choose to own it or it owns them.  I think that being open-minded is the basis of owning and living you're own philosophy.  It's a beautiful thing accepting that i don't have all the answers, nor do i have to.  I've found some peace in that.
How do you approach your philosophies in life?  I think it's a good question not enough people ask themselves.

  1. I think this is a very wise philosophy to live by. We should always remain skeptical of our own beliefs...this leads us to always be open-minded.
