Against Certainty

[untitled]

The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

William Butler Yeats
Michael Robartes and the Dancer (1921)

Convictions are more dangerous enemies of truth than lies.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Human, All Too Human (1878)

Illustration by Saul Steinberg (1967)
