ZHUANGZI: The Sage of Uncertainty

Perhaps I am a bit of a philosopher, inasmuch as, in favor of my ills, I have endeavored to always advance to ever higher degrees of insecurity.

Cioran, letter to Fernando Savater

“As for Cioran’s skepticism, it is of such a parti-pris that it is hardly dramatic. What to think of a spirit that says: “Nothing quenches my thirst for doubts: If I had a Moses stick to make them roast from the very rock!” A well-formed mind may have doubts but never aspire to have them, and has at least one certainty, that not everything is uncertain: which is where the act of thinking finds its difficulty, its usefulness, and its greatness.”

Pierre-Henri Simon, “O desespêro como mercadoria” [Despairs as a commodity], Tribuna da Imprensa, Rio de Janeiro, ano IV, no 785, 19-20 de julho 1952.
