Just a list of thoughts that I try to take inspiration from as guidelines for life...
Question everything, Learn something, Answer nothing¶
This is a quote by Euripides. I do not know what the original context was but this is how I, and many others from what I've read here and there on the internet, interpret it.
Question everything: do not take anything anyone tells you for the absolute truth. Think for yourself and form your own opinion. A good way to do this is to compare the views of different people that you consider to be proficient in whatever you're dealing with. Of course, if you trust someone a lot, give this person's thoughts more credit.
Learn something: have an opinion on everything, and clear reasons to explain your position. Also, get something out of any situation: a life lesson, pure knowledge...
Answer nothing: this is the counterpart of the previous point: be open minded. Having an opinion on a given topic does not mean you should then keep it all your life. If someone or something makes you realize that the reasons you have this opinion might be wrong, you should not ignore it (but do not accept it blindly as a new "truth" either, as the first point of this quote warns!)
A few quotes :)¶
