Searching for Truth

From the brilliant mind of Fyodor Dostoyevsky:


You never reach any truth without making fourteen mistakes and very likely a hundred and fourteen.

I’ve finished reading Crime and Punishment weeks ago but this particular quote lingers on my mind for some reason. It’s certainly worth pondering, ain’t it?

Kinda reminds me of one article in The Guardian about a certain Egyptian double agent who told his son, “Everything you want to know in the world is public. You just have to look at it and research it and put the dots together. Anything and eveything you want to know is there for us to see.”

I wish you luck in finding the truth that you need to make sense of this world.

  1. Yes! The problem is not that so much is hidden; rather, it seems to be what one ancient Teacher said (paraphrased): Some have eyes, but do not see; have ears but do not hear. Wonderful thoughts you’ve posted… Exceptional. Thank you!

    P. S. I love Fyodor Dostoyevsky


    1. And there are none so blind as those who will not see. None so deaf as those who do not hear. Although I won’t blame them. Truth can be terrible. It is far easier to swallow the lies than to ruin one’s comfort zone. Thank you, Jonathan. πŸ™‚

      I love him too. ❀

  2. I can’t help myself and think of the TV show X-Files: “The truth is out there.” Going on memory I believe it was Camus who said basically there is no Truth, but rather a collection of smaller truths. Thought provoking post.


    1. Yes, it was Camus. And it is so true. We create our own reality. We create our own truths. It is no surprising that reality is composed of many truths. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. πŸ™‚
