CERTAINTY
[ Also see Chance Doubt Facts Uncertainty ]

If we begin with certainties, we shall end in doubts; but if we begin with doubts, and are patient in them, we shall end in certainties.
      - Francis Bacon, De Augmentis (bk. I)

      - Honore de Balzac

What makes friendship indissolute and what doubles its charms is a feeling we find lacking in love: I mean certitude.
      - Honore de Balzac

Certainty is the mother of quiet and repose, and uncertainty the cause of variance and contentions.
      - Lord Edward Coke

The odds are six to five that the light in the end of the tunnel is the headlight of an oncoming train.
      - Paul Dickson

We can be absolutely certain only about things we do not understand.
      - Eric Hoffer

It is not certain that everything is uncertain.
      - Blaise Pascal

We do know of certain knowledge that he [Osama bin Laden] is either in Afghanistan, or in some other country, or dead.
      - Donald Rumsfeld

Do not feel certain of anything.
      - Bertrand Arthur William Russell

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.
      - Bertrand Arthur William Russell

A chuck under the chin is worth two kisses.
      - Jonathan Swift
