Doubt begets understanding, and understanding begets compassion. Verily, it is conviction that kills.R. Scott Bakker, The Thousandfold Thought
When we get too certain of what is right, what we know, and how things should work then we stop asking questions and trying to learn. We need to question ourselves and our situation to grow.
When we try to understand ourselves, others and their situations then we start to empathize and connect.
It’s not about questioning everything, but to keep reflecting. Especially when we feel most certain or when someone says or do something that seems stupid to us. To ask ourselves, why does this make sense to them and not me?
As a side note: I had to check what begets mean before I understood what I read and maybe you do to: begets mean to cause or to produce an effect.
