This is a complicated concept. When one says question everything, it does not mean that we should have doubt; doubting our teachers, our tools, or our own endeavors. However, we should not blindly believe everything. Instead we should evaluate with reason and once we find it to be of worth, we engage in the effort wholeheartedly without any doubt.

My search page this morning had a portrait sketch of James Dean and his quote, “Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today.” Terrific! What a lucid understanding of life. I did not know that James Dean was so wise—on top of being handsome.
