Famous quotes containing the words functions and/or eliminate:

    Let us stop being afraid. Of our own thoughts, our own minds. Of madness, our own or others’.

Sometimes certainty conquers doubt, but it cannot eliminate doubt. The conquered of today may become the conqueror of tomorrow. Sometimes doubt conquers faith, but it still contains faith. Otherwise it would be indifference.
    Paul Tillich (1886–1965)
