Erich Fromm


"The quest for certainty blocks the search for meaning.  Uncertainty is the very condition to impel man to unfold his powers."















German Psychologist/Sociologist/Writer


1900 - 1980











Do you see the world as black and white?  Or are you comfortable with large amounts of gray? Is truth eternal and sacred or is it flexible and changing?  I believe artists and writers need to live in the gray areas.  Certainty inhibits creativity.  We must be able to challenge and question everything that others take to be truth.  Certainty limits how we see the world and prevents us from exploring our vision of how the world should be.
