“Cogito, ergo sum.” René Descartes.
The saying “I think, therefore I am” is a common one that many know, but to me it is missing the critical first part of what René Descartes said, i.e. “dubito” or I doubt.
“Dubito…cogito, ergo sum.” René Descartes
He said, “I doubt…I think, therefore I am.” Just one word that really changes who I am. I am a doubting, thinking person. I question, I query, I’m dynamic.
What do you feel/think about the revised René Descartes quotation?
“I think, therefore I am”, and so “descend with mind into the heart“.I leave this thought for people to contemplate. I also acknowledge Rene Descartes and St. Theophan the Recluse, whose sayings I have fused to make a phrase pregnant with personal meaning.
