Reading the words
Reading the sense

Following a rule
Being guided by a rule

Believing you know
Knowing you believe

I know I’m a bad tennis player
But I don’t want to be a better player

Doubt is the seed of thought
Certainty never germinates

There’s nothing to apologise for
I won’t apologise
Why should I apologise?
If I apologise….
When I apologise…then
Perhaps I should apologise
I ought to apologise
It is my duty to apologise
I regret it
I am ashamed

(Zettel 2005)
