People read to get certainty. They want to feel as though the author knows what they are talking about.

You need to use uncertain words only when you actually are uncertain. Othe…
 
“It’s easy to see death as this thing that lies off in the distant future. Even those of us who choose not to live in denial of our mortality can be guilty of this.

“We talked a while back about one of the most inspiring lessons of Seneca’s life—that’s it’s not too late for anyone.
