Stay away from truth

This post is my shortest blog post ever. For a change I will only post a quote from the philosopher and theologist Adolf Holl. I think this is a very good expression of the meaning of anti-dogmatism :-)
I just read an interview with him in Volzin, where he said:
"If you love truth you should try to stay away from it."

He says that he is a "case of doubt" ("een twijfelgeval" in Dutch) himself, he fundamentally doubts everything, he became a priest but he revolted so much against the church that he was kicked out of it. I like the way he talks about truth, that he says that you offend the truth when you claim too easily to possess it.
