About this Quote

This quote by Terence speaks to the power of indecision and how it can cause a lack of instructions. When we doubt of what to do, we can be quickly swayed by even the slightest of influences. This can be seen in our every day lives, when we are confronted with a tough decision and are not sure of which course to take. We might be influenced by the viewpoints of others, or swayed by the pledge of a reward. In such cases, our minds can be quickly controlled and our decisions can be made without much idea.

The quote also talks to the value of making choices with a clear and focused mind. When we remain in doubt, it is necessary to take a step back and consider all of our choices prior to deciding. We must make the effort to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each choice and make sure that we are making the best choice for ourselves. By doing this, we can guarantee that our decisions are not being driven by a slight impulse, however rather by a well-thought-out and educated decision.
