Cool quotes on doubt:

  • The beginning of wisdom is found in doubting; by doubting we come to the question, and by seeking we may come upon the truth. -- Pierre Abelard
  • There are two ways to slide easily through life: to believe everything or to doubt everything; both ways save us from thinking. -- Alfred Korzybski
  • "... both the believer and the unbeliever share, each in his own way, doubt and belief, if they do not hide from themselves and each other the truth of their being. Neither can quite escape either doubt or belief; for one, faith is present against doubt; for the other, through doubt and in the form of doubt." -- Pope Benedict XVI
  • Sometimes doubts can do good in us. It can purify false beliefs that have crept into our faith. It can humble our arrogance. It can give us patience and compassion with other doubters. It can remind us how much truth matters. -- John Ortberg
