Where doubt is, there truth is…

Doubt comes in at the window when inquiry is denied at the door.

Benjamin Jowett (1817 – 1893)

Better to trust the man who is frequently in error than the one who is never in doubt.

Eric Sevareid (1912 – 1992)

Believe those who are seeking the truth. Doubt those who find it.

André Gide (1869 – 1951)

Who never doubted, never half believed. Where doubt is, there truth is – it is her shadow.

Ambrose Bierce (1842 – 1914)

A belief which leaves no place for doubt is not a belief; it is a superstition.

-José Bergamín (1895 – 1983)

It’s the job of intellectuals and writers to cast doubt on perfection.

Antonio Tabucchi (1943 – 2012)

Doubt is part of all religion. All the religious thinkers were doubters.

Isaac Bashevis Singer (1903 – 1991)

I respect faith, but doubt is what gets you an education.

Wilson Mizner (1876 – 1933)

There lives more faith in honest doubt, believe me, than in half the creeds.

Alfred Tennyson (1809 – 1892)

I slept with faith and found a corpse in my arms on awakening; I drank and danced all night with doubt and found her a virgin in the morning.

Aleister Crowley (1875 – 1947)
