Doubt whom you will, but never yourself.

Quotes on: doubt

And make us lose the good we oft might win

Quotes on: doubt

I think we ought always to entertain our opinions with some measure of doubt. I shouldn't wish people dogmatically to believe any philosophy, not even mine.
Bertrand Russell
Quotes on: opinions philosophy doubt

All of us are confused and ambivalent at times. We don't know the answer to a problem or we are faced with conflicting answers. Instead of giving up, instead of drowning in doubt, soul growth requires that we forge ahead, that we continue to ask questions and look for answers -- all the while having faith that everything is unfolding in the right manner.
John Gray Handbook for the Soul
Quotes on: doubt faith action

Faith is something we grow into; doubt is something we grow out of. Gradually. And the movement is not always forward -- out of doubt into faith. It is a line that wavers. As the picture a partially filled cup, we sometimes speculate: is the cup half full, or half empty? If we see faith as the contents of the cup, is it half full of faith, or half full of doubt? And if we look at the cup -- our experience -- and see one-half doubt, is doubt all we see? As God looks at the half-full, half-empty cup, what does He see? The doubt? Or the faith? Or, if faith is nearly a tiny seed -- say, a mustard seed -- can God see it? Is He moved by it? Or is He too busy gazing at the ample doubt that may surround that speck of faith? We know the answer: God sees such faith. And is moved.
James Long "Beyond the shadow of doubt" by James Long, Discipleship Journal, Issue 40.

Doubts and mistrust are the mere panic of timid imagination, which the steadfast heart will conquer, and the large mind transcend.
Helen Keller The Book of Positive Quotations
Quotes on: doubt mistrust imagination risk courage bravery success

Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind. People grow old only by deserting their ideals and outgrowing the consciousness of youth. Years wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul... You are as old as your doubt, your fear, your despair. The way to keep young is to keep your faith young. Keep your self-confidence young. Keep your hope young.
Luella F. Phelan The Forbes Book of Business Quotations: 14,266 Thoughts on the Business of Life
Quotes on: youth attitude ideals enthusiasm doubt fear sadness despair faith hope self-confidence

Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old only by deserting their ideals. Years wrinkle the face, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, doubt, self-interest, fear, despair -- these are the long, long years that bow the head and turn the growing spirit back to dust.
