INCREDULITY
[ Also see Unbelief ]

Incredulity is not wisdom, but the worst kind of folly. It is folly, because it causes ignorance and mistake, with all the consequents of these; and it is very bad, as being accompanied with disingenuity, obstinacy, rudeness, uncharitableness, and the like bad dispositions; from which credulity itself, the other extreme sort of folly, is exempt.
      - Isaac Barrow

Of all the signs of a corrupt heart and a feeble head, the tendency of incredulity is the surest. Real philosophy seeks rather to solve than to deny.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Some men will believe nothing but what they can comprehend; and there are but few things that such are able to comprehend.
      - Charles de Marguetel de Saint-Denis de Saint-Evremond

Nothing is so contemptible as that affectation of wisdom, which some display, by universal incredulity.
      - Oliver Goldsmith

Incredulity robs us of many pleasures, and gives us nothing in return.
      - James Russell Lowell

Incredulity is the wisdom of a fool.
      - Henry Wheeler Shaw (used pseudonyms Josh Billings and Uncle Esek)

Incredulity is not wisdom.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

The amplest knowledge has the largest faith. Ignorance is always incredulous. Tell an English cottager that the belfries of Swedish churches are crimson, and his own white steeple furnishes him with a contradiction.
      - Robert Aris Willmott
