I kept on digging the hole deeper and deeper looking for the treasure chest until I finally lifted my head, looked up and realized that I had dug my own grave.
      - Dominic (Domingo de Guzman)

The doubts of an honest man contain more moral truth than the profession of faith of people under a worldly yoke.
      - Xavier Doudan

Doubt is hell in the human soul.
      - Madame Gasparin

Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.
      - Kahlil Gibran

Human knowledge is the parent of doubt.
      - Sir Fulke Greville, 1st Baron Brooke, Lord Brooke

Many with trust, with doubt few, are undone.
      - Sir Fulke Greville, 1st Baron Brooke, Lord Brooke

Fear not to confront realities. The Saviour lives; and the first joy that you will give to Him is when, leaving off your false excuses, you throw yourself with a full heart and empty hands into His arms of mercy. The Saviour lives; and were you now to die looking for salvation only from that Friend of Sinners, verily this day should you be with Him in a better than Adam's paradise. The Saviour lives; and in full sympathy with that wondrous lover of men's souls, the Holy Spirit is even now ready if besought to begin His sanctifying process in your mind. The Saviour lives; and even now He stretches out toward you an arm which, if you only grasp in thankful love, your faith shall strengthen while you cling, and it will be from no weakness in that arm, if you are not ere long exalted to a point of holy attainment which at this moment you view with despair, and by and by to that region of unveiled realities where you will ask in wonder at yourself, "Wherefore did I doubt?"
      - James Hamilton

To get rid of your doubts, part with your sin. Put away your intemperance, your dishonesty, your unlawful ways of making money, your sensuality, your falsehood, acted or spoken, and see if a holy life be not the best disperser of unwelcome doubts, and new obedience the most certain guide to fresh assurance.
      - James Hamilton

Doubt indulged soon becomes doubt realized.
      - Frances R. Havergal,
        Royal Bounty--The Imagination of the Thoughts of the Heart

Servile doubt argues an impotence of mind, that says we fear because we dare not meet misfortunes.
      - Aaron Hill

The clear, cold question chills to frozen doubt;
  Tired of beliefs, we dread to live without;
    O then, if reason waver at thy side,
      Let humbler Memory be thy gentle guide,
        Go to thy birth-place, and, if faith was there,
          Repeat thy father's creed, thy mother's prayer.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

When in doubt, win the trick.
      - Edmund Hoyle,
        Twenty-four Rules for Learners (rule 12)

Every body drags its shadow, and every mind its doubt.
      - Victor Hugo

Give unqualified assent to no propositions but those the truth of which is so clear and distinct that they cannot be doubted. The enunciation of this first great commandment of science consecrated doubt.
      - Thomas Henry Huxley

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

Doubt yourself and you doubt everything you see. Judge yourself and you see judges everywhere. But if you listen to the sound of your own voice, you can rise above doubt and judgment. And you can see forever.
      - Nancy Kerrigan

Our distrust justifies the deceit of others.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

To doubt is worse than to have lost; and to despair is but to antedate those miseries that must fall on us.
      - Philip Massinger

Known mischiefs have their cure; but doubts have none;
  And better is despair than fruitless hope
    Mix'd with a killing fear.
      - Thomas May

He who dallies is a dastard,
  He who doubts is damned.
      - attributed to George McDuffie,
        during the "Nullification" period

People, when asked if they are Christians, give some of the strangest answers you ever heard. Some will say if you ask them: "Well--well--well, I--I hope I am." Suppose a man should ask me if I am an American. Would I say: "Well, I--well, I hope I am?"
      - Dwight Lyman Moody

But the gods are dead--
  Ay, Zeus is dead, and all the gods but Doubt,
    And doubt is brother devil to Despair!
      - John Boyle O'Reilly, LL.D.,

To doubt is a misfortune, but to seek when in doubt is an indispensable duty. So he who doubts and seeks not is at once unfortunate and unfair.
      - Blaise Pascal

Doubt springs from the mind; faith is the daughter of the soul.
      - Jean-Antoine Petit-Senn

Never do anything, concerning the rectitude of which you have a doubt.
      - Pliny the Younger (Caius Caecilius Secundus)
