NELL. Because that’s what an employer is going to have doubts about with a lady as I needn’t tell you, whether she’s got the guts to push through to a closing situation. They think we’re too nice. They think we listen to the buyer’s doubts. They think we consider his needs and his feelings.

I have no doubt that they lived pretty much the same sort of life in the Homeric age, for men have always thought more of eating than of fighting; then, as now, their minds ran chiefly on the “hot bread and sweet cakes;” and the fur and lumber trade is an old story to Asia and Europe.

My rule is when in doubt hire a professional. You could do it just this year and then you have direction to resume doing it yourself after the consultation. What you don’t want is to do it wrong and be hit by a huge tax bill. Remember the old saying, “Don’t be pennywise and pound foolish.”
Michelle Singletary

James K. Polk
Once doubt begins it spreads rapidly.
John Maynard Keynes

When you want to make a beginning of a good deed, first prepare for temptations, which will come to you, and don’t doubt the truth of that which you do for God.
Isaac of Nineveh
I’veВ no doubt that those photographs i took will make people look at everything in a more interesting way – the little tear on oneВ pieceВ of paper, the shadow on another. But good painting has always done that – made you see things. And the most ordinary can be the most extraordinary.
David Hockney
He remembered having said to his uncle (with a solemn dogmatism better befitting a much younger man): “Surely it is possible to love with the head as well as the heart.” Mr. Delagardie had replied, somewhat drily: “No doubt; so long as you do not end by thinking with your entrails instead of your brain.
Dorothy L. Sayers

That is the path beyond thought.
Steven Seagal
When we are succeeding – that is, when we have begun to overcome our self-doubt and self-sabotage, when we are advancing in our craft and evolving to a higher level – that’s when panic strikes.

Edie McClurg
I mean its an obsession, you follow the obsession but at the same time you have so many doubts, you know. Why am I wasting so much money going back to this place, taking more pictures? What’s the point of it? No one cares about it. I think I care about it but maybe I am deceiving myself.
Alex Webb
While forced to dwell apart from thy dear face, Love, robed like sorrow, led me by the hand And taught my doubting heart to understand That which has puzzled all the human race.

Thomas S. Monson

Larry Ellison
I doubt that religion can survive deep understanding. The shallows are its natural habitat. Cranks and fundamentalists are too often victimised as scapegoats for religion in general.

Richard Dawkins
Without a doubt, Dana White is my biggest influence.
Rob Dyrdek
And some cease feeling
Even themselves or for themselves.

Wilfred Owen
I say, choose faith. Choose faith over doubt, choose faith over fear, choose faith over the unknown and the unseen, and choose faith over pessimism.
Dallin H. Oaks
I have self-doubt. I have insecurity. I have fear of failure. I have nights when I show up at the arena and I’m like, ‘My back hurts, my feet hurt, my knees hurt. I don’t have it. I just want to chill.’ We all have self-doubt. You don’t deny it, but you also don’t capitulate to it. You embrace it.
Kobe Bryant
My favorite holiday spot has to be New York, on the St. Lawrence River. Without a doubt that area there is perfect for me. Very, very spacious. It’s nice.
Tom Felton
If I had any doubts at all about the justice of my dislike for Shakespeare, that doubt vanished completely. What a crude, immoral,vulgar, and senseless work Hamlet is. The whole thing is based on pagan vengeance; the only aim is to gather together as many effects as possible; there is no rhyme or reason about it.
Leo Tolstoy
In case of doubt, push on just a little further and then keep on pushing.
George S. Patton
If you don’t have some self doubts and fears when you pursue a dream, then you haven’t dreamed big enough.

Rosemary Clement-Moore
Modern pictures are, no doubt, delightful to look at. At least, some of them are. But they are quite impossible to live with; they are too clever, too assertive, too intellectual. Their meaning is too obvious, and their method too clearly defined. One

James Haskell
Doubters will doubt to the end.

N. T. Wright
Our freedom to doubt was born out of a struggle against authority in the early days of science. It was a very deep and strong struggle: permit us to question – to doubt – to not be sure. I think that it is important that we do not forget this struggle and thus perhaps lose what we have gained.
Richard P. Feynman

Trevor Nunn
Other top-level politicians do not express their global warming doubts because a whip of political correctness strangles their voice.
Vaclav Klaus
In America, conscription is unknown; men are enlisted for payment. Compulsory recruitment is so alien to the ideas and so foreign to the customs of the people of the United States that I doubt whether they would ever dare to introduce it into their law.
Alexis de Tocqueville
So long his name and face are lost in memory-s afterglow; Nor do I recollect of pride or joy or doubt or fright Or other circumstance which marked that time for solo flight The cryptic words alone endure : he said -you’re on your own- And down through time I’ve found it so – the test-s to walk alone
Gill Robb Wilson
All the strength and force of man comes from his faith in things unseen. He who believes is strong; he who doubts is weak. Strong convictions precede great actions. The man strongly possessed of an idea is the master of all who are uncertain or wavering. Clear, deep, living convictions rule the world.
James Freeman Clarke

Frances Hardinge
I have little doubt that when St. George had killed the dragon he was heartily afraid of the princess.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Nothing is more futile than theorizing about music. No doubt there are laws, mathematically strict laws, but these laws are not music; they are only its conditions? The essence of music is revelation.
Heinrich Heine
A proof tells us where to concentrate our doubts.
Morris Kline
I have, I believe, the courage to doubt everything; I have, I believe, the courage to fight against everything; but I do not have the courage to acknowledge anything, the courage to possess, to own anything.
Soren Kierkegaard
But beef is rare within these oxless isles; Goat’s flesh there is, no doubt, and kid, and mutton; And, when a holiday upon them smiles, A joint upon their barbarous spits they put on.

Walter M. Miller, Jr.
The mathematician knows some things, no doubt, but not those things one usually wants to get from him.
Albert Einstein
The world is always ending for someone. It’s a good line. I give it to the father of the child. He says it to his wife. ‘The world is always ending for someone,’ he says. She is trying to quieten the baby, and does not hear him. I doubt that it would matter if she did.
Neil Gaiman
If you expect the best, you will be the best. Learn to use one of the most powerful laws in this world; change your mental habits to belief instead of disbelief. Learn to expect, not to doubt. In so doing, you bring everything into the realm of possibility.
Norman Vincent Peale
We all live in a free Poland, and there would be no free Poland without you, Twenty-five years ago, I did not stand on the same side together with you, but today I have no doubts that it was your vision of Poland which led us in the right direction.
Aleksander Kwasniewski
I want people to like me and, if there’s any doubt, I sort of worry.
Tessa Virtue
When in doubt, make funny faces.
Amy Poehler
And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in showing that religion and Government will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.
James Madison
Sometimes people say yo do you think rap changed you. No doubt it changed me. If I wasn’t making records I’d still be hanging every night.
If a spiritual being is naive to the lower aspects of the world, they usually are killed or die young. Did Jesus really know which of the twelve would betray him? I doubt it.
Frederick Lenz
I doubt we will ever be forgiven. All I hope is – they’ll remember we were human beings
Timothy Findley
Never believe what you cannot doubt.
Robin Skelton
May we attribute to the color of the herbage and plants, which no doubt clothe the plains of Mars, the characteristic hue of that planet, which is noticeable by the naked eye, and which led the ancients to personify it as a warrior?
Camille Flammarion
Every increase in your knowledge is a simultaneous decrease. You learn and you unlearn at the same time. A new certainty is a new doubt as well.
Brian Eno
Those officers and men who were immediately under my observation, evinced the greatest gallantry, and I have no doubt that all others conducted themselves as became American officers and seamen.
Oliver Hazard Perry
What’s interesting about science is that we’re constantly discovering new things about the universe, about ourselves, about our bodies, about diseases, about the possibilities of the future. It’s amazing. Science is one of the coolest things about being a human being – without a doubt.
Joe Rogan
Doubts in your mind are a much greater roadblock to success than obstacles on the journey.
Orrin Woodward
Doubt is the tax man pays for the luxury of useless knowledge.
Ivan Panin
Anger is an affected madness, compounded of pride and folly, and an intention to do commonly more mischief than it can bring to pass; and, without doubt, of all passions which actually disturb the mind of man, it is most in our power to extinguish, at least, to suppress and correct, our anger.
Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon
Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.
BrenГ© Brown
Realisation is our nature. It is nothing new to be gained. What is new cannot be eternal. Therefore there is no need for doubting if one would lose or gain the Self.
Ramana Maharshi
There are no doubts that, the situation in the country today, indicates that there is much more work to do in the process of reforming the political economy and improving the quality of life of our people and communities.
Ibrahim Babangida
Fame is hollow. It amplifies what is there. If there is any self-doubt, or hatred, or lack of ability to connect with people, fame will magnify it.
Alanis Morissette
I doubt most people could survive being defined by the least advisable sexual encounter they’ve engaged in.
Amanda Marcotte
A jealous husband doesnt doubt his wife, but himself.
Honore de Balzac
No matter what – rehearsed, under-rehearsed, over-rehearsed, doubts about rehearsing – the first gig is always the first gig, and you put on your little praying hat, batten down the hatch, and do what you do.
Mick Fleetwood
The Bf 109 is, without doubt, the most satisfying and challenging aircraft that I have ever flown.
Mark Ashley Hanna
both doubt and certainty are as contagious as the common cold
Kathryn Schulz
Man may doubt here and there, but mankind does not doubt.
Hugh Reginald Haweis
There are tons of different reasons why you do TV series and why you don’t, and how it’ll affect your career, and all that. Without a doubt, it has always come down to the script for me. I’m an actor who wants to do great parts, and I’ve been very fortunate, for a long time, to get meaty roles.
Patrick Wilson
Your doubts are not the product of accurate thinking, but habitual thinking. Years ago you excepted flawed conclusions as correct, begin to live your life as if those warped ideas about your potential were true, and ceased the bold experiment in living that brought you many breakthrough behaviors as a child.
Price Pritchett
If we are ever in doubt about what to do, it is a good rule to ask ourselves what we shall wish on the morrow that we had done.
John Lubbock
If you don’t know what to do with many of the papers piled on your desk, stick a dozen colleagues initials on them and pass them along. When in doubt, route.
Malcolm Forbes
Promised Lands was a better book in my opinion, and it’s still my mother’s favorite of the three I’ve done, but I doubt anyone who isn’t a blood relative has ever heard of it. Which is to say expectations aren’t worth much in the book world.
Elizabeth Crook
I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow. When there’s that moment of ‘Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this,’ and you push through those moments, that’s when you have a breakthrough.
Marissa Mayer
I kind of muddled through ‘Pride & Prejudice,’ but with ‘Atonement,’ I knew what I was doing. That makes it sound like I had no doubt. I had doubts – I didn’t know whether it would work. But I knew exactly what I wanted to try to do.
Joe Wright
Courage means going forward without doubt. If you believe you have courage, you have courage.
Martin Nowak
-I am not sure whether he’s sane. -If there’s any doubt about the matter, he is.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Everything is false, everything is possible, everything is doubtful.
Guy de Maupassant
What decides the purpose of life is simply the programme of the pleasure principle. This principle dominates the operation of the mental apparatus from the start. There can be no doubt about its efficacy, and yet its programme is at loggerheads with the whole world, with the macrocosm as much as with the microcosm.
Sigmund Freud
It’s great fun if you get a good piece of writing and you can pretend to be someone else, tell a story that needs to be told, make some kind of connection. I’ve always fancied myself as a leading man, but I really doubt whether anyone else sees me that way.
Colin Hay
But not to perish from internal distress and doubt when one inflicts great suffering and hears the cry of suffering : that is great, that belongs to greatness.
Friedrich Nietzsche
If there are Muslims who believe that they’ve got to kill Christians to make a way for the Islamic faith in the West, not only would they be disappointed, but it will lead to conflict, there’s no doubt about that.
George Carey
…part of the mind’s job was to cast doubt on what the heart knew to be true, and the heart, because it had no words, often lost the argument
Julius Lester
There can be no doubt that a society rooted in the soil is more stable than
one rooted in pavements.
Aldo Leopold
There was a castle called Doubting Castle, the owner whereof was Giant Despair.
John Bunyan
Faith means belief in something concerning which doubt is still theoretically possible … faith is the readiness to act in a cause the prosperous issue of which is not certified to us in advance.
William James
Society? Can we trust us? Doubt it. We’re probably not even real, as was revealed in the popular documentary The Matrix. That bloke next door? Made of pixels. Your co-workers? Pixels. You? One pixel. One measly pixel. You haven’t even got shoes, for Christ’s sake.
Charlie Brooker
Every great thing starts with an idea, followed by a doubt and finally a resolve to abandon or pursue. Victory is a treacherous journey.
Dane Cook
Christians can have doubts and they can have questions and the unhealthy way to deal with that is to keep them inside where they fester and grow and can undermine our faith. The healthy way to deal with it is to talk about it and be honest about it.
Lee Strobel
When in doubt, always opt for going naturel rather than hiding your skin under foundation and such. Line your eyes with kohl and mascara, put on some bright lip gloss and pinch your cheeks a little bit to get them all flushed and bright!
Genelia D’Souza
Regime is made up of people, so I do put faces to regimes and governments, so I feel that all human beings have the right to be given the benefit of the doubt, and they also have to be given the right to try to redeem themselves if they so wish.
Aung San Suu Kyi
Right after the Civil War there was considerable talk about reviving Lincoln’s brief experiment with the Constitutional monetary system. Had not the European money-trust intervened, it would have no doubt become an established institution.
W. Cleon Skousen
Without a doubt in my mind, I believe that vaccinations triggered Evan’s autism.
Jenny McCarthy
To have doubted one’s own first principles is the mark of a civilized man.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
However, I don’t doubt that a wave of immigration will come to Poland.
Aleksander Kwasniewski
Believe with all your heart that you will do what you were made to do. Never for an instant harbor a doubt of it.
Orison Swett Marden
If you have no doubt in what you are about to do, you are not pushing yourself hard enough.
Silvio Micali
Without doubt cats are intellectuals who have been, by some mysterious decree of Providence, deprived of the comfort of the word.
Rebecca West
Maybe. Although I doubt most Shadowhunters get a tattoo of Donatello from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on their left shoulder.
Cassandra Clare
There’s no doubt that in the last two to three decades, American democracy has been hacked. It was based on the regular harvesting of the wisdom of crowds, but now big sources of special interest money are able to prevent the passage of almost any meaningful reform that’s aimed at the public interest.
Al Gore
We are all capable of greatness when we know without any doubt that we are directly connected to a higher purpose.
Andrew Cohen
It is true that men themselves made this world of nations… but this world without doubt has issued from a mind often diverse, at times quite contrary, and always superior to the particular ends that men had proposed to themselves.
Giambattista Vico
I think it’s very hard for coaches to work with me. They’ll no doubt have a good CV afterwards, but at the same time they’re under a lot of pressure.
Roger Federer
When you cast doubt on some bodily function- you don’t know how sensitive the body is to that kind of idea.
Ina May Gaskin
The fearful unbelief is unbelief in yourself.
Thomas Carlyle
All too often we’re filled with negative and limiting beliefs. We’re filled with doubt. We’re filled with guilt or with a sense of unworthiness. We have a lot of assumptions about the way the world is that are actually wrong.
Jack Canfield
No doubt, the White House thinks the American people know Obama’s story. But since the Inauguration, we’ve seen only the president’s present: his perfect family, his Ivy League elegance, his effortless mastery of complex issues. We never see him sweat. And we forget that he ever had to struggle.
Dee Dee Myers
I liked the thought of being a country clergyman. Accordingly I read with care Pearson on the Creed and a few other books on divinity; and as I did not then in the least doubt the strict and literal truth of every word in the Bible, I soon persuaded myself that our Creed must be fully accepted.
Charles Darwin
When in doubt, initiate. Say yes—to love, to life, to joining in with others. That is how we stay on the right path and, at the same time, elevate humanity.
Philip Toshio Sudo
The origin of thinking is some perplexity, confusion or doubt.
John Dewey
I shall return, doubt it not. Such love as ours was not created to remain unfulfilled. Whatever may happen, believe and trust in me, as I shall in you, and keep the remembrance of me in your heart without sadness and without regret.
Baroness Orczy
In doubt, fear is the worst of prophets.
Doubt is the father of invention.
Ambrose Bierce
Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.
Khalil Gibran
Nobody doubts the importance of conscious experience; why then should we doubt the significance of unconscious happenings? They also are part of our life, and sometimes more truly a part of it for weal or woe than any happenings of the day.
Carl Jung
Never doubt my weaseling abilities, Shadowhunter, for they are epic and memorable in their scope.
Cassandra Clare
I doubt whether there is any subject in the world of equal importance that has received so little serious and articulate consideration as the economic status of the family – of its members in relation to each other and of the whole unit in relation to the other units of which the community is made up.
Eleanor Rathbone
Doubt is a very important trait. Out of doubt comes thinking, decisions, choices. We learn stuff. We learn to make mistakes. Or not to.
Martin Landau
Sometimes you’re not sure about a player. Sometimes you doubt. Sometimes you have to guess. Sometimes… you just know.
Alex Ferguson
To leap across an abyss, one is better served by faith than doubt.
William James
The art of giving orders is not to try to rectify the minor blunders and not be swayed by petty doubts.
Sun Tzu
Faith and doubt cannot exist in the same mind at the same time, for one will dispel the other.
Thomas S. Monson
Doubt is the beginning, not the end, of wisdom.
George Iles
To be loved because of one’s merit, because one deserves it, always leaves doubt; maybe I did not please the person whom I want to love me, maybe this, or that – there is always a fear that love could disappear.
Erich Fromm
I don’t think I’m ever afraid, but I doubt myself often. Because of that doubt, I constantly strive to make myself better.
Alrick Brown
Does not a man physically tremble under the mere look of a wild beast or fellow-man that is stronger than himself? Does not a woman redden all over when she feels her lover’s eyes on her? How then should one doubt the mysterious power of one individual over another?
Jane Welsh Carlyle
There can be no doubt that our Nation has had a long and unfortunate history of sex discrimination. Traditionally, such discrimination was rationalized by an attitude of “romantic paternalism” which, in practical effect, put women, not on a pedestal, but in a cage.
William J. Brennan
There is no doubt but men of genius and leisure may carry our method to greater perfection, but, having had long experience, we have found none equal to it for the commodiousness it affords in working with the Understanding.
Francis Bacon
It’s just so fragile. The growing sense of ‘Oh, God, what am I doing Am I any good Will I ever work again’ All those questions of self doubt, they do creep in.
Jacqueline McKenzie
Test yourself on mankind. It is something that makes the doubter doubt, the believer believe.
Franz Kafka
Take everything you like seriously, except yourselves.
Rudyard Kipling
The camel carries on his dreary circular task with his usual slow and pompous step and head poised superciliously, as if it were a ritual affair above the comprehension of the vulgar; and no doubt he comforts himself for the dullness of life by a sense of virtue, like many other formalists beside him.
Freya Stark
Only trust in God can transform doubts into certainty, evil into good, night into radiant dawn.
Pope Francis
No doubt, God alone has become all these objects, animate and inanimate, but in the relative world all beings act and suffer according to their past Karma and innate tendencies.
Sarada Devi
It was essential that I never show doubt about what I was doing.
Steve Martin
If we had the courage to confront the doubts we timidly conceive about ourselves, none of us would utter an ‘I’ without shame.
Emile M. Cioran
If any doubt has arisen as to me, my country [Virginia] will have my political creed in the form of a “Declaration &c.” which I was lately directed to draw. This will give decisive proof that my own sentiment concurred with the vote they instructed us to give.
Thomas Jefferson
When doubt is banished, #‎ abundance flourishes and anything is possible.
Wayne Dyer
In love you don’t doubt, no question. Only when you think you doubt, but when you love you don’t doubt, you just love because you enjoy love. And that’s why love is joy and joy is love.
Nirmala Srivastava
I doubt anything will really come of this lawsuit. First of all, it’s a lawsuit. It involves a subpoena. And try to find a Republican who will be willing to be seen serving a black man.
Bill Maher
Surprise your doubts with action.
Danielle LaPorte
I’m a big believer in tolerance. I think that religion at it’s best comes with a big dose of doubt.
Barack Obama
Elvis was the king. No doubt about it. People like myself, Mick Jagger and all the others only followed in his footsteps.
Rod Stewart
I mean, if I believed, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that a truck was coming at you, and you didn’t believe that truck was bearing down on you, there is a certain point where I tackle you. And this is more important than that.
Penn Jillette
Or. I hate that word. It’s two letters long and stuffed to the gills with reasonable doubt.
Jodi Picoult
The greater part of the people we assign to educate our sons we know for certain are not educated. Yet we do not doubt that they can give what they have not received, a thing which cannot be otherwise acquired.
Giacomo Leopardi
When in doubt, use brute force.
Ken Thompson
A little doubt is better than total credulity.
If you must doubt something, doubt your limits.
Price Pritchett
Doubt is the thing that’ll kill you, the only thing, and it’ll kill your friends, too.
Ron Leshem
As far as I can tell, most actors’ main motivation is self-doubt and neuroses.
Daniel Radcliffe
Doubt, not self-reflection, comes from a destructive energy, and when it rears its head, I talk to it like a lunatic.
Gwyneth Paltrow
When you constantly hear people talking about going the distance, going the distance, you can’t help but wonder about it. I learned a lesson: next time I will fight my fight without that doubt.
Larry Holmes
Doubts about the fundamentals of the gospel exist in certain churches, I am told, to a large extent. My dear friends, where there is a warm-hearted church, you do not hear of them. I never saw a fly light on a red-hot plate.
Charles Spurgeon
There’s no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t be in the position that I am if I didn’t have my ‘One Tree Hill’ fans. They’re the most dedicated, devoted fans. They’re behind you no matter what. If one person says one bad thing about me on Twitter, they’re fighting back!
Jana Kramer
“We’ll never survive!” “Nonsense. You’re only saying that because no one ever has.”
William Goldman
I have found, without a doubt, that when I manage to get outside myself and not make myself the center, I’m always taken care of in whatever situation I’m in, even if I’m slow to recognize it. It’s counterintuitive thinking on some level and not consistently easy to do.
Patrick Fabian
Love is,
without a doubt,
the basis of everything.
Eben Alexander
It is a human inclination to hope things will work out, despite evidence or doubt to the contrary. A successful manager must resist this temptation.
Hyman Rickover
No one doubts that poison gas was used in Syria. But there is every reason to believe it was used, not by the Syrian Army, but by opposition forces to provoke intervention by their powerful foreign patrons, who would be siding with the fundamentalists.
Vladimir Putin
I doubt if one ever accepts a belief until one urgently needs it.
Christopher Isherwood
I was always rather outspoken. I worried about what people thought of me but there really wasn’t room for a lot of self-doubt.
Joe Mantello
I must show no fear, no weakness, no doubt.
George R. R. Martin
John Paul II, above all, managed to contain the huge mass of frustration, of hate that had accumulated in that region, in favour of a peaceful transition. This was, without doubt, something that changed European history.
Rocco Buttiglione
I find writing extremely difficult. I usually have to drag myself to my desk, mainly because I doubt myself. And it’s getting harder because I want to improve with every book.
Markus Zusak
Women are quite able to make friends with a man; but to preserve such a friendship – that no doubt requires the assistance of a slight physical antipathy
Friedrich Nietzsche
Sachin Tendulkar is, in my time, the best player without doubt
Brian Lara
On the sixth day, God created the artist, realizing no doubt that He had far from exhausted the uses of color.
Robert Breault
It’s okay to doubt. It’s important to test. The way to discover secrets is to be a student of your own efforts.
Robert Genn
I seriously doubt I would ever have written the first story had I not been a lawyer. I never dreamed of being a writer. I wrote only after witnessing a trial.
John Grisham
There is no doubt that many things in life come to us…at backrounds so to speak. Happiness is one of them.
Stephen Leacock
Magic exists. Who can doubt it, when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.
Nora Roberts
Carlos Ruiz hascaught me a lot of bullpens, and he’s really worked since he got here to try to learn the pitchers. You know, he’s a true – he’s a guy you want on your team, no doubt. He works tirelessly at what he can, and you know, got the huge hit for us today.
Clayton Kershaw
There Lives More Faith in Honest Doubt, Believe Me, Than Half the Creeds. – Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Fannie Flagg
I think for every artist it’s important to always keep this amount of doubt until the very last day of shooting.
Gaspard Ulliel
They who have conquered doubt and fear have conquered failure.
James Allen
Science moves, but slowly, slowly, creeping on from point to point. …
Yet I doubt not through the ages one increasing purpose runs,
And the thoughts of men are widened with the process of the suns. …
Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
No doubt it is true that there is more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner repented than over all the saints who consistently remain holy, and the rare, sudden gentlenesses of arrogant people have infinitely more effect than the continual gentleness of gentle people. Arrogance turned gentle melts the heart.
Booth Tarkington
What of the Exodus? That too, is a wonderful story, but from the viewpoint of an historian, it is – to use a word scholars love – problematic. Let’s say there are doubts, to say the least, among many scholars, as to whether the Exodus actually occurred. That’s a historical issue.
Elie Wiesel
The only people who have doubts about the sincerity of my music are people who come to it relatively late, off the back of having seen me in a film. Acting is about being other people, and music is about being myself.
Riz Ahmed
I often use music as a handle for very emotionally explosive substances: love, sex, God, fear, doubt, politics, the economics of the soul – these are daunting thoughts in the back of my mind that I rarely visit without the safety gloves of song.
Jon Foreman
The road to perseverance lies by doubt.
Francis Quarles
There is no doubt that the foundation of being a great yoga teacher is being a great yoga student.
Rod Stryker
People who’re nuts never doubt their own sanity. (The Killer’s Cousin)
Nancy Werlin
I don’t know whether schooling would have helped me get farther along in music at this time. I doubt it would have.
Randy Travis
They say that the eyes of some paintings can follow you around the room, a fact that I doubt, but I am wondering whether some music can follow you for ever.
Terry Pratchett
I doubt if there is a single field of study so theoretical, so remote from what is laughingly called everyday life, that it may not one day produce something that will shake the world.
Arthur C. Clarke
Negative minds full of fear and doubt produce negative lives, which can ultimately destroy your life.
Joyce Meyer
No doubt, intuitions deserve respect. …[but] I think that it is always up for grabs what an intuition is an intuition of. At a minimum, it is surely sometimes up for grabs.
Jerry Fodor
A raised eyebrow, an inflection of the voice, a caustic remark dropped in the middle of a broadcast can raise doubts in a million minds about the veracity of a public official or the wisdom of a governmental policy.
Spiro T. Agnew
Well, there’s no doubt about the fact that, that higher energy prices lead to greater conservation, greater energy efficiency, and they also, of course, play a useful role on the supply side.
John W. Snow
Believe me, lady, my strength is the one thing I never doubt. (Vane) It’s amazing the lies we tell other people, isn’t it? (Sunshine’s grandmother)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
There is no doubt in my mind who is number one – I have always been number one.
George Thorogood
I would say that our patients never really despair because of any suffering in itself! Instead, their despair stems in each instance from a doubt as to whether suffering is meaningful. Man is ready and willing to shoulder any suffering as soon and as long as he can see a meaning in it.
Viktor E. Frankl
Always remember your kid’s name. Always remember where you put your kid. Don’t let your kid drive until their feet can reach the pedals. Use the right size diapers…for yourself. And, when in doubt, make funny faces.
Amy Poehler
Be isolated, be ignored, be attacked, be in doubt, be frightened, but do not be silenced.
Bertrand Russell
After having dispatched a meal, I went ashore, and found no habitation save a single house, and that without an occupant; we had no doubt that the people had fled in terror at our approach, as the house was completely furnished.
Christopher Columbus
There is no doubt that I have lots of words inside me; but at moments, like rush-hour traffic at the mouth of a tunnel, they jam.
John Updike
The sport has definitely moved beyond that founding idea of MMA, but without a doubt we wouldn’t be sitting here right now if the Gracies didn’t come here and teach their style and create the UFC.
B. J. Penn
If you come to doubt, I’ll give you every reason to doubt. If you come suspicious, I’ll give you every reason to be suspicious. But if you come seeking Love, I’ll show you more love than you’ve ever known
Mahavatar Babaji
By recognizing a favorable opinion of yourself, and taking pleasure in it, you in a measure give yourself and your peace of mind into the keeping of another, of whose attitude you can never be certain. You have a new source of doubt and apprehension.
Charles Horton Cooley
How could an argument soothe or settle a controversy when every word is a nest for a bird of doubt? (meaning of words as inferences)
Edmond Jabes
I am a real Christian, that is to say, a cisciple of the doctrines of Jesus. I have little doubt that our whole country will soon be rallied to the unity of our Creator.
Thomas Jefferson
A bending staff I would not break,
A feeble faith I would not shake,
Nor even rashly pluck away
The error which some truth may stay,
Whose loss might leave the soul without
A shield against the shafts of doubt.
John Greenleaf Whittier
When in doubt, one can rarely go wrong by going public.
James E. Rogers
Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
Dale Carnegie
Never doubt that you can change history. You already have.
Marge Piercy
I have no doubt that what we started has become a plague. Because – and that’s a million years ago but we got caught up in the drama more than we caught up in going after the facts.
Mike Wallace
There’s a Bible on that shelf there. But I keep it next to Voltaire – poison and antidote.
Bertrand Russell
Even if you aren’t in doubt, consider the mental welfare of the person who has to maintain the code after you, and who will probably put parens in the wrong place.
Larry Wall
Man is the only animal that contemplates death, and also the only animal that shows any sign of doubt of its finality.
William Ernest Hocking
There is, indeed a more mitigated scepticism or academical philosophy, which may be both durable and useful, and which may, in part, be the result of this Pyrrhonism, or excessive scepticism, when its undistinguished doubts are corrected by common sense and reflection.
David Hume
Without a doubt. I believe in fate the same way others believe in God. I do believe in fate.
Angeles Mastretta
Homo sapiens, the only creature endowed with reason, is also the only creature to pin its existence on things unreasonable.
Henri Bergson
Thus, when the lamp that lighted The traveller at first goes out, He feels awhile benighted, And looks around in fear and doubt. But soon, the prospect clearing, By cloudless starlight on he treads, And thinks no lamp so cheering As that light which Heaven sheds.
Charles Lamb
I saw my Lord with the Eye of my heart, and I said: “Who are you?” He answered: “You!”
Mansur Al-Hallaj
Satan will battle you with doubt and unbelief, but God has victory waiting for you if you’ll keep trusting and believing Him.
Joyce Meyer
When you start to doubt yourself the real world will eat you alive.
Henry Rollins
In my view, the future of politics is, without a doubt, social liberalism married to economic conservatism. Which means we have to make an economic argument to social liberals, that it’s OK to vote for us. But we won’t run the economy into the ground at the same time.
Louise Mensch
The lens of fear magnifies the size of uncertainty.
Charles R. Swindoll
I hope I would not be so arrogant as to doubt anyone’s religion or belief.
Anthony Hopkins
Your goals, minus your doubts, equal your reality.
Ralph Marston
To be honest, I didn’t want to believe that Christianity could radically transform someone’s character and values. It was much easier to raise doubts and manufacture outrageous objections that to consider the possibility that God actually could trigger a revolutionary turn-around in such a depraved and degenerate life.
Lee Strobel
It is certainly possible that someone who has had contact with this patient could develop Ebola, but there is no doubt in my mind that we will stop it here.
Tom Frieden
I had been brought up in a church which decides everything and permits no doubts, so that having rejected one article of faith I was forced to reject the rest.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau
We lisp in numbers, in the U.S. We are deluged by ample, often mysterious statistics. … Like many in this country, I have come to regard statistics with doubt and merely as a hint of the probable shape of fact.
Martha Gellhorn
No doubt I enjoy being close to people in the way I dress, the way I speak, and the way I communicate with people.
Vicente Fox
If love and ambition should be in equal balance, and come to jostle with equal force, I make no doubt but that the last would win the prize.
Michel de Montaigne
We corrupt the Word of God most dangerously, when we throw any doubt on the plenary inspiration of any part of Holy Scripture.
J. C. Ryle
I follow my law and fulfil it all duly and look! when your doubt runneth high North points to the needle!
Edith M. Thomas
Our policy is, when in doubt, do the right thing.
Roy Ash
Hope requires a very careful symbolization. It must not be expressed too fully in the present tense because hope one can touch and handle is not likely to retain its promissory call to a new future. Hope expressed only in the present tense will no doubt be coopted by the managers of this age
Walter Brueggemann
Doubts arise because of an absence of surrender.
Ramana Maharshi
I doubt evolution is real.
Ronald Reagan
I get asked all the time if I want to do more dramatic acting, and I really doubt that dramatic actors get asked if they want to do more comedies. I don’t really know why that is.
Chris O’Dowd
Who was born first, you or the world? As long as you give first place to the world, you are bound by it; once you realize, beyond all trace of doubt, that the world is in you and not you in the world, you are out of it. Of course your body remains in the world and of the world, but you are not deluded by it.
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Without a doubt there are women who would vote intelligently. There are also men who knit socks beautifully.
H. L. Mencken
Should poor souls fear a shade or night,
Who came sure from a sea of light?
Or since those drops are all sent back
So sure to thee, that none doth lack,
Why should frail flesh doubt any more
That what God takes, He’ll not restore?
Henry Vaughan
When you win the toss – bat. If you are in doubt, think about it, then bat. If you have very big doubts, consult a colleague then bat.
W. G. Grace
The mind God is looking for in man is a doubting, questioning mind, not a dogmatic mind; dogmatic reasoning is wrong reasoning. Dogmatic reason ties a huge rock to a man’s foot and stops him forever from advancing.
Mehmet Murat Ildan
I doubt that the phenomenon was any terrestrial reflection, because… nothing of the kind has ever appeared before or since… I was so unprepared for such a strange sight that I was really petrified with astonishment.
Clyde Tombaugh
Supreme Court nominees should know without any doubt that their job is not to impose their own personal opinions of what is right and wrong, but to say what the law is, rather than what they personally think the law ought to be.
Chuck Grassley
There can be no doubt that this possessive clinging to things is one of the most harmful habits in the [christian] life. Because it is so natural, it is rarely recognized for the evil that it is. But its outworkings are tragic.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
And for mathematical science, he that doubts their certainty hath need of a dose of hellebore.
Joseph Glanvill
Without a doubt, there’s huge satisfaction when a relatively smaller nation can take on a bigger nation and defeat them. There’s a lot of pride in that.
Jim Courier
I always knew I was going to make it, without doubt.
Chazz Palminteri
Everyone doubts themselves. It’s just a matter of admitting it or not.
Henry Cavill
No doubt there is a Scandinavian wave. I guess everybody is just surfing their wave until it breaks and hoping it won’t be too soon.
Tobias Lindholm
And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.
Sylvia Plath
There is no doubt that religious fanatics have done more to prejudice the cause they affect to advocate than have its opponents.
Hosea Ballou
Frantic orthodoxy is never rooted in faith but in doubt. It is when we are unsure that we are doubly sure.
Reinhold Niebuhr
I sat with my two best friends, knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that only two of us would make it out of there alive. Though I did tend to exaggerate.
Darynda Jones
It would no doubt be very sentimental to argue – but I would argue it nevertheless – that the peculiar combination of joy and sadness in bell music – both of clock chimes, and of change-ringing – is very typical of England. It is of a piece with the irony in which English people habitually address one another.
A. N. Wilson
I believe in term limits for presidents because I think that there is no doubt I’m a better president now than I was when I start.
Barack Obama
I personally have no doubt that the Exodus occurred. How it occurred, I don’t know.
Elie Wiesel
There’s naught, no doubt, so much the spirit calms as rum and true religion.
Lord Byron
Vancouver’s a very child friendly city, there’s… no doubt about that.
Robert Carlyle
Kim Jong-Un is a dangerous leader, without a doubt. And both Republican and Democrat administrations have been completely ineffective in dealing with him. So we must continue to isolate him. We will need China as part of that strategy.
Carly Fiorina
how should tasting touching hearing seeing breathing any lifted from the no of all nothing human merely being doubt unimaginable You?
e. e. cummings
If you are doing what you love then you’re doing what is right. Desire and passion resonate with your body, mind and soul. When you’re passionate you don’t question, judge, criticize, second-guess, or doubt. It’s that passion that will fuel the fire to overcome challenges.
Layne Beachley
Doubts are like stains on a shirt. I like shirts with stains, because when I’m given a shirt that’s too clean, one that’s completely white, I immediately start having doubts.
Antonio Tabucchi
O, what damned minutes tells he o’er
Who dotes, yet doubts, suspects, yet fondly loves!
William Shakespeare
Some days I am not sure if my faith is riddled with doubt or whether, graciously, my doubt is riddled with faith.
Lauren F. Winner
Every man who accomplishes things sees first in his mind what he wishes to do. He puts away all doubt. It makes no difference how small or how large the thing you want to do may be; if you have an unlimited confidence in your ability to do it, you will do
Charles Fillmore
There’s no doubt that motherhood is the best thing in my life. It’s all that really matters.
Courteney Cox
The minute you begin to have doubts, the floor under your feet starts to shake.
Kobo Abe
I’m not ashamed of any of my papers at all and I’m rather sick of snobs that tell us that they’re bad papers, snobs who only read papers that no one else wants. I doubt if they read many papers at all.
Rupert Murdoch
There’s no doubt that I’m a better president now than when I first took office. This is not a job where there’s a manual, and over time you get a better sense of what’s important, what’s not, how to see around corners and anticipate problems, as opposed to just managing problems once they’ve arrived.
Barack Obama
His heavy-lidded gaze reflected a languor that had nothing to do with having just awakened, and there was no doubt what was on his mind. But this is no safe cherry picker, Gwen thought, growing more concerned by the moment. This man looks like a cherry tree chopper-downer.
Karen Marie Moning
I was regarded as the school freak which further reinforced a lot of inhibitions and doubts I had about myself. I was a shy, frightened teenager for a long time.
Winona Ryder
Doubt was much more energy efficient than conviction.
Gregory Maguire
The relationship between commitment and doubt is by no means an antagonistic one. Commitment is healthiest when it is not without doubt but in spite of doubt.
Rollo May
There can be no doubt that all our knowledge begins with experience.
Immanuel Kant
Men become civilized, not in proportion to their willingness to believe, but in proportion to their readiness to doubt.
Ambrose Bierce
in America, far too large a portion of the diet consists of animal food. As a nation, the Americans are proverbial for the gross and luxurious diet with which they load their tables; and there can be no doubt that the general health of the nation would be increased by a change in our customs in this respect.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
How it came to pass that man, originally taught, as we doubt not he was, to know and to worship the true Jehovah, is found, at so early a period of his history, a worshiper of baser objects, it is foreign to our present purpose to inquire.
Simon Greenleaf
To doubt is worse than to have lost; And to despair is but to antedate those miseries that must fall on us.
Philip Massinger
You will encounter many distractions and many temptations to put your goal aside: The security of a job, a wife who wants kids, whatever. But if you hang in there, always following your vision, I have no doubt you will succeed.
Larry Flynt
Doubt everything or believe everything: these are two equally convenient strategies. With either we dispense with the need for reflection.
Henri Poincare
Without doubt, there are lots of ways to measure the pulse of a business. But if you have employee engagement, customer satisfaction, and cash flow right, you can be sure your company is healthy and on the way to winning.
Jack Welch
The two-thirds rule of the Senate, which can be changed only by constitutional amendment, will no doubt continue for a long time to come. Like monogamy, it is not completely satisfactory, but, like monogamy, it has won general if somewhat grudging acquiescence.
Thomas A. Bailey
WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES when we go against our instincts? What are the consequences of not speaking out? What are the consequences of guilt, shame, and doubt?
Terry Tempest Williams
When in doubt, parenthesize. At the very least it will let some poor schmuck bounce on theВ % key in vi.
Larry Wall
Of one thing there is no doubt: if Paris makes demands of the heart, then Munich makes demands of the stomach.
Rachel Johnson
I do not know why the dead do not come back to life. Perhaps death is so wonderful, in ways we cannot comprehend, that they prefer it over and above their friends and loved ones, although I am inclined to doubt that be the case.
Tom Robbins
In his voice resonated the timbre of a man who thinks he has convinced himself of an idea, but masks his own doubt by laboring to persuade others.
Katherine Howe
With faith, you may get stuck in a very big lie and may lose the truth forever; but with doubt, you can always reach the truth!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
You want to be as dominant as possible and you want to put some doubt in the hitters’ heads. That’s what I’m trying to do every single time I’m on the mound.
Eric Gagne
Without somehow destroying me in the process, how could God reveal himself in a way that would leave no room for doubt? If there were no room for doubt, there would be no room for me.
Frederick Buechner
Any belief that puts itself beyond doubt nurtures its own collapse.
Stephen R. Donaldson
You hate me because I am the embodiment of all your doubts.
Madalyn Murray O’Hair
No doubt, I am earning more money with my endorsements than I ever earned playing soccer.
Look at your life as an experiment. Make a comprise with all your doubts and fears: For a year or two, do what you can to move toward your ideal scene, in a easy and relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way. See what happens.
Mark Allen
Let us not imagine that we obscure the glory of the Son by the great praise we lavish on the Mother; for the more she is honored, the greater is the glory of her Son. There can be no doubt that whatever we say in praise of the Mother gives equal praise to the Son.
Bernard of Clairvaux
Plant a radish, get a radish, never any doubt. That’s why I love vegetables, you know what they’re about!
Tom Jones
Be persistent and never give up. I had to deal with facing stereotypes and had a lot of people doubt me and my ability to drum, but I didn’t let it phase me. You just have to believe in yourself. And of course, PRACTICE.
Jess Bowen
I could well believe that it is God’s intention, since we have refused milder remedies, to compel [Christians] into unity, by persecution even. Satan is without doubt nothing else than a hammer in the hand of a benevolent and severe God.
C. S. Lewis
I have no doubt that you are more than capable of bringing the Monsean queen and my son and the rest of my sons and a hundred Nanderan kittens through an onslaught of howling raiders if you chose to.
Kristin Cashore
Intellectual freedom means the right to re-examine much that has been long taken for granted. A free man must be a reasoning man, and he must dare doubt what a legislative or electoral majority may most passionately assert.
Robert H. Jackson
I know what I’m capable of doing. Never a doubt in my mind.
A. J. Green
Cleave ever to the sunnier side of doubt.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is no death the way we understood it. The body dies, but not the soul.
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Spring’s greatest joy beyond a doubt is when it brings the children out.
Edgar Guest
The more frequently you focus on your appreciation and gratitude for each breath, the greater will be your sense of daily gratitude… Now say, ‘I am joyfully grateful for each and every breath.’ If you have any doubt of your gratitude, just imagine the alternative for a moment – not being able to breathe!
Zelig Pliskin
Gold is a wonderful clearer of the understanding; it dissipates every doubt and scruple in an instant.
Joseph Addison
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
Inter have bought the finished article and there’s no doubt he can keep improving.
Mick McCarthy
When faith replaces doubt, when selfless service eliminates selfish striving, the power of God brings to pass His purposes.
Thomas S. Monson
The greatest gains and values are farthest from being appreciated. We easily come to doubt if they exist. We soon forget them. They are the highest reality.
Henry David Thoreau
We doubt that any facts actually exist. We only have observations and interpretations. Most of the interpretations remain questionable.
Peter J. Carroll
With the world in turmoil and doubt, the American people, faithful to the values that have always defined America’s identity, have expressed with force their faith in progress and the future. At a time when we must face huge challenges together, your election has raised enormous hope in France, in Europe and beyond.
Nicolas Sarkozy
The point is, there are some things worth dying for. There’s no doubt about that. And I would die for my family. I would die for my freedom. I would die for my country.
Rick Warren
I understand people have doubts, but I’m totally clean.
Michael Irvin
A role model in the flesh provides more than inspiration; his or her very existence is confirmation of possibilities one may have every reason to doubt, saying, “Yes, someone like me can do this.”
Sonia Sotomayor
Enthusiasm for the universe, in knowing as well as in creating, also answers the question of doubt and meaninglessness. Doubt is the necessary tool of knowledge. And meaninglessness is no threat so long as enthusiasm for the universe and for man as its center is alive.
Paul Tillich
Modest doubt is called the beacon of the wise.
William Shakespeare
I suppose that by this time they had finished their dressing. Roger Scurvilegs tells us nothing on such important matters; no doubt from modesty. “Next morning they rose,” he says, and disappoints us of a picture of Udo brushing his hair.
A. A. Milne
Medicine heals doubts as well as diseases.
Karl Marx
Great doubt will eventually lead to great awakening.
Rabia Basri
You must believe me when I believe, and not when I doubt.
Edmond Rostand
In the present age doubt has become immune to faith and faith has dissociated itself from doubt.
Gabriel Vahanian
Christianity, Christ, heaven, hell, the judgment, sin, holiness, God,–these, and whether they be true, or false, and our personal relations to them, whether they be right or wrong, are things to know about, not to be doubting or guessing about.
Herrick Johnson
We did it!” I said, feeling limp with relief. “It actually worked!” Dr. Turgenev rubbed his forehead. “I had very big doubts.” “Big doubts?” I said weakly. The Russian scientist shrugged. “I am pessimist,” he said.
Kenneth Oppel
Anfield is the best place in the world to play football; there’s no doubt about it. The atmosphere is incredible, and we always get so much strength from our supporters in every single game.
Roberto Firmino
If you are ever in doubt as to whether to kiss a pretty girl, always give her the benefit of the doubt.
Thomas Carlyle
If, because of anxiety and self-doubt, you procrastinate and only think about working, you’ll feel more exhausted than if you’d created for hours.
Eric Maisel
and then Zach said a really bad word, but I doubt DeeDee noticed because it was in Farsi
Ally Carter
It is easier to believe than to doubt.
Gene Fowler
…you have to have faith that you are doing God’s will. Sometimes you will not understand. Sometimes you will doubt. But if you are doing God’s will, you can’t be wrong, you can’t go wrong.
Philippa Gregory
If the Savior had come back to earth at the beginning of the fifth century A.D., I doubt whether he would have recognized the Christian Church as the one that claimed descent from that which he had established, so far had it gone astray.
Milton R. Hunter
I think most religious people experience just as much doubt as they do faith; they just don’t admit it. (13)
Elna Baker
Social life is filled with doubts and vain aspirings; solitude, when the imagination is dethroned, is turned to weariness and ennui.
Letitia Elizabeth Landon
He whom God chooseth, out of doubt doth well:
What they that choose their God do, who can tell?
Sir Fulke Greville
When I sit here and see that the eight brothers from the neighborhood that I grew up with still have success, it had to be magical. I doubt if you get another ‘Wu-Tang Clan.’ That might be harder than getting the new ‘Jackson Five.’ Certain groups you only get one time, and we just happened to be that group.
There will be no doubt about His having chosen you when you have chosen Him.
Charles Spurgeon
The only thing that can stop you is the doubt that you carry in your mind.
William C. Richardson
I’m going to always rise above the doubt that may exist about me.
No doubt metaphors are dangerous- and perhaps especially so in philosophy. But a prohibition against their use would be a willful and harmful restriction upon our powers of inquiry.
Max Black
When did ignorance become a point of view?
Scott Adams
There’s no doubt I’m emotional.
Sidney Crosby
In terms of the romantic kind of lead, I just never enjoy those movies very much. Maybe they’ll come to interest me more as I get older. I doubt it, but maybe. Romantic comedies tend to be, for me, an oxymoron.
Christian Bale
To have any doubt in your body is the biggest weakness an athlete can have.
Shawn Johnson
It’s murder to doubt yourself in life. It took until I was 45 to get to that point. As hard as it is in your work, it’s harder in your life. But it can be done.
Alan Arkin
Noble hearts are neither jealous nor afraid because jealousy spells doubt and fear spells pettiness.
Honore de Balzac
There is no doubt PC prices will be coming down.
Bill Gates
Persecution in intellectual countries produces a superficial conformity, but also underneath an intense, incessant, implacable doubt.
Walter Bagehot
Well, I’ll put it this way: you can certainly say belief in God makes people behave worse. That can be proved beyond a doubt.
Christopher Hitchens
Many journalists are influenced by a myopic multiculturalism that is suspicious of anything Western, while giving the benefit of the doubt to non-Western societies.
Nancy Pearcey
No greater blessing could come to our land today than a revival of the spirit of religion. I doubt if there is any problem in the world today — social, political, or economic — that would not find happy solution if approached in the spirit of the Sermon on the Mount.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
My idea is this, that when you only love a little you’re naturally not jealous — or are only jealous also a little, so that it doesn’t matter. But when you love in a deeper and intenser way, then you’re in the very same proportion jealous; your jealousy has intensity and, no doubt, ferocity.
Henry James
There was never any doubt in our minds that men and women were equal, if not more so.
Al Gore
There can be no doubt that the average man blames much more than he praises. His instinct is to blame. If he is satisfied he says nothing; if he is not, he most illogically kicks up a row.
Golda Meir
The greatest power God gave us is the power to choose. We have the opportunity to choose whether we’re going to act or procrastinate, believe or doubt, pray or curse, help or heal. We also choose whether we’re going to be happy or whether we’re going to be sad.
Lou Holtz
No man can well doubt the propriety of placing a president of the United States under the most solemn obligations to preserve, protect, and defend the constitution.
Joseph Story
When a society has doubts about its future, it tends to produce spokesmen whose main appeal is to the emotions, who argue from intuitions, and whose claim to be truth-bearers rests solely on intense personal feeling.
Kenneth Tynan
I might as well doubt of my own being, as of the being of those things I actually see and feel.
George Berkeley
If you turned the fabric of our lives over, I imagined the design on the backside would be woven in the bleak grays of doubt and fear.
Stephenie Meyer
When in doubt, do the obvious.
Joy Browne
By doubting we are led to enquire, and by enquiry weВ perceiveВ the truth.
Peter Abelard
Could there be any doubt that the Jews would seek to harm the Son of God again, knowing that his body was now readily accessible in the form of defenseless crackers?
Sam Harris
Pain was something we were expected to endure. But I doubt very much if you would be entirely happy today if a doctor threw a towel in your face and jumped on you with a knife.
Roald Dahl
I don’t need you to agree with me,” she said quietly.” I’ll go away happy with a little bit of doubt. Doubt is good. It’s an emotion we can build on. Perhaps if we feed it with curiosity it will blossom into something useful, like suspicion – and action.
Jasper Fforde
There can be no doubt … of our dependence upon forces beyond our control. Primitive man was so impotent in the face of these forces that g , especially in an unfavorable natural environment, fear became a dominant attitude, and, as the old saying goes, fear created gods.
John Dewey
There is no doubt that as an economy grows in a great way like India has, that you have to step back and change your tax systems, because you start to get more disparities of wealth.
Bill Gates
Knowing without any doubt that the newly elected cannot help but be his zombies, Obama is the cat who swallowed the canary.
Judi McLeod
For every gain in deep certitude there is a corresponding growth of superficial “doubt.” This doubt is by no means opposed to genuine faith, but it mercilessly examines and questions the spurious “faith” of everyday life, the human faith which is nothing but the passive acceptance of conventional opinion.
Thomas Merton
Most of all, I want you to know without a doubt that I’ve got your back. And your front. And your sides. I’ve got all of you and I’m not letting go.
Maya Banks
There’s fish in the sea, no doubt of it, As good as ever came out of it.
W. S. Gilbert
The rationalist mind has always had its doubts about Venice. The watery city receives a dry inspection, as though it were a myth for the credulous- poets and honeymooners.
Mary McCarthy
Most of us, I suppose, are a little nervous of the sea. No matter what its smiles may be, we doubt its friendship.
H. M. Tomlinson
Never doubt what comes from the heart, your feelings know you better than anything else.
Leon Brown
Doubt is to certainty as neurosis is to psychosis. The neurotic is in doubt and has fears about persons and things; the psychotic has convictions and makes claims about them. In short, the neurotic has problems, the psychotic has solutions.
Thomas Szasz
There can be no doubt that distrust of words is less harmful than unwarranted trust in them.
Vaclav Havel
I don’t think you understand what levels or what fears until you have a child of your own. I mean, I’ve never loved someone so much and I’ve never been so afraid in my life. And the truth is I would kill someone, whoever tried to hurt him. I would. I have no doubt about it.
Maria Bello
Almost the moment he died, they put him in Playboy as one of the greatest drummers, which he was – there’s no doubt about it. There’s never been anybody since. He’s one of the greatest drummers that ever lived.
Jimmy Page
The people around you are you. They share your history. They can even write it with you. And when you lose one, there’s no doubt you lose some of yourself, however they’re lost.
Danny Wallace
I find that what doubt does, or fear, is it makes you come up with as many ideas as you possibly can. And on film that works ’cause you’re then handing over that fear to the director, who has to make sense of all those options!
Eddie Redmayne
The pursuit of pretty formulas and neat theorems can no doubt quickly degenerate into a silly vice, but so can the quest for austere generalities which are so very general indeed that they are incapable of application to any particular.
E. T. Bell
The crows maintain that a single crow could destroy the heavens. There is no doubt of that, but it proves nothing against the heavens, for heaven simply means: the impossibility of crows.
Franz Kafka
I think that there’s no doubt that to work in film is a bit more of a creative journey. It’s not that I don’t put the same time or heart into something that’s on television.
William Fichtner
I have no doubt that I’d be a marvelous father. Maybe not when they’re tiny, but when they’re a little bit older, I think I’d be rather good.
Hugh Grant
I don’t have any doubt in my mind: I could knock out any man in the heavyweight division.
Deontay Wilder
Because your eyes are slant and slow, Because your hair is sweet to touch, My heart is high again; but oh, I doubt if this will get me much.
Dorothy Parker
It’s unhealthy for people to never express any kind of negativity or doubt. To have balance, you need to address that side of your thoughts as well as the positive. Otherwise, you tend toward crazy.
Shirley Manson
All fanaticism is repressed doubt.
Carl Jung
The story of Doubting Thomas is told, not so that we shall admire Thomas, but so that we can admire the other apostles in comparison. Thomas demanded evidence … The other apostles, whose faith was so strong that they did not need evidence, are held to us as worthy of imitation.
Richard Dawkins
Again the important point to remember is that you should keep asking yourself questions. Do not make statements. Ask questions to yourself. The mind hates that.
Robert Adams
Americans like to give their President the benefit of the doubt.
John Dean
‘These things will become clear to you,’ said the old man gently, ‘at least,’ he added with slight doubt in his voice, ‘clearer than they are at the moment.’
Douglas Adams
If you’re not having doubt, you’re not pushing the boundaries far enough.
Tony Fadell
What, then is our duty? It is to carefully distinguish the historic moment in which we live and to consciously assign our small energies to a specific battlefield. The more we are in phase with the current which leads the way, the more we aid man in his difficult, uncertain, danger-fraught ascent toward salvation.
Nikos Kazantzakis
The heart [of my work], the quintessential, remains the questioning of photographic truth. Be careful, be critical, doubt, and filter the information you receive.
Joan Fontcuberta
Doubt the man who swears to his devotion.
Louise Colet
No doubt, my role in ‘Urumi’ has been one of my best so far. It surprised me as an actor and made me more confident.
Genelia D’Souza
That seems to be crossing some kind of line,” I say. :So anything goes?” They both stare at me- Beetee with doubt, Gale with hostility. “I guess there isn’t a rule book for what might be unacceptable to do to another human being.
Suzanne Collins
He that is overcautious will accomplish little.
Friedrich Schiller
When young, you’re shocked by the number of people who turn out to have feet of clay. Older, you’re surprised by the number of people who don’t.
Malcolm Forbes
I have no doubts that the Devil grins, As seas of ink I spatter. Ye gods, forgive my “literary” sins – The other kind don’t matter.
Robert W. Service
An argument may remove doubt, but only the Holy Spirit can convict of truth.
Ravi Zacharias
I doubt whether any girl would be satisfied with her lover’s mind if she knew the whole of it.
Anthony Trollope
Generally, I think America is America. America has been through suffering like other countries, but America will come up. I have no doubt. It’s just going to bounce. You know, you have ups and downs.
Ivana Trump
The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow- witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of doubt, what is laid before him.
Leo Tolstoy
REVIEW, v.t. To set your wisdom (holding not a doubt of it./ Although in truth there’s neither bone nor skin to it)/ At work upon a book, and so read out of it/ The qualities that you have first read into it.
Ambrose Bierce
Politics is ugly. Never doubt what small men will do for great power.
Paolo Bacigalupi
Who never doubted, never half believed. Where doubt is, there truth is – it is her shadow.
Ambrose Bierce
In completing one discovery we never fail to get an imperfect knowledge of others of which we could have no idea before, so that we cannot solve one doubt without creating several new ones.
Joseph Priestley
There is no doubt there is more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, caused by the burning of fossil fuels. It should have an effect on the climate, but the numbers indicate that effect is relatively minor.
John Christy
You know what ‘DOUBT’ stands for? It stands for ‘Debate On Understanding Bewildersome Thoughts.’
Gary Busey
It was a trap after all,” Alric said. He turned to Royce. “My apologies for doubting your sound paranoia.
Michael J. Sullivan
One must verify or expel his doubts, and convert them into the certainty of Yes or NO.
Thomas Carlyle
When New Labour came to power, we got a Right-wing Conservative government. I came to realise that voting Labour wasn’t in Scotland’s interests any more. Any doubt I had about that was cast aside for ever when I saw Gordon Brown cosying up to Margaret Thatcher in Downing Street.
Jimmy Reid
faith without doubt is addiction
Salman Rushdie
To have any doubt in your body is the biggest weakness an athlete can have. There are times when I physically can’t get myself to go for a skill because I’m thinking, ‘My knee hurts really bad.’
Shawn Johnson
For the few little successes I may seem to have, there are acres of misgivings and self-doubt.
Sylvia Plath
No doubt a leader or leaders can make that culture more effective or less effective, by the way that we behave. Most importantly, but also by what we say, what we stress, what we reward.
Doug McMillon
Doubt is not always a sign that a man is wrong; it may be a sign that he is thinking.
Oswald Chambers
Roger King is, without a doubt, the greatest salesman in the history of anything. And I don’t ever limit him just to television. He could sell you anything.
Merv Griffin
‘See Spot run!’ is a perfect sentence in some ways. But I doubt the critics would say it was.
Greg Iles
I make myself suffer with a lot of self doubt.
Joan Osborne
Religion? Yes, I know it well; I’ve heard its prayers and creeds, And seen men put them all to shame with poor, half-hearted deeds. They follow Christ, but far away; they wander and they doubt. I’ll serve him in a better way, and live his precepts out.
Henry Van Dyke
There’s no doubt that I’ve deserved my enemies, but I don’t think I’ve deserved my friends.
Walt Whitman
Donald Trump didn’t even understand, right, that [Vladimir] Putin was playing him. So, in Putin’s mind, I have no doubt that Putin thinks that he’s an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation, although Putin would never say that.
Michael Morell
Intensely vivid characters, terrible crimes, and a brutal deep-frozen landscape all prove beyond a reasonable doubt that cold nurtures good and evil as readily as heat … and that Giles Blunt is a really tremendous crime novelist.
Lee Child
There can be little doubt that many egalitarians are motivated at least partly by envy.
Henry Hazlitt
To believe is to be strong. Doubt cramps energy. Belief is power.
Frederick William Robertson
A reasonable doubt is nothing more than a doubt for which reasons can be given. The fact that 1 or 2 men out of 12 differ from the others does not establish that their doubts are reasonable.
Lord Hailsham
I have no doubt that historians will conclude that we of the twentieth century had intelligence enough to create a great civilization but not the moral wisdom to preserve it.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
Some people claim that marriage interferes with romance. There’s no doubt about it. Anytime you have a romance, your wife is bound to interfere.
Groucho Marx
Anyone who believes that men and women have the same mind-set hasn’t lived on earth. A man thinks that everything he does is wonderful, that the sun rises and sets around him. But a woman has doubts.
Margo Kaufman
Despair is the conclusion of fools.
Benjamin Disraeli
A true champion knows how to overcome doubts and manage those doubts and turn them into motivation.
Misty Hyman
Without doubt, in animation each frame is important, every movement defines the character.
Lucrecia Martel
Many of us believe that ‘real artists’ do not experience self-doubt. In truth, artists are people who have learned to live with doubt and do the work anyway.
Julia Cameron
But when you first embark on the Path, your awareness won’t be focused. You’re likely to see all sorts of strange, dreamlike scenes. But you shouldn’t doubt that all such scenes come from your own mind and nowhere else.
I do not know how much they see through the Mist. I doubt it would matter to them if they knew the truth. Sometimes mortals can be more horrible than monsters.
Rick Riordan
I have no doubt that faith is only pure when it does not negate the faith of another. I have no doubt that evil can be fought and that indifference is no option. I have no doubt that fanaticism is dangerous. And of all the books in the world on life, I have no doubt that the life of one person weighs more than them all.
Elie Wiesel
In fact, now I come to think of it, do we decide questions, at all? We decide answers, no doubt: but surely the questions decide us? It is the dog, you know, that wags the tail–not the tail that wags the dog.
Lewis Carroll
To prolong doubt was to prolong hope.
Charlotte Bronte
Conservatism is the policy of make no change and consult your grandmother when in doubt.
Woodrow Wilson
I’m a reasonable kind of guy. If I hear something that seems to make sense, I’m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. If the alternative explanation has to be pounded into shape before it fits the mould of our experience, it seems to me that it’s unlikely to be true.
Frank Schatzing
My work is known by too few people for me to be remembered as a writer – that is, beyond those dedicated souls (bless them) who have followed the oeuvre through its various stages. To be realistic, when they and the last of my friends have died, I doubt I shall be remembered at all.
John Scott
There is no doubt that this film is autobiographical, but at the same time it also tries to portray an ordinary couple in a language that everyone can understand.
Sophie Marceau
To ride a bicycle properly is very like a love affair-chiefly it is a matter of faith. Believe you do it, and the thing is done; doubt, and, for the life of you, you cannot.
H. G. Wells
Try to overcome your doubt. Believe you are beautiful. Look at yourself through someone else’s green eyes. Believe someone out there will find you and kiss your skin until you can feel it blister with the heat. Believe in something bigger than your problems and you will be saved.
Max Bemis
Suspicion amongst thoughts are like bats amongst birds, they never fly by twilight.
Francis Bacon
I would say I grew without a doubt. My whole energy in life – as an artist and as a person – has definitely got me smarter and wiser.
Lil Durk
The sense of spiritual relief which comes from rejecting the idea of God as a supernatural being is enormous.
Julian Huxley
Belief is better than anything else, and it is best when rapt – above paying its respects to anybody’s doubt whatsoever.
Robert Frost
If you don’t live though and drop dead from it, can the Simi eat you? Akri says the Simi can’t eat no living people, but he never said no doubt them newly dead people. Maybe that’s why he don’t let me near them fresh dead. (Simi)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
It is the imagination pressing back against the pressure of reality. It seems, in the last analysis, to have something to do with our self-preservation; and that, no doubt, is why the expression of it, the sound of its words, helps us to live our lives.
Wallace Stevens
I always had a deep affection for Malcolm and felt that he had a great ability to put his finger on the existence and the root of the problem. He was an eloquent spokesman for his point of view and no one can honestly doubt that Malcolm had a great concern for the problems we face as a race.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Doubt is probably the biggest obstacle to overcome. Once you rise above doubt, you are on your way to success.
Theo Rossi
The recent arrest of Younis Tsouli in the United Kingdom was no doubt a significant victory in the war against online terrorism. Tsouli was one of a very select few individuals who have successfully used the Internet as a means to network and share resources with a host of Al-Qaida-linked terrorist organizations.
Evan Kohlmann
Two decades from now, I doubt that the home building industry, so called, will even exist as we have known it.
James Howard Kunstler
The right use of leisure is no doubt a harder problem than the right use of our working hours. The soul is dyed the color of its leisure thoughts.
William Ralph Inge
There is no doubt about it, Messi’s clearly the best player in the world. He’s a phenomenon who has already won everything, but is still hungry for more. His humbleness only makes him greater.
Marco van Basten
It’s kind of a rule of thumb for me to self-doubt going into any kind of project. I always think that I shouldn’t be doing it and I don’t know how to do it and I’m going to fail and that I fooled them. I always try to find a way out.
Heath Ledger
The only thing that keeps us going back to one another is that we’re all filled with such enormous self-doubt. We have doubts about our ability to be alone, to self-actualize.
Stephen Colbert
Nobody is surprised that women writers accurately represent male characters over and over again, no doubt because everybody knows that women understand men much better than vice-versa.
Peter Straub
Philosophers have widely differed as to the seat of the soul, and St. Paul has told us that out of the heart proceed murmurings; but there can be no doubt that the seat of perfect contentment is in the head, for every individual is thoroughly satisfied with his own proportion of brains.
Charles Caleb Colton
There is no doubt that the new wave [of attacks] in Palestine will wipe off this stigma [Israel] from the face of the Islamic world.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Authority has every reason to fear the skeptic, for authority can rarely survive in the face of doubt.
Robert M. Lindner
Do I remain a revolutionary? Intellectually — without a doubt. But am I prepared to give my body to the struggle or even my comforts? This is what I puzzle about.
Lorraine Hansberry
If a man is in doubt whether it would be better for him to expose himself to martyrdom or not, he should not do it. He must be convinced that he has a delegation from heaven.
Samuel Johnson
I have no doubt that the real irritation of those on the religious right is not that their particular creed is not embraced by the schools, but that often their creed is the only one singled out for contempt.
William Bennett
No doubt Western civilization has in the past been full of wars and revolutions, and the national elements in our culture, even when they were ignored, always provided an unconscious driving force of passion and aggressive self-assertion.
Christopher Dawson
The absurd is a shadow cast over everything we do and even if we try to live life as if it has meaning as if there are reasons for doing things the absurd will linger in the back of our minds as a nagging doubt that perhaps there is no point.
Albert Camus
If heartaches and tears and shadows of doubt are part of the deal
you can count me out
but if your talking about a game I can win
You can count me in
Deana Carter
The business of the philosopher is well done if he succeeds in raising genuine doubt.
Morris Raphael Cohen
When in doubt, doubt the doubt!
Deepak Chopra
I love doubt in a woman. It’s nearly as sexy as determination.
Irvine Welsh
When the brain isn’t working properly and we don’t understand how to calibrate the brain for optimal performance we are going to feel these doubts, fears and anxieties and most people when this happens they don’t understand why and they let that paralyze them.
John Assaraf
[My study of the universe] leaves little doubt that life has occurred on other planets. I doubt if the human race is the most intelligent form of life.
Harold Urey
Do something today that reflects who you are, what you are capable of, what you care about. Give yourself plenty of evidence of what you can do, and you will not doubt your abilities to do anything.
David Niven
If you tried to doubt everything you would not get as far as doubting anything. The game of doubting itself presupposes certainty.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
I was going through some stuff regarding my mom and dad. There was 30 years difference [between them], so when you hear the lyric, “Girl I love you / You know I do / And I do not doubt / That you love me too / But you’re so young / Your life has just begun”, that’s what I was wondering. They were married for 44 years.
Andy Kim
I have no doubt that it is part of the destiny of the human race in its gradual improvement, to leave off eating animals.
Henry David Thoreau
If I am elected President, the Castro regime will have no reason to doubt our unwavering commitment to your cause. The regime will feel the full weight of American resolve.
Mitt Romney
There was no doubt that there was a vast organization which was making fools of all the liberals in Hollywood and taking their money, that there was a police state among the Left element in Hollywood and Broadway.
Elia Kazan
Sometimes I do get writer’s block but it’s more of a writer’s doubt – I’ll try and write but nothing goes anywhere because I start thinking everything sucks.
Robin Pecknold
Authority has every reason to fear the skeptic, for authority can rarely survive in the face of doubt.
Vita Sackville-West
Everything stated or expressed by man is a note in the margin of a completely erased text. From what’s in the note we can extract the gist of what must have been in the text, but there’s always a doubt, and the possible meanings are many.
Fernando Pessoa
I have no doubt that the nation has suffered more from undue secrecy than from undue disclosure. The government takes good care of itself.
Daniel Schorr
I was a sinner. I knew that without a doubt. But I was not alone. And the night was the accomplice of us all.
William Kent Krueger
Percy looked at Coach Hedge and Frank. “A trap?” “Probably,” Frank said. “She’s not mortal,” Hedge said, sniffing the air. “Probably some kind of goat-eating, demigod-destroying fiend from Tartarus.” “No doubt,” Percy agreed. “Awesome.” Hedge grinned. “Let’s go.
Rick Riordan
The man who is gloomy, taciturn and lives in a world of doubt seldom achieves more than a bare living. There have been a few who have groaned their way through to a competence, but in proportion to that overwhelming number of souls who carry cheer through life, they are as nothing – mere drops in the bucket.
Douglas Fairbanks
There is no doubt that a parallel exists between the big bang as an event and the Christian notion of creation from nothing.
George Smoot
Even while you are in doubt, there will be an answer you will arrive to. Even while you are in pain, your happiness will be waiting.
Katsura Hoshino
The torch of doubt and chaos, this is what the sage steers by.
A lot of people see doubt as legitimate philosophical posture. They think of themselves in the middle, whereas of course really, they’re nowhere.
John le Carre
The Koran is a not ‘a product of Muhammad or even of Arabia,’ but a collection of earlier Judeo-Christian liturgical materials stitched together to meet the needs of a later age…A few scholars go even further, doubting even the existence of Muhammad.
Daniel Pipes
I believe without a single shadow of a doubt that it is necessary for young people to learn to make choices. Learning to make right choices is the only way they will survive in an increasingly frightening world.
Lois Lowry
Instead of showing strangers kindness and giving them the benefit of the doubt, we increasingly show them only fear, and that is bad for us and them.
Julian Baggini
Where there is peace and meditation, there is neither anxiety nor doubt.
Saint Francis de Sales
People always tend to give the benefit of the doubt to allow people to explain the context [of their words].
Keli Goff
When we bring back with us the objects most dear, and find those we left unchanged, we are tempted to doubt the lapse of time; but one link in the chain of affection broken, and every thing seems altered.
Marguerite Gardiner
It’s fine if you doubt me. Underestimate me, because then I’ll just impress you, you know.
Madison Beer
The journalist’s first allegiance is to those who receive the work. Although there is no doubt that many owners and business managers of news organizations also have a deep allegiance to the public, that allegiance is necessarily alloyed with their concern for their own point of view or for the bottom line.
Bill Kovach
It is not scientific doubt, not atheism, not pantheism, not agnosticism, that in our day and in this land is likely to quench the light of the gospel. It is a proud, sensuous, selfish, luxurious, church-going, hollow-hearted prosperity.
Francis Chan
Oft from new truths, and new phrase, new doubts grow, As strange attire aliens the men we know.
John Donne
But I can’t confront the doubts I have. I can’t admit that maybe the past was bad, and so, for the sake of momentum I’m condemning the future to death so it can match the past.
Aimee Mann
If I were the devil I should broadcast doubts about the truths and relevance and good sense and straightforwardness of the Bible … At all costs I should want to keep them from using their minds in a disciplined way to get the measure of its message.
J. I. Packer
No matter what happens in public—no matter what—don’t doubt that I love you and care about your welfare . . . as much as I am able.
Charlaine Harris
There can be no doubt that, with the United Kingdom, we will lose a very market-oriented voice.
Jean-Claude Juncker
Sometimes if I tell people, ‘I’m afraid that I’m really a fraud,’ or ‘I have a lot of self-doubt,’ they go, ‘Oh, no, you’re kidding.’ I go, ‘No, I’m really honest.’
Al Franken
Occasionally I would like the German people to give us the benefit of the doubt, given our history, as opposed to assuming the worst — assuming that we have been consistently your strong partners and that we share a common set of values.
Barack Obama
Too many doubts grow in the cracks of silence and separation.
Alison Goodman
Do not be troubled for a language, cultivate your soul and she will show herself.
Eugene Delacroix
There’s no doubt about it, earmarks are not very popular. There are good earmarks and bad earmarks. The good earmarks are the ones I get for my district.
Anthony Weiner
There’s no doubt that probably at least once a week, maybe once a day, I said, “Ah, I should have done that better.”
Barack Obama
I’m not going to doubt my life.
Yoko Ono
The negative principle negates. The positive principle creates. The negative principle doubts. The positive principle believes. The negative principle accepts defeat. The positive principle goes for victory.
Norman Vincent Peale
Photographs furnish evidence. Something we hear about, but doubt, seems proven when we’re shown a photograph of it.
Susan Sontag
Prayer must emanate from the heart, where God resides, and not from the head where doctrines and doubts clash.
Sathya Sai Baba
A good novel is a conjunction of many factors, the main of which is without a doubt, hard work.
Mario Vargas Llosa
There is no doubt that I would have won more honours had I signed for Manchester United as a youngster.
Michael Owen
There was no doubt that in the early and mid-eighties that many of us in broadsheet newspapers felt that we still had a responsibility to try to protect the Royal Family or if you like protect the Monarchy from the assaults of the media.
Max Hastings
Before Hurricane Katrina, I always felt like I could come back home. And home was a real place, and also it had this mythical weight for me. Because of the way that Hurricane Katrina ripped everything away, it cast that idea in doubt.
Jesmyn Ward
There is no doubt that a person’s charms are less frequently a cause of love than a remark such as: ‘No, this evening I shan’t be free’.
Marcel Proust
I do good when people doubt me. When someone says I can’t do something, I want to do more. I won’t back down from anybody.
Kenyon Martin
A man’s doubts and fears are his worst enemies.
William Wrigley, Jr.
Once you become self-conscious, there is no end to it; once you start to doubt, there is no room for anything else.
Mignon McLaughlin
The arrogance of poets is only a defense; doubt gnaws the greatest among them; they need our testimony to escape despair.
Francois Mauriac
When I say that I know women, I mean I know that I don’t know them. Every single woman I ever knew is a puzzle to me, as, I have no doubt, she is to herself.
William Makepeace Thackeray
One longs for the presence of a leader like Lincoln, who openly admitted his doubts and as openly preserved his commitment.
Rollo May
The press and the public like certainty and affirmation of popular biases. But real science thrives on the capacity for doubt.
Wendy Kaminer
I have no doubt that the digital immersion of our children will provide a rich life of entertainment and information and knowledge. My concern is that they will not learn, with their passive immersion, the joy and the effort of the third life, of thinking one’s own thoughts and going beyond what is given.
Maryanne Wolf
Let us never doubt everything that ought to happen is going to happen.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Doubt is the middle position between knowledge and ignorance. It encompasses cynicism but also genuine questioning.
Vera Farmiga
We learn from failure, not from success!
Bram Stoker
Without doubt, the most common weakness of all human beings is the habit of leaving their minds open to the negative influence of other people.
Napoleon Hill
The short English miles are delightful for walking. You are always pleased to find, every now and then, in how short a time you have walked a mile, though, no doubt, a mile is everywhere a mile, I walk but a moderate pace, and can accomplish four English miles in an hour.
Karl Philipp Moritz
Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction.
Donald Rumsfeld
My esoteric doctrine, is that if you entertain any doubt, it is safest to take the unpopular side in the first instance. Transit from the unpopular, is easy… but from the popular to the unpopular is so steep and rugged that it is impossible to maintain it.
William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne
Some say if only my fears and doubts will leave then I will get to work. But instead you should get to work and then your fears and doubts will leave.
Dwight L. Moody
Zoroaster said, when in doubt abstain; but this does not always apply. At cards, when in doubt take the trick.
Josh Billings
doubt is a skill. credulity ,by contrast, appears to be something very like an instinct
Kathryn Schulz
Nearly all inmates are drawn from the ranks of the powerless and the poor. A child of privilege frequently receives the benefit of the doubt; a child of poverty seldom does.
Jimmy Carter
I doubt anybody would have pushed me [on the music]. When I was at Sony nobody ever gave me any creative suggestions on the music.
Bela Fleck
The human frame being what it is, heart, body and brain all mixed together, and not contained in separate compartments as they will be no doubt in another million years, a good dinner is of great importance to good talk.В One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.
Virginia Woolf
Even when you have doubts, take that step. Take chances. Mistakes are never a failure – they can be turned into wisdom.
Cat Cora
I believe that we will move forward a little tomorrow but I have my doubts that we will achieve a result.
Angela Merkel
Doubt is the accomplice of tyranny.
Henri Frederic Amiel
For I found myself embarrassed with so many doubts and errors that it seemed to me that the effort to instruct myself had no effect other than th eincreasing discovery of my own ignorance
Rene Descartes
The dead should be judged like criminals, impartially, but they should be allowed the benefit of the doubt.
Samuel Butler
Encounter: Doubt, Shame, Humiliation. It will finally be worth it. Acting is more about courage than anything else.
David Mamet
Don’t turn your back upon your doctrinal doubts and difficulties. Go up to them and examine them. Perhaps the ghastly object which looks to you in the twilight like a sheeted ghost may prove to be no more than a table-cloth hanging upon a hedge.
Andrew Kennedy Hutchison Boyd
If anyone cannot feel the power of God when he looks upon the stars, then I doubt whether he is capable of feeling at all. From the enduring wonder of the heavens flows all grace and power. If anyone thinks it is mindless then he himself must be out of his mind.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
I see that women still have self-doubt, and at the same time I feel like I see all these fantastic young women, and they all have ambition and are so focused on their futures. I don’t think that’s an anomaly anymore.
Mary Harron
Modern science is necessarily a double-edged tool, a tool that cuts both ways. … There is no doubt that a Zeppelin is a wonderful thing; but that did not prevent it from becoming a horrible thing.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
This was charming, no doubt; but they shortly found out That the Captain they trusted so well Had only one notion for crossing the ocean, And that was to tingle his bell.
Lewis Carroll
Without doubt, Thomas Edison is my greatest contemporary.
Henry Ford
I have no doubt in mind that I justify the space I take up in the world.

Whatever doubts or vexations one has in Japan, it is only necessary to ask one’s self: “Well, who are the best people to live with?
Lafcadio Hearn
Without doubt, President [Barack] Obama is a great historical figure.
Henry Louis Gates
Doubt springs from the mind; faith is the daughter of the soul.
Jean Antoine Petit-Senn
To me there’s no doubt I will be fighting for victory.
Jan Ullrich
Good infantry is without doubt the sinews of an army; but if it has to fight a long time against very superior artillery, it will become demoralized and will be destroyed.
Napoleon Bonaparte
Cocteau is someone who has made such a profound impression on me that there’s no doubt he’s influenced every one of my films.
Jacques Rivette
in California death is one of the most successfully kept secrets there is. If you doubt this, try to find a cemetery.
Sheila Ballantyne
How can a rabbi not live with doubt? The Bible itself is a book of doubt.
Arthur Hertzberg
The death of a child is the greatest reason to doubt the existence of God.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
At no point did I ever doubt I would be as near as anybody could be to England’s Elvis Presley. Even from eight or nine years old, I thought, Well, I’ll be the greatest rock star in England. I just made up my mind.
David Bowie
Our preachers weren’t always right, but they were never in doubt.
Mark Lowry
We don’t need to invest all of our faith in every concept, in every symbol, in every opinion that forms the totality of our knowledge. Faith means to believe in something 100% without a doubt, and to doubt our own knowledge can seem like the most frightening thing that can happen to us.
Miguel Angel Ruiz
We may have doubts, but we control the present. We always have the choice to move forward with hope and confidence.
Teri Hatcher
Listen widely to remove your doubts and be careful when speaking about the rest and your mistakes will be few.

Allan Nairn
Sachin Tendulkar is in my time the best player without doubt – daylight second, Brian Lara third.
Shane Warne
Galileo called doubt the father of invention; it is certainly the pioneer.
Christian Nestell Bovee
There is no doubt that we cannot do without variable quantities in the sense of the potential infinite. But from this very fact the necessity of the actual infinite can be demonstrated.
Georg Cantor
How many quarrels, and how important, has the doubt as to the meaning of this syllable “Hoc” produced for the world!
Michel de Montaigne
For the truly faithful, no miracle is necessary. For those who doubt, no miracle is sufficient.
Nancy Gibbs
I never know in advance what I will photograph,…I Go Out into the World and Hope I Will come across something that Imperatively interests me. I Am Addicted to the Found object. I have No doubt that I Will Continue to make Photographs till my last Breath.
Ansel Adams
I tell kids to have dreams, have goals, and believe in them because if you have any doubt, worry or fear, it will choke the life out of your dreams and goals.
Torii Hunter
Never doubt God’s desire or ability to help you.
T. B. Joshua
You need to doubt your doubts & believe your beliefs.
Rick Warren
I am sometimes more doubt than man.
Cecil Palmer
Knowing is higher than believing. Knowing means that there is NO doubt.
Robert Anthony
Guilt can make you doubt yourself at the very moment when you need to proceed with certainty.
Joseph Bruchac
She couldn’t disappoint the whole village. There were no wallscreens here, no newsfeeds or satellites bands, and touring soccer teams were no doubt few and far between. (…), that made stories a valuable commodity, and it probably wasn’t very often that a stranger dropped in from the sky.
Scott Westerfeld
Toyota was the first to put a commercial fuel cell powered car on the road, and I have no doubt that Toyota will continue to be in the front lines in the development of competitive fuel cell vehicles.
Maurice Strong
Segregation in the South is honest, open and aboveboard. Of the two systems, or styles of segregation, the Northern and the Southern, there is no doubt whatever in my mind which is the better.
Strom Thurmond
“The Church of England,” I said, seeing that Mr. Inglesant paused, “is no doubt a compromise.”
Joseph Henry Shorthouse
You don’t doubt that the lobby supporting the enactment of same sex-marriage laws in different states is politically powerful, do you?… As far as I can tell, political figures are falling over themselves to endorse your side of the case.
John Roberts
Do poets have any insight into what’s the right ratio? I doubt it, but I think that they can be awake to what the ends are.
Robert Hass
Doubt is the enemy of creativeness.
Constantin Stanislavski
There is no doubt in my mind that Rudy Giuliani in the Senate will be a leader for the people of New York but also for the people of Arizona and the people all over this country.
John McCain
There’s no doubt that becoming a mother was the greatest thing I’ll ever do
Kim Basinger
There is no doubt that being human is incredibly difficult and cannot be mastered in one lifetime.
Terry Pratchett
Social historians of the future no doubt will be amused by the fact that we late-twentieth-century Americans found it acceptable to discuss publicly in detail the most intimate aspects of personal life, while maintaining an almost prudish reserve concerning the political significance of family life.
Mary Ann Glendon
I have absolutely no doubt that there is an intense anti-Americanism in all Western Europe, and I think the reason for that is a very, very simple one.
Malcolm Muggeridge
Without a doubt. It’s woven into our DNA in a very deep way and so to kind of be smacked in the face with the hypocrisy of the America that we were sold was a liberating and harsh experience.
Bill Ayers
What if?’ history is a tricky game, but there is no doubt that the senior planners of D-Day – including Eisenhower and the British general Bernard Montgomery – believed that the Double Cross operation had played a pivotal role in the victory.
Ben Macintyre
Take this to heart and doubt not that you are the one who killed Christ. Your sins certainly did, and when you see the nails driven through his hands, be sure that you are pondering, and when the thorns pierce his brow, know that they are your evil thoughts.
Martin Luther
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
Without a doubt, my richest relationships are my long-term friendships with musical partners, because we make music together. That’s what we love to do with our lives.
Chick Corea
The only thing that matters is to have charm and expression. Then comes that horrible gnawing doubt of our own magnetism. Is it possible that, though we are not lovely, we are not irresistible either? That we will have to go through life belonging neither to the triumphantly beautiful nor to the triumphantly ugly?
Elizabeth Bibesco
Of course in science there are things that are open to doubt and things need to be discussed. But among the things that science does know, evolution is about as certain as anything we know.
Richard Dawkins
No doubt but ye are the People – absolute, strong and wise;
Whatever your hear has desired ye have not withheld from your eyes.
On your own heads, in your own hands, the sin and the saving lies!
Rudyard Kipling
When hard times come, the greatest danger does not necessarily lie in the circumstances we face, but rather in the way we treat ourselves at the time. Nothing is more dangerous than self-hate. Nothing makes it more difficult to heal or to find the grace of peace than self-attack and the agony of self-doubt.
Stephen Schwartz
I have no doubt that most people who listen to Alison Krauss and say they like bluegrass have never heard real bluegrass played in the traditional manner, and probably don’t even know who Bill Monroe is.
Mark O’Connor
I have somewhat lost my enthusiasm in the last years. Mainly because film students using digital video these days have not really produced anything which is more than superficial or simplistic; so I have my doubts.
Abbas Kiarostami
There’s no doubt now that Russia has used cyber attacks against all kinds of organizations in America, and I am deeply concerned about this.
Hillary Clinton
It has been said “the truth will make men free”. The truth alone has never set anyone free. It is only DOUBT which will bring mental emancipation.
Anton Szandor LaVey
To have great faith is to have great power, because your intent, your will, is undivided. When your word isn’t dissipated by doubt, the power of your word becomes even stronger.
Miguel Angel Ruiz
Standing up for what’s right is a huge burden to bear. It’s normal to have some doubt.
Daisy Whitney
To doubt the experience is to discourage it. Let it be developed, see what is in it.
Sri Aurobindo
If one hesitates in his path, let him not proceed. Let him respect his doubts, for doubts, too, may have some divinity in them.
Henry David Thoreau
Strange and mysterious name to give to the spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish souls? Doubt it not!
Albert Pike
You telling me it’s only been a couple other people that you’ve been with
Imma trust you Imma give you the benefit of the doubt and Imma love you
You can even call me daddy, give you someone to look up to
We must doubt the certainty of everything which passes through the senses, but how much more ought we to doubt things contrary to the senses, such as the existence of God and the soul.
Leonardo da Vinci
Doubts must be resolved alone within the soul. Otherwise one would profane one’s own powerful solution.
Wassily Kandinsky
John Kricfalusi is very talented; he used to really piss me off. But I did good work, you know? The Ren & Stimpy show without me was totally unsuccessful. So if there’s anybody listening out there with any doubts about what I can do for a show: Try me. The thing is, I wasn’t about to stop doing a job.
Billy West
Vision motivates, sustains and dispels doubt.
Thomas Young
But what of black women?… I most sincerely doubt if any other race of women could have brought its fineness up through so devilish a fire.
W. E. B. Du Bois
The victory of Hamas is not only based on the corruption of the Palestinian Authority. Hamas has a vision and a program, and this is the reason why the Palestinian people chose Hamas. However, there is no doubt that the corruption helped Hamas’s victory.
Ismail Haniyeh
There’s no doubt ‘normal’ is changing – spring actually came a month early in Alaska, for example, and we had to stop filming.
Travis Rice
I believe without any doubt that you are the finest generation this Church has ever had.
Gordon B. Hinckley
I doubt sometimes whether a quiet and unagitated life would have suited me – yet I sometimes long for it.
Lord Byron
What are the moral convictions most fondly held by barbarous and semi-barbarous people? They are the convictions that authority is the soundest basis of belief; that merit attaches to readiness to believe; that the doubting disposition is a bad one, and skepticism is a sin.
Thomas Huxley
There’s no doubt in my mind over the next 25 years how we drive, how we build our houses, how we fly, how we build our buildings, will all change.
Vinod Khosla
To doubt is worse than to have lost; and to despair is but to antedate those miseries that must fall on us.
Philip Massinger
It gives a man character as a poet to have a daily contact with a job. I doubt whether I’ve lost a thing by leading an exceedingly regular and disciplined life.
Wallace Stevens
You can have a perfectly horrible day where you doubt your talent… Or that you’re boring and they’re going to find out that you don’t know what you’re doing.
Meryl Streep
We support the auto-enrolment but we have our doubts about the way the National Pension Scheme is going to be structured.
George Osborne
…there is no doubt something will be done sooner or later to enable us to put on a house every day, just as we put on clothes or choose a book to read or a theater to go to, like choosing a day to be lived, within the limits grated by other destinies or chances.
Ettore Sottsass
I know the American administration is trying to refurbish its image after Irangate, especially in the Middle East and among their friends in this area. No doubt about it. We are following it.
Yasser Arafat
I leave you, hoping that the lamp of liberty will burn in your bosoms until there shall no longer be a doubt that all mean are created free and equal.
Seth Grahame-Smith
Two rules: 1. Preserve the principal 2. When in doubt, see Rule #1.

Behdad Sami
I have doubts! I have such doubts!
John Patrick Shanley
If our music survives, which I have no doubt it will, then it will because it is good.
Jerry Goldsmith
The experience of the past lives little doubt that every economic system must sooner or later rely upon some form of the profit motive to stir individuals and groups to productivity. Substitutes like slavery, police supervision, or ideological enthusiasm prove too unproductive, too expensive, or too transient.
Will Durant
I lost a lot of territory I really enjoyed having, but there was no doubt I had to do it to help Democrats.
Albert Wynn
There is no doubt that some in Iran have an unhealthy focus on Bahrain, as some of the broadcast coverage shows.
Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa
I believe everyday your life speaks to you – through every experience, through the people you meet, and even through pain, fear and self-doubt.
Oprah Winfrey
Your father, Jo. He never loses patience, never doubts or complains, but always hopes, and works and waits so cheerfully that one is ashamed to do otherwise before him.
Louisa May Alcott
I doubt that Fidel will ever come back to power. I think he is slowly going to the great beyond. Too slowly . . . he could have gone a long time ago.
Gloria Estefan
When I paint, I liberate monsters They are the manifestations of all the doubts, searches and groping for meaning and expression which all artists experience One does not choose the content, one submits to it.
Pierre Alechinsky
I have asked myself once or twice lately what was my natural bent. I have no doubt at all: It is to look at each day for the evil of that day and have a go at it, and that is why I have never failed to have an acute interest in each morning’s letters.
Geoffrey Fisher
This is the hard part about having best friends that I feel no attachment to — I don’t give them any benefit of the doubt. And being best friends is always about the benefit of the doubt.
David Levithan
When you doubt between words, use the plainest, the commonest, the most idiomatic. Eschew fine words as you would rouge; love simple ones as you would the native roses on your cheek.
Johann Kaspar Lavater
As a writer, you live in permanent self-doubt; youre on permanent trial.
Antonio Munoz Molina
Only the most deluded of us could doubt the necessity of this war.
John McCain
There is no doubt that Formula 1 has the best risk management of any sport and any industry in the world.
Jackie Stewart
There is no doubt that parts of the world are getting warmer, but the warming is not global.
Freeman Dyson
Some day, I suppose it’s possible for someone to be a better No Limit Hold’em player than me. I doubt it, but it could happen. But, I swear to you, I don’t see how anyone could ever play gin better than me.
Stu Ungar
I like expectations, with expectations, you have people coming at you from a place of doubt.
Jerry Ferrara
The death then of a beautiful woman is unquestionably the most poetical topic in the world, and equally is it beyond doubt that the lips best suited for such topic are those of a bereaved lover.
Edgar Allan Poe
When in doubt, do it.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
There’s no doubt in the world that directing makes you a better actor. Me, anyway. There’s no doubt in the world that it makes me a more collaborative actor.
Campbell Scott
Young children are unlikely to have their self-esteem strengthened from excessive praise or flattery. On the contrary, it may raise some doubts in children; many children can see through flattery and may even dismiss an adult who heaps on praise as a poor source of support-one who is not very believable.
Lilian Katz
Good that you ask. You should always ask, always have doubts.
Hermann Hesse
I’d like to study the drawings of kids. That’s where the truth is, without a doubt.
Andre Derain
First doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith.В We must never allow doubt to hold us prisoner and keep us from the divine love, peace, and gifts that come through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
No,” I say firmly. “If you ever doubt anything here, if you ever not know what to think or who to trust, you trust Todd, okay? You remember that.
Patrick Ness
The greatest obstacle to being heroic is the doubt whether one may not be going to prove one’s self a fool; the truest heroism is to resist the doubt; and the profoundest wisdom, to know when it ought to be resisted, and when it be obeyed.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
Those who believe they believe in God, but without passion in the heart, without anguish of mind, without uncertainty, without doubt, and even at times without despair, believe only in the idea of God, and not in God himself.
Madeleine L’Engle
The belief in a certain idea gives to the researcher the support for his work. Without this belief he would be lost in a sea of doubts and insufficiently verified proofs.
Konrad Zuse
If in doubt, move decisions up to the President.
Donald Rumsfeld
When you are not meditating, eliminate hate, doubt, fear, anxiety, negative thoughts and emotions that limit your consciousness, that bind you to a sense of self, of ego.
Frederick Lenz
There is no doubt that God will never be wanting to us, provided that He finds in us that humility which makes us worthy of His gifts, the desire of possessing them, and the promptitude to co-operate industriously with the graces He gives us.
Ignatius of Loyola
The modern materialists are not permitted to doubt; they are forbidden to believe.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Heels are a must. The higher the better. And when in doubt, go with black.
Leigh Lezark
excessive fear and self-doubt that were the greatest detractors of personal genius.
Robert Kiyosaki
And I have no doubt that the American people generally believe the world is safer, and that we are safer, when we are stronger
Jeane Kirkpatrick
Reports the CIA has concluded that Russian hacking of Democratic emails was aimed at helping Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton, a step beyond the intelligence community’s earlier finding that Russia was simply trying to cast doubt on the integrity of our elections.
Donald Trump
I don’t doubt at all that virtualization is useful in some areas. What I doubt rather strongly is that it will ever have the kind of impact that the people involved in virtualization want it to have.
Linus Torvalds
If you don’t encounter setbacks in your career, if you don’t have doubts and disappointments , let me tell you, you’re not dreaming big enough.
Michael Bloomberg
Ultimately, the forces of dictatorship and extremism robbed me of my mother, but she lives on as a symbol of hope, a role model for women across the world. She proved beyond a doubt, with her life and relentless courage, that women can certainly do everything.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari
In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don’t.
Blaise Pascal
I started having doubts right on top of my certainty.
David James Duncan
Doubt is not the opposite of faith; it is one element of faith.
Paul Tillich
There is no doubt that Republican control of the Senate is the only way to preserve the Constitutional integrity of our Supreme Court, realign our military’s force structure, and ensure the basic freedoms and liberties that make ours the greatest country in the world.
Todd Wilcox
There is no doubt that every healthy, normal boy…should own a dog at some time in his life, preferably between the ages of forty-five and fifty.
Robert Benchley
No doubt it is true that science cannot study God, but it hardly follows that God had to keep a safe distance from everything that scientists want to study.
Phillip E. Johnson
Philosophy when superficially studied, excites doubt, when thoroughly explored, it dispels it.
Francis Bacon
Lee Chong Wei is no doubt the best men’s singles opponent I’ve played, and this gives me extra motivation to raise my game each time I play against him.
Lin Dan
There is no doubt in my mind that Masonry is the cornerstone of America.
Dave Thomas
We should exhibit no self doubt to our friends, … Credibility is a strategic asset.
John McCain
It has, moreover, been proven that horror, nastiness, and the frightful are what give pleasure when one fornicates. Beauty is a simple thing; ugliness is the exceptional thing. And fiery imaginations, no doubt, always prefer the extraordinary thing to the simple thing.
Marquis de Sade
There was no doubt about it: if you wanted to succeed you had to go away. You could do nothing in Dublin.
James Joyce
We must, then, apply the principle of Doubt to Civilization; we must doubt its necessity, its excellence, and its permanence.
Charles Fourier
Whenever you’re unsure of yourself, whenever you’re in doubt, ask yourself three questions. What do you believe in? What do you hope for? but most important, ask yourself, what do you love?
Paullina Simons
Don’t waste life in doubts and fears; spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour’s duties will be the best preparation for the hours and ages that will follow it.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I doubt that art needed Ruskin any more than a moving train needs one of its passengers to shove it.
Tom Stoppard
If there were no falsehood in the world, there would be no doubt, if there were no doubt, there would be no inquiry; if no inquiry, no wisdom, no knowledge, no genius; and Fancy herself would lie muffled up in her robe, inactive, pale, and bloated.
Walter Savage Landor
We attended stables, as we attended church, in our best clothes, thereby no doubt showing the degree of respect due to horses.
Osbert Sitwell
I doubt you’ve ever been forced to nonstop bang a woman hyped up on the undead voodoo version of Spanish fly, have you?” His chuckle was soft. “Can’t say that I have, Kitten.” “Yeah, well, consider me an original.” This time, when his lips brushed across my skin, it lasted more than a moment. “I always have.
Jeaniene Frost
Without a doubt, rowing is the hardest thing you can attempt to learn in a short period of time.
Eric Bana
Nowadays a lot of what was wrong with me would no doubt be ascribed to Attention Deficit Disorder, tartrazine food colouring, dairy produce and air pollution. A few hundred years earlier it would have been demons, still the best analogy I think, but not much help when it comes to a cure.
Stephen Fry
Doubt is the offspring of knowledge: the savage never doubts at all.
William Winwood Reade
I know it when I don’t know it. Sometimes I know it when I don’t think I know it. I need to trust myself in these moments, these rare moments of self-doubt.
Rush Limbaugh
As scientists the two men were contrasting types—Einstein all calculation, Rutherford all experiment … There was no doubt that as an experimenter Rutherford was a genius, one of the greatest. He worked by intuition and everything he touched turned to gold. He had a sixth sense.
Chaim Weizmann
In bygone days, commanders were taught that when in doubt, they should march their troops towards the sound of gunfire. I intend to march my troops towards the sound of gunfire.
Jo Grimond
Would the Iraq War have occurred without WMD? I doubt it.
Karl Rove
When a scientist doesn’t know the answer to a problem, he is ignorant. When he has a hunch as to what the result is, he is uncertain. And when he is pretty darn sure of what the result is going to be, he is in some doubt.
Richard P. Feynman
Nothing really worth having comes quickly and easily. If it did, I doubt that we would ever grow.
Eknath Easwaran
What if I told you that 10 years from now, your life would be exactly the same? I doubt you would be happy. So, why are you so afraid of change?
Karen Salmansohn
The collection of taxes which are not absolutely required, which do not beyond reasonable doubt contribute to public welfare, is only a species of legalized larceny. Under this Republic the rewards of industry belong to those who earn them.
Calvin Coolidge
Doubt everything. Find your own light.
Gautama Buddha
You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt, as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear.
Paul H. Dunn
It’s one of the few regrets of my presidency – that the rancor and suspicion between the parties has gotten worse instead of better. There’s no doubt a president with the gifts of Lincoln or Roosevelt might have better bridged the divide, and I guarantee I’ll keep trying to be better so long as I hold this office.
Barack Obama
I say only that this man [Donald Trump] is not Christian if he has said things like that [about wall]. We must see if he said things in that way and in this I give the benefit of the doubt.
Pope Francis
Honor your parents by not judging them. Give them the benefit of doubt.
Michael Jackson
I cannot doubt that women will line up, like the men elected, with the groups whose political thinking and convictions are in accord with their own political convictions.
Edith Rogers
The brain upon which my experiences have been written is not a particularly good one. If their were brain-shows, as there are cat and dog shows, I doubt if it would get even a third class prize.
H. G. Wells
People sometimes tell me that they prefer barbarism to civilisation. I doubt if they have given it a long enough trial. Like the people of Alexandria, they are bored by civilisation; but all the evidence suggests that the boredom of barbarism is infinitely greater.
Kenneth Clark
Trust only him who doubts.
Lu Xun
I didn’t have any doubts about my choice of career, but I had constant doubts about my ability, yes.
Suzanne Farrell
Where God has put a period, the devil puts a question mark, casting doubt.
Steven J Lawson
I think Pep Guardiola is a top manager. There’s no doubt about that. Not only did he manage Messi and Iniesta, but he made them better and took them to levels they’d never been before. The best team I’ve ever seen is Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona. I’m sure his management got something to do with that.
Jamie Carragher
I’m always doubting my work, even when people are kind enough to say good things. I still have a hard time believing I’ve written some books, let alone that they’ve actually done pretty well.
Donald Ray Pollock
Being a father has been, without a doubt, my greatest source of achievement, pride and inspiration. Fatherhood has taught me about unconditional love, reinforced the importance of giving back and taught me how to be a better person.
Naveen Jain
Without a doubt, because now in the music business talent and hard work isn’t enough. There is just a lot of luck and marketing money involved in making any artist break. “Fall Down” is about a relationship, but you could certainly apply it to the relationship we’ve had with each other and throughout our career.
Jason C. Miller
What counts is results, and there can be no doubt that the Soviet planning system has been a powerful engine for economic growth…The Soviet model has surely demonstrated that a command economy is capable of mobilizing resources for rapid growth.
Paul Samuelson
For sure Tupac [Shakur]. Without a doubt. I have to have Pac at the party doing it!
Nate Burleson
There are infinitely many variations of the initial situation and therefore no doubt indefinitely many theorems of moral geometry.
John Rawls
No one doubts that Donald Trump is willing to walk away from a deal if it’s a bad one. No one doubts that he’s willing to punish our enemies if they transgress U.S. interests, whereas, with Hillary Clinton, she is very predictable.
Kris Kobach
There was no doubt that sooner or later we will fight. But we will fight not in the way of the dissidents’ protests. We understood that we needed to be as professional as possible.
Anatoly Chubais
Religion is a culture of faith; science is a culture of doubt.
Richard P. Feynman
I read these words which are the sum of all moral philosophy, and which cut short all the disputes of the casuists: When in doubt if an action is good or bad, refrain.
There is no doubt that someone who tries to throw a curve or pitch at any early age before he’s developed, before his hand is big enough to grip the ball correctly, will damage his arm.
Robin Roberts
One does not imagine the presence of a dog in the Garden of Eden, for had there been, no doubt he would have given adequate protection to his mistress and saved her descendants from all subsequent trouble.
Kate Sanborn
grateful people are a bore and become obsequious, which causes their benefactors to doubt the wisdom of their choice.
Silvia Tennenbaum
Perhaps I’ll get used to this bizarre place called Hollywood, but I doubt it.
Margaret Sullavan
I have not that joy in the Holy Ghost, no settled, lasting joy; nor have I such a peace as excludes the possibility either of fear or doubt.
John Wesley
The bereaved had never any doubt about their dear ones’ wishes and those wishes usually squared with their own inclinations.
Agatha Christie
The presidency is a serious job that requires sound judgment and good ideas, and there’s no doubt in my mind that Jeb Bush has the experience and the character to be a great president.
George W. Bush
If the Sunday had not been observed as a day of rest during the last three centuries, I have not the slightest doubt that we should have been at this moment a poorer people and less civilized.
Thomas B. Macaulay
There may or may not be atheists in foxholes, but I’m certain there are none in the Ku Klux Klan.
George Carlin
In the minds of most men, the kingdom of opinion is divided into three territories,–the territory of yes, the territory of no, and a broad, unexplored middle ground of doubt.
James A. Garfield
God, how I ricochet between certainties and doubts.
Sylvia Plath
To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation.
Yann Martel
Original sin is not only the violation of a positive command … but … attempts … to abolish fatherhood, destroying its rays which permeate the created world, placing in doubt the truth about God who is Love and leaving man with only a sense of the master-slave relationship.
Pope John Paul II
Donald Trump’s a bigot without a shadow of a doubt.
Cenk Uygur
I’ve never wanted to be called an artist. The term itself seems old-fashioned. It’s a term that does not relate to modern times. And it’s too confining. What I love about fashion is its accessibility and its democracy. Everyone wears it, and everyone relates to it.
Miuccia Prada
La duda es uno de los nombres de la inteligencia.
Jorge Luis Borges
No doubt, some people are quantitatively less busy than others and some much more so, but that doesn’t change the shared experience: most everyone I know feels frazzled and overwhelmed most of the time.
Kevin DeYoung
The most successful supporters of tyranny are without doubt those general declaimers who attribute the distresses of the poor, and almost all evils to which society is subject, to human institutions and the iniquity of governments.
Thomas Malthus
Indeed I cannot doubt that there has been really one grand empire, or one Universal, one Pandæan, or one Catholic religion, with one language, which has extended over the whole of the world; uniting or governing at the same time.
Godfrey Higgins
We have lots of challenges around the world, and I have no doubt the intelligence community will continue to watch them, monitor them, and report on them. The issue is, with all of our other distractions here in Washington, particularly, will the appropriate attention be paid to each one of these issues?
James R. Clapper
If anybody doubts my loyalty to my country, I’ll punch him in the nose, and I don’t care how old he is.
William Wyler
I make a project and I panic. Which is good, it can be a method. First, panic. Second, conquer panic by working. Third, find ways to solve your doubts.
Eduardo Souto de Moura
Gold and silver are no doubt subject to fluctuations, from the discovery of new and more abundant mines; but such discoveries are rare, and their effects, though powerful, are limited to periods of comparatively short duration.
David Ricardo
Feed your faith and your doubts will starve to death.
Debbie Macomber
My colleague Ross Douthat wrote that any time you give Donald Trump the benefit of the doubt, he always lets you down.
David Brooks
I give everyone the benefit of the doubt.
Claudia Christian
Self-doubt is the greatest enemy of any new good habit.
Victoria Moran
There’s no doubt about it, show business lures the people who didn’t get enough love, attention, or approval early in life and have grown up to become bottomless, gaping vessels of terrifying, abject need. Please laugh.
Dennis Miller
When I was in high school, there’s no doubt I was trying to swing like Tiger Woods when he first came on tour.
Adam Derek Scott
The fact that so little of the findings of modern science is prefigured in Scripture to my mind casts further doubt on it divine inspiration.
Carl Sagan
One way to know you are REALLY on track is when people begin to doubt or “hate on” what you are doing. It’s a natural part of the process.
Mastin Kipp
The expedition had now performed its functions. I saw that old father Nile without any doubt rises in the Victoria Nyanza, and as I had foretold, that lake is the great source of the holy river which cradled the first expounder of our religious belief.
John Hanning Speke
Create delusion. Establish doubt. Feed paranoia.
John Katzenbach
It may be appropriate to quote a statement of Poincare, who said (partly in jest no doubt) that there must be something mysterious about the normal law since mathematicians think it is a law of nature whereas physicists are convinced that it is a mathematical theorem.
Henri Poincare
Fear not little flock; do good; let earth and hell combine against you, for if ye are built upon my rock, they cannot prevail. . .Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not.
Dallin H. Oaks
There is no doubt that we live in an age of unprecedented, and sometimes terrifying, technological advance where the speed of advance so often outstrips the necessary ethical considerations.
Prince Charles
I had no reason to doubt that brains were suitable for a woman.
Margaret Mead
…the secret to joy is to keep seeking God where we doubt He is.
Ann Voskamp
A Sceptick therefore, who because he finds that Truths are not universally received, doubts of their existence, is just as foolish as a man who should try large shoes upon little feet, and little shoes upon large feet, and finding that they did not fit.
James Boswell
To acknowledge the receipt of letters is always proper, to remove doubts of their miscarriage.
George Washington
No doubt the Jews aren’t a lovable people; I don’t care about them myself; but that is not sufficient to explain the Pogrom.
Neville Chamberlain
Gravity is not a version of the truth. It is the truth. Anyone who doubts it is invited to jump out a tenth-storey window.
Richard Dawkins
There’s no doubt that cable news hosts can say things that the president of the United States shouldn’t say, and people can be harsh at you. That doesn’t mean you benefit by being harsh back.
Roy Blunt
The reason why Matthew Arnold, to my feeling, fails entirely as a poet (though no doubt his ideas were good – at least, I am told they were) is that he had no sense of touch whatsoever. Nothing made any impression on his skin. He could feel neither the shape nor the texture of a poem with his hands.
Edith Sitwell
The best part about being my age is in knowing how my life worked out. Sure, there’s a lot more living to go, but there isn’t much doubt that I’ll always be the ‘Dilbert guy.’ Unless I go on a crime spree, in which case I’ll be that stabbin Dilbert guy.
Scott Adams
I was always fascinated with the idea that an imaginary friend was the perfect friend that a child created, and I wanted to play with the idea of a role reversal where the imaginary friend is waiting to find that perfect someone but has doubts about whether that day would ever come.
Dan Santat
Slowly, but with no doubt or hesitation whatever, and in something of a solemn expectancy, the two animals passed through the broken tumultuous water and moored their boat at the flowery margin of the island.
Kenneth Grahame
Hypocrite women, how seldom we speak
of our own doubts, while dubiously
we mother man in his doubt!
Denise Levertov
Nobody should ever doubt that in the washing of rebirth (Titus 3:5) absolutely all sins, from the least to the greatest, are altogether forgiven.
Saint Augustine
The poverty of our imagination is no measure of say the world’s resources. Our posterity will no doubt get fuel in ways that we are unable to devise for them.
George Eliot
Cross-examination is beyond any doubt the greatest legal engine ever invented for the discovery of truth. … Cross-examination, not trial by jury, is the great and permanent contribution of the Anglo-American system of law to improved methods of trial-procedure.
John Henry Wigmore
The suspicious mind believes more than it doubts. It believes in a formidable and ineradicable evil lurking in every person.
Eric Hoffer
Without doubt half the ethical rules they din into our ears are designed to keep us at work.
Llewelyn Powys
There can be no doubt that smoking nowadays is largely a miserable automatic business. People use tobacco without ever taking an intelligent interest in it. They do not experiment, compare, fit the tobacco to the occasion. A man should always be pleasantly conscious of the fact that he is smoking.
J. B. Priestley
Talk faith. The world is better off without, Your uttered ignorance and morbid doubt.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
We all have tremendous potential, and we all are blessed with gifts. Yet, the one thing that holds all of us back is some degree of self-doubt. It is not so much the lack of technical information that holds us back, but more the lack of self-confidence.
Robert Kiyosaki
What is clear to one man may be doubtful to another.
Lloyd Kenyon, 1st Baron Kenyon
Every job I take, within minutes I’m thinking, ‘I can’t do this.’ I think it’s what makes me work. People think I just swagger in and do it. But I doubt myself all the time. It’s what pushes me, what makes me work harder. The older I get, the less I take for granted.
Ray Winstone
Most people have this protective view of the presidency. Anybody who holds the office is always gonna get the benefit of the doubt unless the media spends four years destroying them like they did Bush, and with Bush not returning fire.
Rush Limbaugh
No one talks more passionately about his rights than he who in the depths of his soul doubts whether he has any. By enlisting passion on his side he wants to stifle his reason and its doubts: thus he will acquire a good conscience and with it success among his fellow men.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Relief is a short-lived emotion, passive and thin. The agony of doubt disappears, leaving little memory of how it really felt. Life aligns behind the new truth.
Ann Brashares
I have my moments. Ever since I was a boy, I never was someone who was at ease with happiness. Too often I embrace introspection and self-doubt. I wish I could embrace the good things.
Hugh Laurie
Without any doubt at all, teacher quality is the fundamental differentiator. Not just, incidentally, of education, but I would argue, probably the biggest single differentiator of success for the nations of the 21st Century.
David Puttnam
When we love all parts of ourselves, when we bless all of ourselves, when we honor all of our history and all of our insecurities, doubts, worries, and fears, we become the women that we always wanted to be.
Debbie Ford
Ithink Isaid’All menare Jews excepttheydon’t know it.’I doubt I expected anyone to take the statement literally. But I think it’s an understandable statement and a metaphoric way of indicating how history, sooner or later, treats all men.
Bernard Malamud
Doubt, the essential preliminary of all improvement and discovery, must accompany the stages of man’s onward progress. The faculty of doubting and questioning, without which those of comparison and judgment would be useless, is itself a divine prerogative of the reason.
Albert Pike
I feel we’re on pretty solid ground in interpreting orbit around the sun as the primary driving force behind ice-age glaciation. The relationship is just too clear and consistent to allow reasonableВ doubt.
George Kukla
When the heart is flooded with love there is no room in it for fear, for doubt, for hesitation.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Always telling the truth is no doubt better than always lying, although equally pathological.
Robert Breault
Listen widely to remove your doubts and be careful when speaking about the rest and your mistakes will be few. See much and get rid of what is dangerous and be careful in acting on the rest and your causes for regret will be few. Speaking without fault, acting without causing regret: ‘upgrading’ consists in this.
The Holy Spirit is no skeptic. He has written neither doubt nor mere opinion into our hearts, but rather solid assurances, which are more sure and solid than all experience and even life itself.
Martin Luther
And, she was able to tell herself with some satisfaction, the man in question – one Colin Bridgerton – felt precisely the same way…. ….His earth shook, his heart leaped, and Penelope knew without a doubt that his breath was taken away as well. For a good ten seconds. Falling off a horse tended to do that to a man.
Julia Quinn
Whether deliberately, unconsciously or accidentally, she seems to have composed her own life so that its fitful, rudderless, and self-doubting first half was alchemized into gold when the austere bluestocking became the fallen woman.
Carolyn Heilbrun
A man writes because he is tormented, because he doubts. He needs to constantly prove to himself and the others that he’s worth something. And if I know for sure that I’m a genius? Why write then? What the hell for?
Andrei Tarkovsky
While we all could agree that the Zionist ideal is alive and well, there is serious doubt whether the Zionist movement can be said to be an ongoing proposition, fragmented as its components are in ideology and in practice.
Theodore Bikel
Doubt, skepticism, innovation, and inquiry are the only means by which wonder, beauty, awe, and symmetry will be discovered.
Christopher Hitchens
Aschenbach is not only a projection of Mann in the obvious ways – same daily routines, author of the works Mann had planned – nor even in sharing his author’s aspirations, doubts, and sexual identity. His watchword, “Durchhalten!” [persevere, keep going] could be Mann’s own.
Philip Kitcher
And, like a fool, she kissed him back. Kissed him a way that would leave no doubt about the way she felt about him. Kissed him because she knew the chances were slim she’d have very many kisses like that in her lifetime. Which is a sad thing when you’re only seventeen.
Cinda Williams Chima
There is no doubt the NATO-Russia Act should remain valid.
Angela Merkel
In our relationships we need to uphold that aspect of the person which is the real person and the soul beyond their own self-doubt.
Vilayat Inayat Khan
I had self-doubt about whether my story was interesting to people. I didn’t want to write something that was anecdotal. It was important to me that people would get something out of my book. I want people to read it and say, “Now I don’t feel so alone,” or “I’m going to remember that next time I’m being an asshole.”
Lizz Winstead
A man must be a born fool who voluntarily engages in controversy with Mr. Adams on a question of fact. I doubt whether he was ever mistaken in his life.
Henry Clay
Hoodies are definitely street wear, no doubt. It’s amazing how hoodies have become such an important staple in people’s wardrobes.
Ian Astbury
Worry, doubt, fear and despair are the enemies which slowly bring us down to the ground and turn us to dust before we die.
Douglas MacArthur
I’ve never seen anyone handling pans in the streets of New York, and if I did I doubt I’d give them money, unless I needed a pan. I do give money to homeless people, whether they ask or no.
Hamish Linklater
Doubt begins only at the last frontiers of what is possible.
Ambrose Bierce
I’m sure Obama is an atheist; I’m sure Kennedy was an atheist, but I doubt if Pope Frank is.
Richard Dawkins
I testify that our teacher, our shepherd, is Christ, our best friend, who clears up all our doubts. He heals our wounds and turns our pain into sweet experiences.
Horacio A. Tenorio
I do not believe in the God of theology who rewards good and punishes evil.
Albert Einstein
Because no matter what happened, I had the peace of mind of knowing that all of the chatter, the name-calling, the doubting — all of it was just noise. It did not define me. It didn’t change who I was. And most importantly, it couldn’t hold me back.
Michelle Obama
Man, I’m sick of doubt.
Jim Morrison
No doubt very few people understand the purely subjective nature of the phenomenon that we call love, or how it creates, so to speak, a supplementary person, distinct from the person whom the world knows by the same name, a person most of whose constituent elements are derived from ourselves.
Marcel Proust
We face a conflict between civilisation and culture, which used to be on the same side. Civilisation means rational reflection, material wellbeing, individual autonomy and ironic self-doubt; culture means a form of life that is customary, collective, passionate, spontaneous, unreflective and arational.
Terry Eagleton
All of God’s creatures have names, every last one of them. Of that I am sure: of that I have no doubt at all.
Kate DiCamillo
When in doubt, blow something up.
J. Michael Straczynski
You should never doubt yourself because you never, ever know what’s around the corner.
Kellie Pickler
If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts, but if he will content to begin with doubts, he shall end in certainties.
Francis Bacon
Faith and doubt go hand in hand, they are complementaries. One who never doubts will never truly believe.
Hermann Hesse
I tend to like people that are generous and give other people the benefit of the doubt.
Tina Weymouth
Of all the inventions of man I doubt whether any was more easily accomplished than that of a Heaven.
Georg C. Lichtenberg
To dream is to starve doubt, feed hope.
Justina Chen
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
Margaret Mead
But many a crime deemed innocent on earth Is registered in Heaven; and these no doubt Have each their record, with a curse annex’d.
William Cowper
My wife is been extremely supportive and when doubt creeps in, she’s there pushing me along. She’s helped me move up here, get all of my furniture and brought all my groceries. That’s what marriage is about: supporting each other and helping each other reach our fullest potential.
Eddie George
There can be no doubt that these attacks are deliberate acts of terrorism, carefully planned and coordinated and as such I condemn them utterly. Terrorism must be fought resolutely wherever it appears.
Kofi Annan
Servile doubt argues an impotence of mind, that says we fear because we dare not meet misfortunes.
Aaron Hill

Are you paralyzed with fear? That’s a good sign. Fear is good. Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator. Fear tells us what we have to do. Remember one rule of thumb: the more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it.
Steven Pressfield
