|"When you have eliminated the impossible,
whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."
- Sherlock Holmes,
in The Sign of Four, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
"Why sometimes I've believed as many as
six impossible things before breakfast."
- The Red Queen,
in Through the Looking Glass, by Lewis Carroll
|Cherish your doubts, for doubt is the attendant of truth.
Doubt is the key to the door of knowledge; it is the servant of discovery.
A belief which may not be questioned binds us to error,
for there is incompleteness, and imperfection in every belief.
Doubt is the touchstone of truth; it is an acid which eats away the false.
Let no one fear for the truth, that doubt may consume it;
For doubt is a testing of belief.
The truth stands boldly and unafraid; it is not shaken by the testing:
For truth, if it be truth, arises from each testing stronger, more secure.
Those that would silence doubt are filled with fear;
Their houses are built on shifting sands.
But those who fear not doubt, and know its use, are founded on rock.
They shall walk in the light of growing knowledge;
The work of their hands shall endure.
Therefore let us not fear doubt, but let us rejoice in its help:
It is to the wise as a staff to the blind; doubt is the attendant of truth.
- Robert T. Weston
