doubt

A Quote by William James on belief, doubt, faith, prosperity, and readiness

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.

A Quote by Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. on attitude, discrimination, doubt, history, nations, practicality, romance, sex, and women

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.

A Quote by Dr. William Ralph Inge, KC, VO, FBA, DD on animals, creation, devil, doubt, religion, and rest

We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form.

A Quote by Webb B. Garrison on belief, doubt, faith, immortality, life, meaning, and understanding

Faith is positive, enriching life in the here and now. Doubt is negative, robbing life of glow and meaning. So though I do not understand immortality, I choose to believe.

A Quote by W. E. B. Du Bois on doubt and women

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.

A Quote by unknown on body, doubt, good, happiness, heart, mind, needs, opportunity, satisfaction, and time

Happiness is possible only when one is busy. The body must toil, the mind must be occupied, and the heart must be satisfied. Those who do good as opportunity offers are sowing seed all the time, and they need not doubt the harvest.

A Quote by unknown on doubt, guidance, justice, learning, life, mind, and nature

Each billow that comes rolling on to toss us on its crest, Is nature's way to teach us how to do our level best. If we learn each trial's lesson, 'tis an aid our lives to guide, If we pass it by unheeded, we're just drifting with the tide. So when trials and tribulations come to fill your mind with doubt, They're to teach some needed lesson you could never learn without.

A Quote by unknown on change, doubt, dreams, failure, future, good, justice, kiss, life, praise, strength, success, time, words, and work

I use to have a "Comfort Zone" Where I knew I couldn't fail, The same four walls and busy work, were really more like jail. I longed so much to do the things I'd never done before, But I stayed inside my "Comfort Zone" and paced the same old floor. I said it didn't matter that I wasn't doing much. I said I didn't care for things like diamonds, furs and such. I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the Zone. But deep inside I longed for something "special" of my own. I couldn't let my life go by just watching others win! I held my breath and stepped outside to let the change begin!! I took a step and with new strength I'd never felt before. I kissed my "Comfort Zone" good-bye and closed and locked the door! If you are in a "Comfort Zone" afraid to venture out. Remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt. A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true. Greet your future with a smile, Success is there for you!!!
