Doubt

Doubt, a status between belief and disbelief, involves uncertainty or distrust or lack of sureness of an alleged fact, an action, a motive, or a decision. Doubt brings into question some notion of a perceived "reality", and may involve delaying or rejecting relevant action out of concerns for mistakes or faults or appropriateness. Some definitions of doubt emphasize the state in which the mind remains suspended between two contradictory propositions and unable to assent to either of them (compare paradox).

The concept of doubt covers a range of phenomena: one can characterise both deliberate questioning of uncertainties and an emotional state of indecision as "doubt".

Famous quotes containing the word doubt:

    To walk through the ruined cities of Germany is to feel an actual doubt about the continuity of civilization.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)

    No doubt it’s a blessed thing to have an imagination that can always make you satisfied, no matter how you are fixed.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Do you call it doubting to write down on a piece of paper that you doubt? If so, doubt has nothing to do with any serious business. But do not make believe; if pedantry has not eaten all the reality out of you, recognize, as you must, that there is much that you do not doubt, in the least. Now that which you do not at all doubt, you must and do regard as infallible, absolute truth.
    Charles Sanders Peirce (1839–1914)
