Famous quotes containing the word doubtful:

    A doubtful choice, of these three which to crave,
    A kingdom, or a cottage, or a grave.
    Edward De Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford (1550–1604)

    It is one thing to live, another to philosophize. When therefore the question is about the conduct of our lives, and the performance of our duty, we cease to be philosophers, to be opponents, doubtful or uncertain; and become poor, simple credulous idiots; we call things by their names, and re-assume our understanding and manners; we conform our manners to those of other men, and to their laws and customs.
    Pierre-Daniel Huet (1630–1721)

    In doubtful cases the more liberal interpretation must always be preferred.
    Marcus Tullius Cicero (106–43 B.C.)
