Scepticism


Hands untrained in the use of tools destroy what they want to build. It takes skill to use tools to achieve the result desired, whether its tearing down an old house or building a new one. Skepticism is a tool serving both purposes. But it must be used by a trained mind, a mind capable of disciplined thinking. - J. B. Charles

I am too much of a skeptic to deny the possibility of anything. - Thomas H. Huxley

Large scepticism leads to large understanding. Small scepticism leads to small understanding. No scepticism leads to no understanding. - Xi Zhi

Scepticism is the chastity of the intellect, and it is shameful to surrender it too soon. - George Santayana
