Doubt can only be removed by action.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Doubt, of whatever kind, can be ended by action alone.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak up and remove all doubt.
It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.
Some people say it is better to appear foolish than open your mouth and remove all doubt. I say if it is already thought then you have nothing to lose.
Life is too precious to be spent in this weaving and unweaving of false impressions, and it is better to live quietly under some degree of misrepresentation than to attempt to remove it by the uncertain process of letter-writing.
How frail and ephemeral is the material substance of letters, which makes their very survival so hazardous. Print has a permanence of its own, though it may not be much worth preserving, but a letter! Conveyed by uncertain transportation, over which the sender has no control; committed to a single individual who may be careless or inappreciative; left to the mercy of future generations, of families maybe anxious to suppress the past, of the accidents of removals and house-cleanings, or of mere ignorance. How often it has been by the veriest chance that they have survived at all.
In a man's letters you know, Madam, his soul lies naked, his letters are only the mirror of his breast, whatever passes within him is shown undisguised in its natural process. Nothing is inverted, nothing distorted, you see systems in their elements, you discover actions in their motives.
Skepticism means, not intellectual doubt alone, but moral doubt.
