Top Doubters Quotes

Doubters Quotes By Tim Rice

I recently declined to support a Conservative function because I'm so incensed about these wind turbines. Like all so-called climate-change doubters, I am very pro the environment, but I strongly believe that it is something that can only be cured locally. Some insane overall scheme isn't going to cure all the problems. — Tim Rice

Doubters Quotes By Sinclair Lewis

Blessed be they who are not Patriots and Idealists, and who do not feel they must dash right in and Do Something About It, something so immediately important that all doubters must be liquidated - tortured - slaughtered! Good old murder, that since the slaying of Abel by Cain has always been the new device by which all oligarchies and dictators have, for all future ages to come, removed opposition! — Sinclair Lewis

Doubters Quotes By Max Lucado

God's greatest blessings often come costumed as disasters. Any doubters need to do nothing more than ascend the hill of Calvary. — Max Lucado

The melancholy have the best sense of the comic, the opulent often the best sense of the rustic, the dissolute often the best sense of the moral, and the doubter often the best sense of the religious. — Soren Kierkegaard

Doubters Quotes By Gary McCord

If you are going to make a change, don't go halfway. Make it with conviction and stick with your new idea. Ignore the scoffers. Remember, it is a law of nature that if something is different you're going to be taunted, jeered, and told the world is flat. Let the doubters fall off the edge. — Gary McCord

Doubters Quotes By Zoe Sugg

For the doubters out there, of course I was going to have help from Penguin's editorial team in telling my story, which I talked about from the beginning. — Zoe Sugg

Doubters Quotes By Frank D. Kennedy

Hannah Arendt, a 20th century Jewish philosopher and Holocaust survivor, writes about the necessity of skepticism and doubt in the face of totalitarianism. Germany after World War I was a country in crisis, and in any time of national crisis, when people seek the reassurance of strong leaders who appear to have all the answers, doubters and skeptics tend to be treated as disloyal and dangerous. But it was the unthinking, unquestioning belief of Hitler's followers that made him powerful; the ruthlessness with which the Nazis suppressed dissent only solidified his control. — Frank D. Kennedy

Doubters Quotes By Carl Henegan

When you can't understand the negativity, doubt, or lack of support directed at you just remember this. They are not looking at you ... they are looking in the mirror. After that the true clarity of their self-doubt will emerge. — Carl Henegan

Doubters Quotes By Leslie Marmon Silko

Doubters Quotes By Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

doubters only doubt what they doubt — Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Doubters Quotes By Vidal Sassoon

When the doubters tell you it can't be done and all kind of tragedies will come your way, I say nonsense. If you can get to the very root of who you are and make something happen from it, my sense tells me you are going to surprise yourself. — Vidal Sassoon

Doubters Quotes By Brenda Ueland

Work freely and rollickingly as though you were talking to a friend who loves you. Mentally (at least three or four times a day) thumb your nose at all know-it-alls, jeerers, critics, doubters. — Brenda Ueland

Doubters Quotes By Derrick Rose

I can't wait to shock the doubters and prove I'm better and stronger than I was before. — Derrick Rose

Doubters Quotes By Orlando Figes

Convinced that their own ideas were the key to the future of the world, that the fate of humanity rested on the outcome of their own doctrinal struggles, the Russian intelligentsia divided up the world into the forces of 'progress' and 'reaction', friends and enemies of the people's cause, leaving no room for doubters in between. Here were the origins of the totalitarian world-view. Although neither would have liked to admit it, there was much in common between Lenin and Tolstoy. — Orlando Figes

Doubters Quotes By Michael Barbarulo

Never settle ... go after your dreams aggressively. Ignore the doubters, step over them. Stay focus on your prize. — Michael Barbarulo

Doubters Quotes By Rumi

It astonishes me how some people say, 'How do saints and lovers of God find love in the eternal world beyond form, space and time? How can they gain strength and help? How are they affected by things without body or shape?'
Is not all life, night and day, engaged with these very things? One person loves another person and derives help through that love. They find care and grace, kindness and knowledge, happiness and sorrow. All these belong to that formless world. Moment by moment they receive benefits from these abstractions and are affected by them. However, this doesn't surprise the doubters. Yet they are amazed that saints can find love in the invisible worlds, and derive help without form. — Rumi

Doubters Quotes By Jacob Nordby

Life loves to reveal herself to the raw, courageous doubters; to those who are willing to live inside the question. — Jacob Nordby

Doubters Quotes By Richard Hofstadter

Intellectualism, though by no means confined to doubters, is often the sole piety of the skeptic. — Richard Hofstadter

Doubters Quotes By Brian D. McLaren

As a committed Christian, I have always struggled with locked doors - doors by which we on the inside lock out "the others" - Jews, Muslims, Mormons, liberals, doubters, agnostics, gay folks, whomever. The more we insiders succeed in shutting others out, the more I tend to feel locked in, caged, trapped. — Brian D. McLaren

Doubters Quotes By Shaquille O'Neal

I really get motivated when I have doubters. — Shaquille O'Neal

Doubters Quotes By Veronica Rossi

Doubters don't mean a damn thing,' I tell him. 'I doubt it'll rain tomorrow, but that doesn't mean I control the rain. — Veronica Rossi

Doubters Quotes By Helmut Thielicke

The doubters are always more blessed than the mere fellow travelers in faith. For they are the only ones who fully learn that their Lord is stronger than any doubt and any hell of despair. — Helmut Thielicke

Doubters Quotes By Julia Cameron

In order to achieve escape velocity, we must learn to keep our own counsel, to move silently among doubters, to voice our plans only among our allies, and to name our allies accurately. — Julia Cameron

Doubters Quotes By Kid Ink

Don't be distracted by doubters. — Kid Ink

Doubters Quotes By Billy Childish

I liked drawing and painting, because the only failure would be to listen to the doubters who wanted me to stop drawing and painting because 'you aren't going to make a living doing that.' I liked looking in art books at the work of painters. — Billy Childish

Doubters Quotes By Jenny McCarthy

Parents of recovered children, and I've met hundreds, all share the same experience of doubters and deniers telling us our child must have never even had autism or that the recovery was simply nature's course. We all know better, and frankly we're too busy helping other parents to really care. — Jenny McCarthy

Doubters Quotes By Calvin Coolidge

It is hard to see how a great man can be an atheist. Without the sustaining influence of faith in a divine power we could have little faith in ourselves. We need to feel that behind us is intelligence and love. Doubters do not achieve; skeptics do not contribute; cynics do not create. Faith is the great motive power, and no man realizes his full possibilities unless he has the deep conviction that life is eternally important, and that his work, well done, is a part of an unending plan. — Calvin Coolidge

Doubters Quotes By Charlotte Bronte

Having thus acknowledged what I owe those who have aided and approved me, I turn to another class; a small one, so far as I know, but not, therefore, to be overlooked. I mean the timorous or carping few who doubt the tendency of such books as "Jane Eyre:" in whose eyes whatever is unusual is wrong; whose ears detect in each protest against bigotry - that parent of crime - an insult to piety, that regent of God on earth. I would suggest to such doubters certain obvious distinctions; I would remind them of certain simple truths. — Charlotte Bronte

Doubters Quotes By George Seldes

And so [my brother] Gilbert and I, brought up without a formal religion, remained throughout our lifetimes just what Father was, freethinkers. And, likewise, doubters and dissenters and perhaps Utopians. Father's rule had been 'Question everything, take nothing for granted,' and I never outlived it, and I would suggest it be made the motto of a world journalists' association. — George Seldes

Doubters Quotes By Sam Hamill

We're certainly not perfect, and we're not probably even better than anybody else, except that perhaps we are given to certain kinds of contemplation that provide a valuable balance to the knee-jerk reactionary behavior of most of our newspapers and political leaders. Poets are great doubters. — Sam Hamill

Doubters Quotes By Rumi

There are no minarets built in praise of
what doubters say, no passionate talk about their lives.
The coin faces of officials
keep changing, but not the flame-tongued book of the sun. Be plain as day and a friend to what
lasts. Cynics say the same thing over and over, "I only know what I see." Every external form is
a text to study, embodying a truth, the way medicine contains healing. Does a painter paint
for the sake of the picture and not for the eyes of those who will look at it? — Rumi

Doubters Quotes By John B. S. Haldane

The conservative has but little to fear from the man whose reason is the servant of his passions, but let him beware of him in whom reason has become the greatest and most terrible of the passions. These are the wreckers of outworn empires and civilisations, doubters, disintegrators, deicides. — John B. S. Haldane

Doubters Quotes By Big K.R.I.T.

Just know that I was once considered just a dreamer ... Then I paid my dues and turned so many doubters to believers ... — Big K.R.I.T.

Doubters Quotes By Mohith Agadi

Being successful is the only way to keep doubters' and haters' mouths shut. — Mohith Agadi

Doubters Quotes By W.B.Yeats

There are some doubters even in the western villages. One woman told me last Christmas that she did not believe either in hell or in ghosts. Hell she thought was merely an invention got up by the priest to keep people good; and ghosts would not be permitted, she held, to go 'trapsin about the earth' at their own free will; 'but there are faeries,' she added, 'and little leprechauns, and water-horses, and fallen angels.' I have met also a man with a mohawk Indian tattooed upon his arm, who held exactly similar beliefs and unbeliefs. No matter what one doubts one never doubts the faeries, for, as the man with the mohawk Indian on his arm said to me, 'they stand to reason.' Even the official mind does not escape this faith. ("Reason and Unreason") — W.B.Yeats

Doubters Quotes By Patrice Lovely

You have haters everywhere, you have doubters everywhere. Just keep it moving, do what you do, do the best you can possibly do, and just be appreciative as the where you are and where God has taken you to. — Patrice Lovely

Doubters Quotes By Bill Nye

We can be a lot smarter and more capable than a lot of the technology doubters and climate deniers assume. The people who dismiss concerns about global warming seem to be the pessimists who would rather give up than own up to the problems we have all created. The people who worry most about what we are doing to the planet are the optimists who believe we also have the intelligence - we, as a species, working together - to come up with powerful solutions to the problems we're working on that will change the world for the better. Which way of looking at the world is going to produce a Next Greatest Generation? Will it be the ones who give up, or the ones who get going? — Bill Nye

Doubters Quotes By Eugene H. Peterson

All the persons of faith I know are sinners, doubters, uneven performers. We are secure not because we are sure of ourselves but because we trust that God is sure of us. — Eugene H. Peterson

Doubters Quotes By Edward John Carnell

The heart must be kept tender and pliable; otherwise agnosticism converts to skepticism. In such a case, the value of apologetics is voided, for apologetics is aimed at persuading doubters, not at refuting the defiant. He who demands a kind of proof that the nature of the case renders impossible, is determined that no possible evidence shall convince him. — Edward John Carnell

Doubters Quotes By Gordon B. Hinckley

What I am suggesting is that each of us turn from the negativism that permeates our society and look for the remarkable good among those with whom we associate, that we speak of one another's virtues more than we speak of one another's faults, that optimism replace pessimism, that our faith exceed our fears. When I was a young man and was prone to speak critically, my father would say: Cynics do not contribute, skeptics do not create, doubters do not achieve. — Gordon B. Hinckley

Doubters Quotes By Toba Beta

Doubter wants proof which contributes nothing to her faith. — Toba Beta

Doubters Quotes By Adam McKay

It's time Hawaii answer doubters and produce documents proving that it is a state. What are they hiding? And why haven't we seen these documents? — Adam McKay

Doubters Quotes By Carli Lloyd

You have to fight harder, dig deeper, and prove all the doubters wrongs. — Carli Lloyd

Doubters Quotes By M. Scott Peck

Community is and must be inclusive. The great enemy of community is exclusivity. Groups that exclude others because they are poor or doubters or divorced or sinners or of some different race or nationality are not communities; they are cliques
actually defensive bastions against community. — M. Scott Peck

Doubters Quotes By Andrew McCutchen

We won't let history define our future. Our actions will do the talking. Our determination will turn doubters into believers. — Andrew McCutchen

Doubters Quotes By Michael Phelps

So many people along the way,whatever it is you aspire to do, will tell you it can't be done. But it all it takes is imagination. You dream. You plan. You reach. There will be obstacles. There will doubters. There will be mistakes. But with hard work, with belief, with confidence and trust in yourself and those around you, there no limits, — Michael Phelps

Doubters Quotes By Dave Eggers

We've become a nation of indoor cats, he'd said. A nation of doubters, worriers, overthinkers. Thank God these weren't the kind of Americans who settled this country. They were a different breed! They crossed the country in wagons with wooden wheels! People croaked along the way, and they barely stopped. Back then, you buried your dead and kept moving. — Dave Eggers

Doubters Quotes By Judith Fertig

I loved rhubarb, that hardy, underappreciated garden survivor that leafed out just as the worst of winter melted away. Not everyone was a fan, especially of the bitter, mushy, overcooked version. Yet sometimes a little bitterness could bring out the best in other flavors. Bitter rhubarb made sunny-day strawberry face the realities of life- and taste all the better for it. As I brushed the cakes with a deep pink glaze made from sweet strawberry and bottled rhubarb bitters, I hoped I would change rhubarb doubters. Certainly, the little Bundt cakes looked as irresistible as anything I had ever seen in a French patisserie. — Judith Fertig

Doubters Quotes By Hugh Howey

It was the rare souls full of hope who showed the world what could be done; and then came the thundering herds, those doubters and naysayers who had once put up barriers, now shoving everyone out of their way. — Hugh Howey

Doubters Quotes By Calvin Coolidge

Doubters do not achieve; skeptics do not contribute; cynics do not create. — Calvin Coolidge

Doubters Quotes By Bangambiki Habyarimana

Never create doubt in a person. Doubts have the habit of hanging around even if the original cause is over. Doubt never wants to be caught unawares again — Bangambiki Habyarimana

Doubters Quotes By Ramana Maharshi

See who is the doubter, who is the thinker. It is the ego. Hold it; the other thoughts will die away - the ego will be left pure. See the source from where the ego arises and abide in it. That is pure consciousness. — Ramana Maharshi

Doubters Quotes By Steve Martin

I was seeking comic originality, and fame fell on me as a by-product. The course was more plodding than heroic: I did not strive valiantly against doubters but took incremental steps studded with a few intuitive leaps. — Steve Martin

Doubters Quotes By Bruce Lee

For those who kept saying it can't be done:
Never are the victories or the honors won.
But, rather,
By the believing, doing kind,
While the doubters watched
From Far Behind. — Bruce Lee

Doubters Quotes By Charlene D'Avanzo

Many fiction writers have used novels to promote social change. Why couldn't I? No matter that I had no experience whatsoever writing fiction. I could learn. I decided on mysteries because I love the genre and could envisage a story featuring climate change researchers hounded by climate change doubters. — Charlene D'Avanzo

Doubters Quotes By Michael Phelps

There will be obstacles. There will be doubters. There will be mistakes. But with hard work ... THERE ARE NO LIMITS. — Michael Phelps

Doubters Quotes By Ronald Reagan

Freedom is the right to question and change the established way of doing things. It is the continuing revolution of the marketplace. It is the understanding that allows us to recognize shortcomings and seek solutions. It is the right to put forth an idea, scoffed at by the experts, and watch it catch fire among the people. It is the right to follow your dream, or stick to your conscience even if you're the only one in a sea of doubters. — Ronald Reagan

Doubters Quotes By Vince Young

I have a lot of doubters. I use that as motivation. — Vince Young

Doubters Quotes By Arthur Jones

Don't listen to what people tell you, there are always doubters. Work hard, believe in yourself, and believe in your ability and just work hard. — Arthur Jones

Doubters Quotes By Dietrich Bonhoeffer

But they all stood beneath the cross, enemies and believers, doubters and cowards, revilers and devoted followers. His prayer, in that hour, and his forgiveness, was meant for them all, and for all their sins. The mercy and love of God are at work even in the midst of his enemies. It is the same Jesus Christ, who of his grace calls us to follow him, and whose grace saves the murderer who mocks him on the cross in his last hour. — Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Doubters Quotes By William Boyd

All great artists are doubters. — William Boyd

Doubters Quotes By Ben Roethlisberger

When there are doubters, it always fuels the fire a little bit. When people say you can't do something, if you are a competitor, that drives you. — Ben Roethlisberger

Doubters Quotes By Robert Greene

With such a deep rooted interest you can withstand the setbacks and failures, the days of drudgery, and the hard work that are always a part of any creative action. You can ignore the doubters and critics. You will then feel personally committed to solving the problem and will not rest until you do so. — Robert Greene

Doubters Quotes By Tahir Shah

The quest for a lost city erodes your body, damaging you beyond all reason. But it is your mind that bears the heaviest toll. Listen to the doubters, the worriers and the weak, and the vaguest hope of success evaporates. — Tahir Shah

Doubters Quotes By Toba Beta

In wars amongst ideas,
doubters are the victims. — Toba Beta

Doubters Quotes By Steve Maraboli

You are designed for success. Life's tough, but you are greater than its challenges. No matter what you have been through, you're still here. You have a history of victory.

So ignore the haters, the doubters, and free yourself from the emotional saboteurs. Don't ever forget that you are beautiful, you are capable, you are worthy... you are enough.

Set healthy standards and stick to them. Don't settle. Set healthy goals and follow them. Let your behavior speak the love and passion in your heart. Live life to the fullest... make each day worth remembering... Dream BIG & dare to go for it... Be unapologetically you! — Steve Maraboli

Doubters Quotes By Barton Gellman

Most people inside the bureau believe that the blown opportunities to head off 9/11 would not recur today. Even among the FBI's doubters, few disagree that the bureau has come a long way. — Barton Gellman

Doubters Quotes By A. N. Wilson

I very much dislike the intolerance and moralism of many Christians, and feel more sympathy with Honest Doubters than with them. — A. N. Wilson

Doubters Quotes By Matshona Dhliwayo

It's too risky," said doubters.
"It's too difficult," said scoffers.
"It's pointless," said mockers.
"It's impossible," said haters.
"It's already done," said believers. — Matshona Dhliwayo

Doubters Quotes By William Morris Hunt

How are we going to make painters by lecturing to them? We are going to make questioners, doubters, and talkers. We are going to make painters by painting ourselves, and by showing the paintings of others. By working frankly from our convictions, we are going to make them work frankly from theirs. — William Morris Hunt

Doubters Quotes By Derrick Rose

I still have goals. Seeing those doubters out there, it's gonna be funny seeing them eat their words. — Derrick Rose

Doubters Quotes By Uta Pippig

I definitely want to show how beautiful the marathon can be. I am the opponent of all those who find the marathon bad: the psychologists, the physiologists, the doubters. I make the marathon beautiful for myself and for others. That's why I'm here. — Uta Pippig

Doubters Quotes By Nicholas Of Flue

The Church will be punished because the majority of her members, high and low, will become so perverted. The Church will sink deeper and deeper until she will at last seem to be extinguished, and the succession of Peter and the other Apostles to have expired. But, after this, she will be victoriously exalted in the sight of all doubters. — Nicholas Of Flue

Doubters Quotes By Robin Lopez

The 'Goonies' are a close knit group. They believe in themselves, even though there are doubters throwing darts at them outside ... 'Goonies never say die.' That's pretty in line with the mentality of our team. — Robin Lopez

Doubters Quotes By Bangambiki Habyarimana

Apply the lie detector to everything. You will be amazed at how many lies you will discover. Beware tough, you may discover that you are a lie. — Bangambiki Habyarimana

Doubters Quotes By Nelly

As you become a legend in the game, you build more doubters than you build supporters. And that's fine. I think that comes with anything that's challenging. I think it even comes with sports. The older that Michael Jordan got, I think the more doubted he became. — Nelly

Doubters Quotes By John R.W. Stott

We state and commend the faith only in so far as we go out and put ourselves inside the doubts of the doubters, the questions of the questioners and the loneliness of those who have lost their way. — John R.W. Stott

Doubters Quotes By Dwight Freeney

I'm going to prove the haters and doubters wrong. I like when the doubters try to say that I'm (not still) elite or that I'm too old. I'll use that. — Dwight Freeney

Doubters Quotes By Bangambiki Habyarimana

Doubts are necessary; they keep us on the right path — Bangambiki Habyarimana

Doubters Quotes By Ray Bradbury

Fire the doubters out of your life. — Ray Bradbury

Doubters Quotes By Rumi

To the mind there is such a thing as news, whereas to inner knowing, it's all in the middle of its happening. To doubters, this is a pain. To believers, it's gospel. To the lover and the visionary, it's life as it's being lived. — Rumi

Doubters Quotes By Bruce Lee

The doubters said,
"Man can not fly,"
The doers said,
"Maybe, but we'll try,"
And finally soared
In the morning glow
While non-believers
Watched from below. — Bruce Lee

Doubters Quotes By Julian Barnes

Avoid scoffers.
Ignore doubters.
Reject mockers.
Surprise detractors. — Matshona Dhliwayo

Doubters Quotes By Jane Bryant Quinn

For all the huffing and puffing of the doubters, a home of our own is still the rock on which our hopes are built. Price appreciation aside (and most houses will appreciate, eventually), homeownership is a state of mind. It's your piece of the earth. It's where a family's toes grow roots. It's where the flowers are yours, not God's. — Jane Bryant Quinn

Doubters Quotes By Robert K. Wilcox

The burden of proof is now on the doubters. — Robert K. Wilcox
