I came upon a grand quote about doubt last night: 'The only thing I don't doubt is my doubt'. Of course I can't remember who done said that, but who cares? I like it. I shall make it mine.
There was another one about skepticism being the root of knowledge, but I'm skeptical about that one.
Doubt's good stuff, ditto skepticism, it stops one from believing in stuff like the tooth fairy, the easter bunny and altruistic politicians. I've had it since I was tiny too, so you can't say its the cynicism of middle-age, or that I ever had any faith to lose. I never believed in Santa Claus, not ever.
Doubt's a process though, and I suppose it leads to belief of sorts: I doubt I'll get up this morning - ah, but I doubt my boss will accept that, so I believe I'll get up and go to work after all.
....and that's where I am now. Deep, hey?
