Over the past few days, I've been hearing a lot of people talking about doubt.
Everyone thought nothing was going well and doubted what tomorrow would bring. A number of subjects came up, from politics to the stock market, from education to the cost of petrol. So there was a certain unease in the exchange, and doubt seemed to be the big culprit.
This gave me the idea to look up the word and see if it had any advantages.I came to the conclusion that rather than worry about it, it's better to doubt doubt. Where does it come from anyway, if not from our thinking?

The expression exists and I recommend it: "When in doubt, abstain". I believe this word comes from Pythagoras.
I agree that we absolutely must leave room for doubt, otherwise there's no progress and no learning. To learn, you always have to ask questions, and questions mean doubts.  Isn't it true that those who know the most doubt the most? Besides, the more we know, the more we doubt. This is not mine, but a French proverb.

How can we live without knowing. And when I think back to the Middle Ages, I feel bad for all those rather ignorant people. These people must have been terrified of having no certainty. Their knowledge was incomplete, and they had no idea what the world was like. They had no notion of the Persian proverb that doubt is the key to all knowledge.

It's a shame to think that some people believe that doubt is a disease that infects the mind. Could it be that doubt is a phase of despair?
Today, in the face of doubt, we must not despair. To get a better feel for it, I've come up with some rather acceptable quotes.
Here's one from Aristotle: "Doubt is the beginning of wisdom", while Voltaire describes doubt as "an unpleasant mental state". Galileo found that doubt is the father of creation. I confess I don't quite understand this thinking.
I'll raise a sympathetic point: mythology! Didn't all these civilizations end in doubt? And to think that as young as we were, we loved them all. I'd even go so far as to say we cherished them.
And what about love? French anthropologist Gustave Le Bon teaches us that love fears doubt, yet grows through doubt and often perishes from certainty. Isn't it true that conflict in love feeds doubt and confusion?

A word from a certain Léon Daudet: ´ Unhappy, we doubt everything, happy, we doubt of nothing .  A kind recommendation from Erich Maria Remarque: 'In doubt, speak the truth'A comforting word from Freidrich Nietzsche: 'It's not doubt but rather  certainty that drives you mad'.For Francis Bacon, however, doubt is the school of truth. Napoleon Bonaparte, on the other hand, disliked doubt, considering it the enemy of great enterprises.
My final question is: Should we believe in doubt? When you think of all those geniuses who, thanks to doubt and the curiosity to confront a multitude of questions, have ended up giving us a better world, I find my answer there. I've come here to give doubt a title of nobility.
And finally, here's the last word. It comes from Pierre Desproges: 'The only certainty I have is to be in doubt.
