When in Doubt

"Doubt is useful for a while. We must all pass through the garden of Gethsemane, if Christ played with doubt, so must we. If Christ spent an anguish night in prayer, if He burst out from the Cross, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” then surely we are also permitted doubt. But we must move on. To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation."

- a reminder quotation from Yann Martel's award-winning novel, Life of Pi, which I finished reading on December 2004 -
