"It's odd, he sharing a sense of doubt can bring men together perhaps even more than sharing a faith. The believer will fight another believer over a shade of difference; the doubter fights only with himself" (p. 52).

"'Time will show.'
'Time will never show. Our lives are too short'" (p. 109).

"I believe what I told her, he told himself as he went to find the Mayor, I believe it of course, but how is it that when I speak of belief, I become aware always of a shadow, the shadow of disbelief haunting my belief?" (p. 172).

"'The professor seems to regard all that as nonsense.'
'So does the bishop, which inclines me to think it is true'" (p. 213).
