  Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
  But never doubt, I love.

That the probation bear no hinge, nor loop,
To hang a doubt on: or woe upon thy life!
        Shakespeare.—Othello, Act III. Scene 3. (Othello to Iago.)
Never do any thing, concerning the rectitude of which you have a doubt.
