It’s a great quote, whoever said it. (I see a version from Andre Gide, too, on this page.)

“Believe those who are seeking the truth. Doubt those who find it.” Andre Gide

I think this is clearer than the quote I gave.

Voltaire. Source

Aime la vérité, mais pardonne à l’erreur. (Love truth but pardon error.)

“Deuxième discours: de la liberté,” Sept Discours en Vers sur l’Homme (1738)

Et Gide Sourceé_Gide

Croyez ceux qui cherchent la vérité, doutez de ceux qui la trouvent.

Ainsi soit-il ou Les Jeux sont faits, André Gide, éd. Gallimard, 1952, p. 174
