Belief quotes
Belief
First of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself - nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.

- Franklin D. Roosevelt
There is danger in both belief and unbelief.

- Phaedrus
That willing suspension of disbelief for the moment, which constitutes poetic faith.

- Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
One of the joys we have in being human is in exercising our freedom to choose and to take each case as it comes to us. We are not robots who are forced into behaviors by their programming. We see things; we think about things; and we choose our course of action or beliefs appropriately. And as long as that remains true of us, we will live every day of our lives on one slippery slope or another. There is no reason to fear this.

- Real Live Preacher
No sadder proof can be given of a person's own tiny stature, than their disbelief in great people.

- Carlyle, Thomas
Remember that what you believe will depend very much on what you are.

- Noah Porter
We are all captives of the picture in our head -- our belief that the world we have experienced is the world that really exists.

- Lippmann, Walter
People give us credit only for what we ourselves believe.

- Gutzkow
The essential element in personal magnetism is a consuming sincerity -- an overwhelming faith in the importance of the work one has to do.

- Barton, Bruce
No human beings more dangerous than those who have suffered for a belief: the great persecutors are recruited from the martyrs not quite beheaded. Far from diminishing the appetite for power, suffering exasperates it.

- Cioran, E. M.
They were so strong in their beliefs that there came a time when it hardly mattered what exactly those beliefs were; they all fused into a single stubbornness.

- Louise Erdrich
I've always believed no matter how many shots I miss, I'm going to make the next one.

- Thomas, Isiah
We won't even attempt to achieve what we do not believe at a deep level we can have or deserve.

- Ross, Ruth
There seems to be a great misunderstanding on the part of a great many people to the effect that when you cease to believe you may cease to behave.

- Kronenberger, Louis
The secret of making something work in your lives is, first of all, the deep desire to make it work: then the faith and belief that it can work: then to hold that clear definite vision in your consciousness and see it working out step by step, without one thought of doubt or disbelief.

- Caddy, Eileen
It's not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.

- Robbins, Anthony
You can absolutely do anything if you have the belief and the desire. You're going to have setbacks, but it's important to get back up and keep going. It's a journey.

- Tara Nott
GHOUL, n. A demon addicted to the reprehensible habit of devouring the dead. The existence of ghouls has been disputed by that class of controversialists who are more concerned to deprive the world of comforting beliefs than to give it anything good in their place. In 1640 Father Secchi saw one in a cemetery near Florence and frightened it away with the sign of the cross. He describes it as gifted with many heads an an uncommon allowance of limbs, and he saw it in more than one place at a time. The good man was coming away from dinner at the time and explains that if he had not been "heavy with eating" he would have seized the demon at all hazards. Atholston relates that a ghoul was caught by some sturdy peasants in a churchyard at Sudbury and ducked in a horsepond. (He appears to think that so distinguished a criminal should have been ducked in a tank of rosewater.) The water turned at once to blood "and so contynues unto ys daye." The pond has since been bled with a ditch. As late as the beginning of the fourteenth century a ghoul was cornered in the crypt of the cathedral at Amiens and the whole population surrounded the place. Twenty armed men with a priest at their head, bearing a crucifix, entered and captured the ghoul, which, thinking to escape by the stratagem, had transformed itself to the semblance of a well known citizen, but was nevertheless hanged, drawn and quartered in the midst of hideous popular orgies. The citizen whose shape the demon had assumed was so affected by the sinister occurrence that he never again showed himself in Amiens and his fate remains a mystery.

- Ambrose Bierce
If you do not believe in yourself... chances are nobody else will.

A belief is like a guillotine, just as heavy, just as light.

- Kafka, Franz
