Faith quotes
Faith
God is not on the side of any nation, yet we know He is on the side of justice. Our finest moments [as a nation] have come when we faithfully served the cause of justice for our own citizens, and for the people of other lands.

- George W. Bush
Laughter kills fear, and without fear there can be no faith. For without fear of the devil there is no need for God.

- Connery, Sean
The law of liberty tends to abolish the reign of race over race, of faith over faith, of class over class. It is not the realization of a political ideal; it is the discharge of a moral obligation.

- John Dalberg
Faith is a reasoning trust, a trust which reckons thoughtfully and confidently upon the trustworthiness of God.

- Stott, John R.
Security in human systems we're told will always, always last. Emotions are the sail, and blind faith is the mast. Without the breath of real freedom we're getting nowhere fast.

- Sumner, Gordon
Father, may these people have the vision to see, the faith to accept the truth, the courage to stand by that which they know is right.

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. [Hebrews 11:1]

- Bible
To us also, through every star, through every blade of grass, is not God made visible if we will open our minds and our eyes.

- Carlyle, Thomas
Those who are faithful know only the trivial side of love: it is the faithless who know love's tragedies.

- Oscar Wilde
Faith certainly tells us what the senses do not, but not the contrary of what they see; it is above, not against them.

- Pascal, Blaise
It's lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believe in myself.

- Ali, Muhammad
There are three faithful friends, an old wife, an old dog, and ready money.

- Franklin, Benjamin
Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.

- J. R. R. Tolkien
KING'S EVIL, n. A malady that was formerly cured by the touch of the sovereign, but has now to be treated by the physicians. Thus'the most pious Edward" of England used to lay his royal hand upon the ailing subjects and make them whole -- a crowd of wretched souls That stay his cure: their malady convinces The great essay of art; but at his touch, Such sanctity hath Heaven given his hand, They presently amend, as the "Doctor" in _Macbeth_ hath it. This useful property of the royal hand could, it appears, be transmitted along with other crown properties; for according to "Malcolm," 'tis spoken To the succeeding royalty he leaves The healing benediction. But the gift somewhere dropped out of the line of succession: the later sovereigns of England have not been tactual healers, and the disease once honored with the name "king's evil" now bears the humbler one of "scrofula," from _scrofa_, a sow. The date and author of the following epigram are known only to the author of this dictionary, but it is old enough to show that the jest about Scotland's national disorder is not a thing of yesterday. Ye Kynge his evill in me laye, Wh. he of Scottlande charmed awaye. He layde his hand on mine and sayd: "Be gone!" Ye ill no longer stayd. But O ye wofull plyght in wh. I'm now y-pight: I have ye itche! The superstition that maladies can be cured by royal taction is dead, but like many a departed conviction it has left a monument of custom to keep its memory green. The practice of forming a line and shaking the President's hand had no other origin, and when that great dignitary bestows his healing salutation on strangely visited people, All swoln and ulcerous, pitiful to the eye, The mere despair of surgery, he and his patients are handing along an extinguished torch which once was kindled at the altar-fire of a faith long held by all classes of men. It is a beautiful and edifying "survival" -- one which brings the sainted past close home in our "business and bosoms."

- Ambrose Bierce
Every Age has its own peculiar faith. Any attempt to translate into facts the mission of one Age with the machinery of another, can only end in an indefinite series of abortive efforts. Defeated by the utter want of proportion between the means and the end, such attempts might produce martyrs, but never lead to victory.

- Mazzini, Giuseppe
Faith is that quality that enables us to believe what we know to be untrue.

There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever.

- Gandhi, Mahatma
I am not a quitter. I will fight until I drop. It is just a matter of having some faith in the fact that as long as you are able to draw breath in the universe, you have a chance.

- Cicely Tyson
It is only when all our Christian ancestors are allowed to become our contemporaries that the real splendor of the Christian faith and the Christian life begins to dawn upon us.

- Hough, Lynn Harold
When we try in good faith to believe in materialism, in the exclusive reality of the physical, we are asking our selves to step aside; we are disavowing the very realm where we exist and where all things precious are kept -- the realm of emotion and conscience, of memory and intention and sensation.

- Updike, John
