Belief quotes
Belief
Loving is half of believing.

- Hugo, Victor
Men are disturbed not by things, but by the view which they take of them.

- Epictetus
If one age believes too much it is natural that another believes too little.

- Buckle, George Earle
The banging and slamming and booming and crashing were something beyond belief. [On Lohengrin]

- Twain, Mark
Many of us spend our whole lives running from feeling with the mistaken belief that you cannot bear the pain. But you have already borne the pain. What you have not done is feel all you are beyond the pain.

- Bartholomew
What we need is not the will to believe, but the wish to find out.

- Russell, Bertrand
OPTIMISM, n. The doctrine, or belief, that everything is beautiful, including what is ugly, everything good, especially the bad, and everything right that is wrong. It is held with greatest tenacity by those most accustomed to the mischance of falling into adversity, and is most acceptably expounded with the grin that apes a smile. Being a blind faith, it is inaccessible to the light of disproof -- an intellectual disorder, yielding to no treatment but death. It is hereditary, but fortunately not contagious.

- Ambrose Bierce
Count Hermann Keyserling once said truly that the greatest American superstition was belief in facts.

- John Gunther
Home of lost causes, and forsaken beliefs, and unpopular names, and impossible loyalties!

- Arnold, Matthew
Faith is much better than belief. Belief is when someone else does the thinking.

- Fuller, R. Buckminster
The liar at any rate recognizes that recreation, not instruction, is the aim of conversation, and is a far more civilized being than the blockhead who loudly expresses his disbelief in a story which is told simply for the amusement of the company.

- Wilde, Oscar
If a horse has four legs, and I'm riding it, I think I can win.

- Cordero Jr., Angel
I wanted to become the seeker, the aroused and passionate explorer, and it was better going at it knowing nothing at all, always choosing the unmarked bottle, always choosing your own unproven method, armed with nothing but faith and a belief in astonishment.

- Pat Conroy
That which has been believed by everyone, always and everywhere, has every chance of being false.

- Valery, Paul
Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

- Lewis Carroll
They can conquer who believe they can.

- Virgil
It is [the] belief in absolutes, I would hazard, that is the great enemy today of the life of the mind. This may seem a rash proposition. The fashion of the time is to denounce relativism as the root of all evil. But history suggests that the damage done to humanity by the relativist is far less than the damage done by the absolutist - by the fellow who, as Mr. Dooley once put it, "does what he thinks th'Lord wud do if He only knew th'facts in th'case."

- Arthur Schlesinger Jr.
We have only to believe. And the more threatening and irreducible reality appears, the more firmly and desperately we must believe. Then, little by little, we shall see the universal horror unbend, and then smile upon us, and then take us in its more than human arms.

- Chardin, Pierre Teilhard De
Reprogramming the unconscious beliefs that block fuller awareness of creative intuitive capabilities depends upon a key characteristic of the mind, namely that it responds to what is vividly imagined as though it were real experience.

- Harman, Willis
By Modernism I mean the positive rejection of the past and the blind belief in the process of change, in novelty for its own sake, in the idea that progress through time equates with cultural progress; in the cult of individuality, originality and self-expression.

- Cruickshank, Dan
