Belief quotes
Belief
Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for -- because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.

- Marshall, Peter
Because religious belief, or non-belief, is such an important part of every person's life, freedom of religion affects every individual. State churches that use government power to support themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths undermine all our civil rights. Moreover, state support of the church tends to make the clergy unresponsive to the people and leads to corruption within religion. Erecting the "wall of separation between church and state," therefore, is absolutely essential in a free society.

- Thomas Jefferson
Strong beliefs win strong men, and then make them stronger.

- Walter Bagehot
Alas, human vices, however horrible one might imagine them to be, contain the proof (were it only in their infinite expansion) of man's longing for the infinite; but it is a longing that often takes the wrong route. It is my belief that the reason behind all culpable excesses lies in this depravation of the sense of the infinite.

- Baudelaire, Charles
Without cultural sanction, most or all our religious beliefs and rituals would fall into the domain of mental disturbance.

- John Schumaker
The Godless would deny and destroy human rights .... the liberties of a nation cannot be secure when belief in God is abandoned.

- U.S. Senate Chaplain Richard Halverson
First thing every morning before you arise say out loud, I believe, three times.

- Peale, Norman Vincent
Truth will always be truth, regardless of lack of understanding, disbelief or ignorance.

- Stone, W. Clement
We are what we believe we are

- Cardozo, Benjamin N.
Absurdity, n.: A statement or belief manifestly inconsistent with one's own opinion.

- Ambrose Bierce
The belief that politics can be scientific must inevitably produce tyrannies. Politics cannot be a science, because in politics theory and practice cannot be separated, and the sciences depend upon their separation. Empirical politics must be kept in bounds by democratic institutions, which leave it up to the subjects of the experiment to say whether it shall be tried, and to stop it if they dislike it, because, in politics, there is a distinction, unknown to science, between Truth and Justice.

- Auden, W. H.
What a person believes is not as important as how a person believes.

- Virkkala, Timothy
Much of the modern resistance to chastity comes from men's belief that they own their bodies -- those vast and perilous estates, pulsating with the energy that made the worlds, in which they find themselves without their consent and from which they are ejected at the pleasure of Another!

- Lewis, C. S.
People give us credit only for what we ourselves believe.

- Gutzkow
Belief is the death of intelligence.

- Robert Anton Wilson
FIB, n. A lie that has not cut its teeth. An habitual liar's nearest approach to truth: the perigee of his eccentric orbit. When David said: "All men are liars," Dave, Himself a liar, fibbed like any thief. Perhaps he thought to weaken disbelief By proof that even himself was not a slave To Truth; though I suspect the aged knave Had been of all her servitors the chief Had he but known a fig's reluctant leaf Is more than e'er she wore on land or wave. No, David served not Naked Truth when he Struck that sledge-hammer blow at all his race; Nor did he hit the nail upon the head: For reason shows that it could never be, And the facts contradict him to his face. Men are not liars all, for some are dead. Bartle Quinker

- Ambrose Bierce
When my heart can beat no more I hope I die for a principle or a belief that I have lived for.

- Tupac Shakur
The belief that there are other life forms in the universe is a matter of faith. There is not a single shred of evidence for any other life forms, and in forty years of searching, none has been discovered. There is absolutely no evidentiary reason to maintain this belief.

- Michael Crichton
Belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort, or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence.

- Wilson, Robert
The three most important parts a man has are, briefly, his private parts, his money and his religious beliefs.

- Samuel Butler
