faith

Faith quotes
Faith
Faith is an excitement and an enthusiasm: it is a condition of intellectual magnificence to which we must cling as to a treasure, and not squander on our way through life in the small coin of empty words, or in exact and priggish argument.

- Sand, George
The activity of love and faith is what makes heaven.

- Emanuel Swedenborg
Any hope that America would finally grow up vanished with the rise of fundamentalist Christianity. Fundamentalism, with its born-again regression, its pink-and-gold concept of heaven, its literal-mindedness, its rambunctious good cheer... its anti-intellectualism... its puerile hymns... and its faith-healing... are made to order for King Kid America.

- King, Florence
Nevertheless, in order to imbue civilization with sound principles and enliven it with the spirit of the gospel, it is not enough to be illumined with the gift of faith and enkindled with the desire of forwarding a good cause. For this end it is necessary to take an active part in the various organizations and influence them from within. And since our present age is one of outstanding scientific and technical progress and excellence, one will not be able to enter these organizations and work effectively from within unless he is scientifically competent, technically capable and skilled in the practice of his own profession.

- Pope John XXIII
Action and faith enslave thought, both of them in order not be troubled or inconvenienced by reflection, criticism, and doubt.

- Amiel, Henri Frederic
If you have abandoned one faith, do not abandon all faith. There is always an alternative to the faith we lose. Or is it the same faith under another mask?

- Greene, Graham
It is necessary to the happiness of man that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing or in disbelieving, it consists in professing to believe what one does not believe.

- Thomas Paine
If he have faith, the believer cannot be restrained. He betrays himself. He breaks out. He confesses and teaches this gospel to the people at the risk of life itself.

- Luther, Martin
Faith is the vision of the heart; it sees God in the dark as well as in the day.

Do you know how to digest your food? Do you know how to fill your lungs with air? Do you know how to establish, regulate and direct the metabolism of your body -- the assimilation of foodstuff so that it builds muscles, bones and flesh? No, you don't know how consciously, but there is a wisdom within you that does know.

- Curtis, Donald
UNIVERSALIST, n. One who forgoes the advantage of a Hell for persons of another faith.

- Ambrose Bierce
Think not those faithful who praise all thy words and actions, but those who kindly reprove thy faults.

- Socrates
Faith is not without worry or care, but faith is fear that has said a prayer.

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
A true friend knows your weaknesses but shows you your strengths; feels your fears but fortifies your faith; sees your anxieties but frees your spirit; recognizes your disabilities but emphasizes your possibilities.

- William Arthur Ward
The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the will to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible.

- DeVos, Richard M.
It is faith among men that holds the moral elements of society together, as it is faith in God that binds the world to his throne.

- Evarts, William M.
The power in which we must have faith if we would be well, is the creative and curative power which exists in every living thing.

- Kellogg, John
It could be that our faithlessness is a cowering cowardice born of our very smallness, a massive failure of imagination. If we were to judge nature by common sense or likelihood, we wouldn't believe the world existed.

- Dillard, Annie
Researchers, with science as their authority, will be able to cut [Animals] up, alive, into small pieces, drop them from a great height to see if they are shattered by the fall, or deprive them of sleep for sixteen days and nights continuously for the purposes of an iniquitous monograph... Animal trust, undeserved faith, when at last will you turn away from us? Shall we never tire of deceiving, betraying, tormenting animals before they cease to trust us?

- Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
