Faith

A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything. - Friedrich Nietzsche

A faith that cannot survive collision with the truth is not worth many regrets. - Arthur C. Clarke

Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe. - Voltaire

Faith gives you an inner strength and a sense of balance and perspective in life. - Gregory Peck

Faith I have, in myself, in humanity, in the worthwhileness of the pursuits in entertainment for the masses. But wide awake, not blind faith, moves me. - Walt Disney

Faith is a bird that feels dawn breaking and sings while it is still dark. - Rabindranath Tagore

Faith is a state of mind that can be conditioned through self-discipline. Faith will accomplish. - Bruce Lee

Faith makes it possible to achieve that which man's mind can conceive and believe. - Bruce Lee

Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens. - J. R. R. Tolkien

People always demand respect for their faith. You’ve noticed this happening. Why should I respect someone who makes enormous claims on no evidence, and when confronted with that fact, says, “Well, I don’t need any evidence, I’ve got faith’. I think that extraordinary claims, such as that they know, not just that there is a god, but that they know his mind, they know his instructions, they’ve had revealed truth from him: a claim like that demands extraordinary evidence. Instead of which, they say, ‘No, how about no evidence at all, and just take me on faith?’ Why am I supposed to respect that? I don’t respect it. I suspect it. - Unknown

The greatest act of faith some days is to simply get up and face another day. - Amy Gatliff

The keys to patience are acceptance and faith. Accept things as they are, and look realistically at the world around you. Have faith in yourself and in the direction you have chosen. - Ralph Marston

The struggle now going on for the world will never be decided by bombs or rockets, by armies or military might. The real crisis we face today is a spiritual one; at root, it is a test of moral will and faith. - Ronald Reagan

To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible. - Thomas Aquinas


You either have faith that a God exists, or you ‘know’. You can’t know and have faith, or have faith and know, you know? - Michael Sherlock

We think of faith as a source of comfort and understanding but find our expression of faith sowing division; we believe ourselves to be a tolerant people even as racial, religious, and cultural tensions roil the landscape. And instead of resolving these tensions or mediating these conflicts, our politics fans them, exploits them, and drives us further apart. - Barack Obama

Without faith a man can do nothing; with it all things are possible. - Sir William Osler
