I believe that man will not merely endure. He will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance.
For my future I have no concern, and as a true philosopher, I never would have any, for I know not what it may be: as a Christian, on the other hand, faith must believe without discussion, and the stronger it is, the more it keeps silent.
Anyone who is to find Christ must first find the church. How could anyone know where Christ is and what faith is in him unless he knew where his believers are?
Faith keeps many doubts in her pay. If I could not doubt, I should not believe.
I not only believe in one God, but my faith as a Christian is also grafted upon that tree of philosophy which has never spoiled anything.
Man can believe the impossible, but man can never believe the improbable.
If you would convince a man that he does wrong, do right. Men will believe what they see.
Behavior is what a man does, not what he thinks, feels, or believes.
Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe.
Yet the stupid believe they are awake, busily and brightly assuming they understand things, calling this man ruler, that one herdsman? How dense! Confucius and you are both dreaming! And when I say you are dreaming, I am dreaming, too.
Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.
It is hard to believe that a man is telling the truth when you know that you would lie if you were in his place.
Man is what he believes.
Don't you believe that there is in man a deep so profound as to be hidden even to him in whom it is?
A man of courage is also full of faith.
Faith is a living and unshakable confidence, a belief in the grace of God so assured that a man would die a thousand deaths for its sake.
I must have had faith that day. When I went out, I was Henry Fonda again. An unemployed actor but a man.
I hold that a writer who does not passionately believe in the perfectibility of man has no dedication nor any membership in literature.
Faith is not belief, it is love. Faith is not belief it is not half, it is total. Faith is not belief because there is no doubt in it, so how can you believe?
Faith is the sense of life, that sense by virtue of which man does not destroy himself, but continues to live on. It is the force whereby we live.
Faith is to believe what we do not see; and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe.
Faith is a living, daring confidence in God's grace, so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times.
I believe that a man is converted when first he hears the low, vast murmur of life, of human life, troubling his hitherto unconscious self.
It is not the oath that makes us believe the man, but the man the oath.
No intelligent man believes that anybody ever willingly errs or willingly does base and evil deeds; they are well aware that all who do base and evil things to them unwillingly.
