Belief

«In the search for truth,»

Eric Micha'el Leventhal

«A man who can't uphold his beliefs is pathetic dead or alive - Hajime Saito»

Nobuhiro Watsuki


«Friends ask you questions; enemies question you.»

Criss Jami

Andy Rooney


«That fighting of a battle without belief is, I think, the sorriest task which ever falls to the lot of any man.»

Anthony Trollope


«I'm not a believer in predetermined fates, being rewarded for one's efforts. I'm not a believer in karma. The reason why I try to be a good person is because I think it's the right thing to do. If I commit fewer bad acts there will be fewer bad acts, maybe other people will join in committing fewer bad acts, and in time there will be fewer and fewer of them.»

Daniel Handler


«The only principle of Success in Life :"You must be present to win.»

Abhishek Shukla


«At its Greek root, "to believe" simply means "to give one's heart to." Thus, if we can determine what it is we give our heart to, then we will know what it is we believe.»

Kathleen Norris


«And, suddenly, as if her head cleared, she was quite sure that wonderful things did indeed exist. Even if they're only in my own mind, she thought, they're there and worth fighting for.»

Diana Wynne Jones


«If I say ‘there is no God’, I disrespect your belief; how when you say ‘there is a God’ you do not disrespect mine?»

M.F. Moonzajer


«Don't be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality. If you can dream it, you can make it so.»

Belva Davis


«I like the confusion you get between science and religion … that’s where belief lies and art as well.»

Damien Hirst


«Part of God's work in his people is synchronizing the heart and the mind thus providing freedom from the deceit of emotion-based beliefs. Emotions are changing while truth is absolute. They don't believe simply because it sounds good, or deep, beautiful, happy, fun, cool, simple, or intelligent to them; but because it's true.»

Criss Jami


«An audience that is unwilling to suspend its own presuppositions and biases while considering an opposed (or even unopposed) viewpoint not only frustrates the function of extended argument but effectively denies its own beliefs a rational basis.»

Vincent E. Barry


«If you believe it, it happens. If you don't, it doesn't. When you believe him, you put your own power in his hands.»

Jerry Spinelli


«My breathe would catch at the sight of violets-so common in the woods at home, so surprising in the mountains. The violet's message was "Keep up your courage, stay true to what you believe in." p264»

Jessica Stern


«I believed in immaculate conception and spontaneous combustion. I believed in aliens from outer space and vampires, prophecy, and the resurrection of the dead. I had deja vu many times each day. I was thirteen.»

Kate Braverman


«The idea of atomic energy is illusionary but it has taken so powerful a hold on the minds, that although I have preached against it for twenty-five years, there are still some who believe it to be realizable.»

Nikola Tesla


«You owe it to your destiny to never allow your mind to become a playground for negative thoughts and beliefs.»

Edmond Mbiaka


«The only goal in life is to be happy, genuinely, intensely and consistently , regardless of what it looks like to others.»

Abhishek Shukla


«Religion! Is what you hear at church religion? Is that which can bend and turn, and descend and ascend, to fit every crooked phase of selfish, worldly society, religion? Is that religion which is less scrupulous, less generous, less just, less considerate for man, than even my own ungodly, worldly, blinded nature? No! When I look for religion, I must look for something above me, and not something beneath.»

Harriet Beecher Stowe


«You’re not necessarily supposed to believe it…You’re just supposed to believe in it.»

Daniel Wallace


«Was I a fool to believe in fate or in some destined illusionary path? I don't know. But we all need something to believe in.»

John-Talmage Mathis


«Life is too short to be anything but happy. So kiss slowly. Love deeply. Forgive quickly. Take chances and never have regrets. Forget the past but remember what it taught you.»

Abhishek Shukla


«Some only follow the holy man while others only follow the warlord. But the truth is, both sides are within all of us, and if people could only see that, they wouldn't have to wear masks, or pretend to be holy like a holy man, or pretend that nothing can hurt them like a warlord. They could just be themselves, unjudged.»

A.J. Darkholme


«Embracing doubt is sometimes threatening, as we fear losing our faith if we explore our doubts. Following that thought, if one loses one’s faith, then as some religions dictate, that individual cannot enter heaven. Since heaven is the reward of an earthly existence, doubt becomes the enemy of this reward.»

David W. Earle


«When all help is stopped, when your loved ones started doubting your competence, when failure seems almost confirmed, but no matter what, if you make one more attempt, that final step will fetch you the victory.»

Amit Kalantri


«Even now, there are still days so beautiful, I almost believe in God.»

Ann Hood


«Believe something and the Universe is on its way to being changed. Because you've changed, by believing. Once you've changed, other things start to follow. Isn't that the way it works?»

Diane Duane
