The mysteries of faith are degraded if they are made into an object of affirmation and negation when in reality they should be an object of contemplation.

We must not sit still and look for miracles, up and doing and the Lord will be with thee. Prayer and pains through faith in Christ Jesus will do anything.

Back of every creation supporting it like an arch is faith. Enthusiasm is nothing: it comes and goes. But if one believes then miracles occur.

We know only that we are living in these bodies and have a vague idea because we have heard it and because our faith tells us so that we possess souls. As to what good qualities there may be in our souls or who dwells within them or how precious they are those are things which seldom consider and so we trouble little about carefully preserving the soul's beauty.

If you think you can win you can win. Faith is necessary to victory.

Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.

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

Voltaire

Life is a battle between faith and reason in which each feeds upon the other drawing sustenance from it and destroying it.

Reinhold Niebuhr

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