belief

A Quote by Eileen Caddy. on desire, belief, faith, vision, and consciousness

The secret of making something work in your lives is first of all,
the deep desire to make it work; then the faith and belief that it
can work; then to hold that clear definite vision in your consciousness and see it working out step by step, without one thought of doubt
or disbelief.

Eileen Caddy.

A Quote by Earon on belief, disbelief, critical thinking, novels, films, politics, economics, technology, religion, suspending disbelief, and uncritical acceptance

"The price of temporarily suspending our disbelief while reading novels and viewing films is small.  The price of suspending our disbelief (turning off our critical thinking) in matters of politics, economics, technology and religion is immense.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on wrong, doing right, do right, convince, believe, and belief

If you would convince a man that he does wrong, do right. But do not care to convince him. Men will believe what they see. Let them see.

A Quote by sam harris on faith, belief, and conviction

If religious war is ever to become unthinkable for us, in the way that slavery and cannibalism seem poised too, it will be a matter of our having dispensed with the dogma of faith.  If our tribalism is ever to give way to an extended moral identity, our religious beliefs can no longer be sheltered from the tides of genuine inquiry and genuine criticism.  It is time we realized that to presume knowledge where one has only pious hope is a species of evil.  Wherever conviction grows in inverse proportion to its justification, we have lost the very basis for human cooperation.  Where we have reason for what we believe, we have no need of faith; where we have no reasons, we have lost both our connection to the world and to one another.  People who harbor strong convictions without evidence belong at the margins of our societies, not in our halls of power.  The only thing we should respect in a person’s faith is his desire for a better life in this world;  we need never have respected his certainty that one awaits him in the next.
