A Quote by John Gile on rationalizations, beliefs, and god

Our philosophies of life
     often evolve from our way of life
           and not vice-versa.
In outher words,
     our philosophies of life
           are often mere rationalizations
                  for our behavior.
Rather than examining our beliefs
     and thinking about what we should be doing.
we do what we feel like doing
     and then put our minds to work,
            like defense attorneys
                   to come up with a good case for us.

A Quote by Richard Feynman on mystery, fear, uncertainty, knowledge, and beliefs

You see, one thing is, I can live with doubt and uncertainty and not knowing. I think it's much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong. I have approximate answers and possible beliefs and different degrees of uncertainty about different things, but I am not absolutely sure of anything and there are many things I don't know anything about, such as whether it means anything to ask why we're here . . . I don't have to know an answer. I don't feel frightened not knowing things, by being lost in a mysterious universe without any purpose, which is the way it really is as far as I can tell. It doesn't frighten me.

Richard Feynman (1918 - 1988)

A Quote by Byron Katie on thoughts, reality, personal, thinking, beliefs, and self-love

Thoughts are just what is. They appear. They're innocent. They're not personal. They're like the breeze or the leaves on the trees or the raindrops falling. Thoughts arise like that, and we can make friends with them. Would you argue with a raindrop?

A Quote by David R. Hawkins on beliefs, auto-responsibility, and happyness

Beliefs are determinant of what one experiences. There are no external 'causes". One discovers the secret payoffs that are obtained from unconscious secret projections. One's underlying programs can be discovered by simply writing down ones litany of grievances and woes and then merely turning them around into their opposites.
"People hate me" stems from one'w own inner hatreds. [...] "People are jealous of me" stems from inner jealousy of others. Thus if we take responsibility for being the author of our world, we come close to its source where we can correct it. By being loving toward others, we discover we are surrounded by love and lovingness. ...

A Quote by Osho on osho, beliefs, christian, hindu, mohammedan, and zombie

Destroy Your Beliefs
 I do not believe in believing.  That has to be
 understood first. Nobody asks me, 'Do you believe in rose flowers? There is no
need.  You can see; the roseflower is there or it
isn't. Only fiction, not facts, have to be believed.

Belief is comfortable, convenient; it dulls.  It is a  kind of drug; it makes you a zombie.  A zombie can be a Christian, \Hindu,
Mohammedan - but they are all zombies, with different labels. And sometimes you get fed up with one label, so they
change the label; the Hindu becomes a Christian, the Christian becomes  a Hindu, a new label, a fresh label, but behind the label the same belief system.
Destroy your beliefs. Certainly it will be uncomfortable, inconvenient but
nothing valuable  is ever gained without inconvenience.

A Quote by Sumner Davenport on gratitude, beliefs, experience, attitude, personality, choices, and sumner davenport

It is not what happens to you or for you that makes you grateful. It's how you respond to what is happening, that shows your belief about gratitude

A Quote by unknown on success, beliefs, and person

"No one can change another person’s beliefs. But you can be accepting of his beliefs and then slowly build an influence for the other person to change himself."
