A Quote by Barbara B. Smith on beginning, faith, life, love, relationships, and trust

Trust is to human relationships what faith is to gospel living. It is the beginning place, the foundation upon which more can be built. Where trust is, love can flourish.

A Quote by Arthur H. Compton on courage, deed, discipline, faith, good, hope, lies, life, meaning, nature, needs, religion, science, scientists, thinking, vision, and world

Faith gives the courage to live and do. Scientists, with their disciplined thinking, like others, need a basis for the good life, for aspiration, for courage to do great deeds. They need a faith to live by. The hope of the world lies in those who have such faith and who use the methods of science to make their visions become real. Visions and hope and faith are not part of science. They are beyond the nature that science knows. Of such is the religion that gives meaning to life.

A Quote by Art Berg on body, day, destruction, earth, emotion, failure, faith, family, friendship, god, health, jobs, pain, spirituality, suffering, and wealth

Centuries earlier, Job suffered immeasurable losses. His wealth was stripped from him; his family destroyed. Finally, after all else was gone, he was stricken with boils and failing health. Every day and every hour he suffered physical, emotional, and spiritual pain. His friends mocked him, but Job remained faithful. He emphatically declared, For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh I shall see God. (Job 19: 25-26.)

A Quote by Antoine R. Ivins on belief, difficulty, effort, faith, future, god, nature, needs, optimism, order, pessimism, purpose, time, and work

This is a time when we need faith, faith of a very definite and positive nature, the faith that will lead us to optimism. I believe that pessimism grows out of a lack of faith, and that if we have the right type of faith, we will be optimistic about the future. It may be true that the immediate future may have difficulties for us, but I feel that out of it all will grow a realization of the purposes of God. And it should be our purpose to develop and maintain in our hearts, if we can, faith in God and in the ultimate consummation of his purposes - a faith that will unite us in a solid, coherent group. We must, of course, in order to do that, develop faith in each other. Without that faith we are not likely to go far in promoting the work of the Lord. If we could properly unite our efforts, all of our temporal difficulties could be overcome, I am sure. If and when we overcome, it will be only because we unite in our purpose through faith in each other.

What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step. It is always the same step, but you have to take it.

A Quote by Anthony Dymoke Powell on faith, love, and passion

He fell in love with himself at first sight and it is a passion to which he has always remained faithful. Selflove seems so often unrequited.

A Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh on faith, freedom, growth, life, love, relationships, and time

We have so little faith in the ebb and flow of life, of love, of relationships. We leap at the flow of time and resist in terror its ebb. We are afraid it will never return. We insist on permanency, on duration, on continuity; when the only continuity possible in life, as in love, is in growth, in fluidity - in freedom.

Anne Lindbergh (1906 -)

A Quote by Angel Abrea on betrayal, criticism, faith, fatherhood, friendship, impatience, journeys, life, patience, travel, and path

When on life's journey it becomes our lot to travel with criticism of skeptics, the hate of some, the rejection of others, the impatience of many, or a friend's betrayal, we must be able to pray in such a manner that an abiding faith and a strong testimony that the Lord will be with us to the end, will compel us to say, "Nevertheless, Father, Thy will be done, and with Thy help, in patience I will follow firmly on the path that takes me back to Thee."

Angel Abrea (1933 -)
