faith

A Quote by Alice Hansche Mortenson on doubt, eternity, faith, god, impossibility, justice, life, trust, and path

Doubt cries, "It is impossible! You can't, you can't go on!" Faith softly whispers, "Yes, you can. Just trust in God. Be Calm." Doubt cries, "Look down! Your path is steep And rough with stones and briar!" Faith gently says, "I'll take your hand. It's beautiful up higher." Doubt has not one thing to give But "going back" alone; Faith has God, eternal life, And heirship to a throne! And so, on unseen eagle's wings, These feet of clay are borne. While faith within me sings and sings, We rise above the storm!

A Quote by Alfred Armand Montapert on control, faith, fate, people, philosophy, poets, power, questions, soul, and world

Question: Why are we Masters of our Fate, the captains of our souls? Because we have the power to control our thoughts, our attitudes. That is why many people live in the withering negative world. That is why many people live in the Positive Faith world. And you don't have to be a poet or a philosopher to know which is best.

Alfred Montapert (1906 -)

A Quote by Alexander Pope on charity, concern, faith, government, hope, life, mankind, and world

For forms of government let fools contest; Whate'er is best administer'd is best. For modes of faith let graceless zealots fight; His can't be wrong whose life is in the right. In faith and hope the world will disagree, But all mankind's concern is charity.

A Quote by Alexander Mille on faith, integrity, and students

"Have I the right to keep my faith," said a student inquirer, "at the price of my intellectual integrity?" The answer would have to be that the "faith" which is kept at such a price is not faith at all.

A Quote by Flaccus Albinus Alcuinus Alcuin of York on driving, faith, force, men, people, and religion

Men can be attracted but not forced to the faith. You may drive people to baptism, (but) you won't move them one step further in religion.

A Quote by Albert Camus on despair, faith, hatred, passion, and reason

To those who despair of everything, reason cannot provide a faith, but only passion, and in this case it must be the same passion that lay at the root of the despair, namely humiliation and hatred.
