A Quote by Domus Ulixes on belief, proof, atheist, life, and choices

When people refuse to see proof, they think their belief helps them so much that losing it will cost more, then they gain from a perhaps more truthfull story.
I can tell you it is not, but one will never see that when in doubt.

And basicly, our choices of what to believe in life, makes our life the way it is now. We are shaped by the beliefs we choose to carry.

A Quote by Domus Ulixes on belief, proof, and justification

And yes, any belief can be justified.
But that is why we call it belief, it isn't bound to proof.

A Quote by Mary Doria Russell on god, inspiration, belief, faith, burning bush, proof, and evidence

Once, long ago, she'd allowed herself to think seriously about what human beings would do, confronted directly with a sign of God's presence in their lives.  The Bible, that repository of Western wisdom, was instructive either as myth or as history, she'd decided.  God was at Sinai and within weeks, people were dancing in front of a golden calf.  God walked in Jerusalem and days later, folks nailed Him up and then went back to work.  Faced with the Divine, people took refuge in the banal, as though answering a cosmic multiple-choice question:  If you saw a burning bush, would you (a) call 911, (b) get the hot dogs, or (c) recognize God?  A vanishingly small number of people would recognize God, Anne had decided years before, and most of them had simply missed a dose of Thorazine.

Just because your idea is now generating revenue isn’t everlasting proof that you will always be right.

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on babies, learning, mortality, parliament, politics, proof, statistics, and wishes

I gather, young man, that you wish to be a Member of Parliament. The first lesson that you must learn is, when I call for statistics about the rate of infant mortality, what I want is proof that fewer babies died when I was Prime Minister than when anyone else was Prime Minister. That is a political statistic.

A Quote by William Wordsworth on death, immortality, music, and proof

Where music dwells Lingering and wandering on as loth to die, Like thoughts whose very sweetness yieldeth proof That they were born for immortality.

A Quote by William Shakespeare on accidents, beauty, charm, faith, farewells, heroism, negotiation, proof, and trust

Let every eye negotiate for itself And trust no agent; for beauty is a witch Against whose charms faith melteth into blood. This is an accident of hourly proof, Which I mistrusted not. Farewell, therefore, Hero!

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
