Faith

"A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything."
"You can never really know someone completely. That’s why it’s the most terrifying thing in the world, really—taking someone on faith, hoping they’ll take you on faith too. It’s such a precarious balance, It’s a wonder we do it at all. And yet.."
"Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens."
"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen- not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."
"belief is the death of intelligence."
"We live in a culture that has, for centuries now, cultivated the idea that the skeptical person is always smarter than one who believes. You can almost be as stupid as a cabbage as long as you doubt."
"All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen."
"I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one's head pointed toward the sun, one's feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death."
"The opposite of the religious fanatic is not the fanatical atheist but the gentle cynic who cares not whether there is a god or not."
"I talk to God but the sky is empty."
"Believe there is a great power silently working all things for good, behave yourself and never mind the rest."
"Faith is not the belief that God will do what you want. It is the belief that God will do what is right."
