Belief quotes and quotations

Belief in a certain series of myths was neither obligatory as a part of the true religion, nor was it supposed that, by believing, a man acquired religious merit and conciliated the favour of the gods.
William Robertson Smith

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
Anatole France

It is not bigotry to be certain we are right; but it is bigotry to be unable to imagine how we might possibly have gone wrong.
G. K. Chesterton

Only barbarians are not curious about where they come from, how they came to be where they are, where they appear to be going, whether they wish to go there, and if so, why, and if not, why not.
Isaiah Berlin

There are two ways to slide easily through life: to believe everything or to doubt everything; both ways save us from thinking.
Alfred Korzybski

Ignorance is preferable to error, and he is less remote from the truth who believes nothing than he who believes what is wrong.
Thomas Jefferson

Faith is not belief. Belief is passive. Faith is active.
Edith Hamilton

The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.
Frank Lloyd Wright

As long as people believe in absurdities, they will continue to commit atrocities.
Voltaire

One needs something to believe in, something for which one can have whole-hearted enthusiasm. One needs to feel that one's life has meaning, that one is needed in this world.
Hannah Senesh

In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can't build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery and death.
Anne Frank

To succeed, we must first believe that we can.
Michael Korda

I feel no need for any other faith than my faith in the kindness of human beings. I am so absorbed in the wonder of earth and the life upon it that I cannot think of heaven and angels.
Pearl S. Buck

Nothing is easier than self-deceit. For what each man wishes, that he also believes to be true.
Demosthenes

When men destroy their old gods they will find new ones to take their place.
Pearl S. Buck

Believe those who are seeking the truth; doubt those who find it.
Andre Gide

If you must tell me your opinions, tell me what you believe in. I have plenty of douts of my own.
Johann Goethe

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.
Philip K. Dick

Belief consists in accepting the affirmations of the soul; Unbelief, in denying them.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

An idealist believes the short run doesn't count. A cynic believes the long run doesn't matter. A realist believes that what is done or left undone in the short run determines the long run.
Sydney J. Harris

Habits of thought persist through the centuries; and while a healthy brain may reject the doctrine it no longer believes, it will continue to feel the same sentiments formerly associated with that doctrine.
Charlotte Perkins Gilman

The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus by the Supreme Being in the womb of a virgin, will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter.
Thomas Jefferson
