Quotes on Belief

Anne Frank:

“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.”

Buddha:

“Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held. Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books. Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin. Believe nothing just because someone else believes it. Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson:

“Belief consists in accepting the affirmations of the soul; Unbelief, in denying them.”

Thomas Jefferson:

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

Luke: “I can’t believe it. ” Yoda: “That is why you fail.’

~ Mahatma Gandhi

‘Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I shall have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it, even if I may not have it at the beginning.’

~ Eleanor Roosevelt

‘The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.’

  • Henry David Thoreau

    “Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.”

  • Sri Chinmoy

    “Some people say they don’t believe in the existence of God, the Supreme. But I wish to say that someone may not believe in God as infinite Consciousness or infinite Power, but he has to have some belief and some conviction of his own; and this is the same as believing in God. If a seeker is against the concept of God, if he is afraid or if he is doubtful, let him follow his own path. Let us take away the word “God” from his dictionary. Let him have the feeling that there is no God. Let him go as far as possible in negating God. At the end of his negation, there he will see that positive Truth emerges. At the end of his journey Truth looms large and he can take this Truth as infinite Consciousness or boundless Energy.”
