Faith is the soul going out of itself for all its wants.
      - Thomas Boston

Faith is the very first thing you should pack in a hope chest.
      - Sarah Ban Breathnach

The faith which you keep must be a faith that demands obedience, and you can keep it only by obeying it.
      - Phillips Brooks

Faith is the champion of grace, and love the nurse; but humility is the beauty of grace.
      - Thomas Brooks

Much faith will yield unto us here our heaven, but any faith, if true, will yield us heaven hereafter.
      - Thomas Brooks

In our age faith and charity are found, but they are found apart. We tolerate everybody, because we doubt everything; or else we tolerate nobody, because we believe something.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Strike from mankind the principle of faith, and men would have no more history than a flock of sheep.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Faith is the pencil of the soul
  That pictures heavenly things.
      - Thomas Burbridge

Pin thy faith to no man's sleeve. Hast thou not two eyes of thy own?
      - Thomas Carlyle

Faith is love taking the form of aspiration.
      - William Ellery Channing

All the strength and force of man comes from his faith in things unseen. He who believes is strong; he who doubts is weak. Strong convictions precede great actions. The man strongly possessed of an idea is the master of all who are uncertain or wavering. Clear, deep, living convictions rule the world.
      - James Freeman Clarke

In your intercourse with sects, the sublime and abstruse doctrines of Christian belief belong to the Church; but the faith of the individual, centred in his heart, is, or may be, collateral to them. Faith is subjective.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Never yet did there exist a full faith in the Divine Word (by whom light as well as immortality was brought into the world) which did not expand the intellect, while it purified the heart--which did not multiply the aims and objects of the understanding, while it fixed and simplified those of the desires and passions.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Faith makes the discords of the present the harmonies of the future.
      - Robert Collyer

Faith and works are necessary to our spiritual life as Christians, as soul and body are to our natural life as men; for faith is the soul of religion, and works the body.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

It is sufficiently humiliating to our nature to reflect that our knowledge is but as she rivulet, our ignorance as the sea. On points of the highest interest, the moment we quit the light of revelation we shall find that Platonism itself is intimately connected with Pyrrhonism, and the deepest inquiry with the darkest doubt.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

We should act with as much energy as those who expect everything from themselves; and we should pray with as much earnestness as those who expect everything from God.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

"Take courage, soul!
  Hold not thy strength in vain!
    With faith o'ercome the steeps
      Thy God hath set for thee.
        Beyond the Alpine summits of great pain
          Lieth thine Italy."
      - Rose Terry Cooke, Beyond

His faith, perhaps, in some nice tenets might
  Be wrong; his life, I'm sure, was in the right.
      - Abraham Cowley, On the Death of Crashaw
         (l. 55)

Faith needs her daily bread.
      - Georgiana M. Craik (pseudonym of Mrs. A.W. May)

Just go on . . . and faith will soon return.
      - Jean Le Rond d'Alembert,
        to a friend hesitant with respect to infinitestimals,
        "The Mathematical Experience" by P.J. Davis and R. Hersh

Faith lights us through the dark to Deity.
      - Sir William D'Avenant

Faith is a fine invention
  For gentlemen who see;
    But Microscopes are prudent
      In an emergency.
      - Emily Dickinson, Poems--Second Series

A lively faith will bear aloft the mind, and leave the luggage of good works behind.
      - John Dryden

For mysterious things of faith, rely on the proponent, Heaven's authority.
      - John Dryden
