To take up half on trust, and half to try,
  Name it not faith but bungling bigotry.
      - John Dryden, The Hind and the Panther
         (pt. I, l. 141)

Faith makes us, and not we it; and faith makes its own forms.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Americans have no faith, they rely on the power of a dollar; they are deaf to sentiment.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The disease with which the human mind now labors is want of faith.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The highest historical probability can be adduced in support of the proposition that, if it were possible to annihilate the Bible, and with it all its influences, we should destroy with it the whole spiritual system of the moral world.
      - Edward Everett

Faith is letting down our nets into the untransparent deeps, at the Divine command, not knowing what we shall take.
      - Rev. Frederick William Faber

When the soul grants what reason makes her see,
  That is true faith, what's more's credulity.
      - Sir Francis Fane

Works without faith are like a fish without water, it wants the element it should live in. A building without a basis cannot stand; faith is the foundation, and every good action is as a stone laid.
      - Owen Felltham (Feltham)

In affairs of this world men are saved, not by faith, but by the want of it.
      - Henry Fielding

Christians are directed to have faith in Christ, as the effectual means of obtaining the change they desire.
      - Benjamin Franklin

We cannot live on probabilities. The faith in which we can live bravely and die in peace must be a certainty, so far as it professes to be a faith at all, or it is nothing.
      - James Anthony Froude

We lean on Faith; and some less wise have cried,
  "Behold the butterfly, the see that's cast!"
    Vain hopes that fall like flowers before the blast!
      What man can look on Death unterrified?
      - Richard Watson Gilder, Love and Death
         (st. 2)

It is by faith that poetry, as well as devotion, soars above this dull earth; that imagination breaks through its clouds, breathes a purer air, and lives in a softer light.
      - Henry Giles

Faith is a homely, private capital; as there are public savings-banks and poor funds, out of which in times of want we can relieve the necessities of individuals, so here the faithful take their coin in peace.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

If you have any faith, give me, for heaven's sake, a share of it! Your doubts you may keep to yourself, for I have a plenty of my own.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Your messages I hear, but faith has not been given;
  The dearest child of Faith is Miracle
    [Ger., Die Botschaft hor' ich wohl, allein mir fehlt der Glaube;
      Das Wunder ist des Glaubens liebstes Kind.]
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust
         (I, 1, 413)

Faith is the backbone of the social and the foundation of the commercial fabric; remove faith between man and man, and society and commerce fall to pieces. There is not a happy home on earth but stands on faith; our heads are pillowed on it, we sleep at night in its arms with greater security for the safety of our lives, peace, and prosperity than bolts and bars can give.
      - Thomas Guthrie (1)

Faith is a practical habit, which like every other, is strengthened and increased by continual exercise. It is nourished by meditation, by prayer, and the devout perusal of the Scriptures; and the light which it diffuses becomes stronger and clearer by an uninterrupted converse with its object, and a faithful compliance with its dictates.
      - Robert Hall

The faith to which the Scriptures attach such momentous consequences and ascribe such glorious exploits is a practical habit, which, like every other, is strengthened and increased by continual exercise.
      - Robert Hall

The power of faith will often shine forth the most when the character is naturally weak.
      - Augustus William Hare

Heaven alone, not earth, is destined to witness the repose of faith.
      - Moses Harvey

Faith is necessary to victory.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

What sought they thus afar?
  Bright jewels of the mine?
    The wealth of seas, the spoils of war?--
      They sought a faith's pure shrine!
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans,
        Landing of the Pilgrim Fathers

None live so easily, so pleasantly, as those that live by faith.
      - Matthew (Mathew) Henry

Faith is building on what you know is here so you can reach what you know is there.
      - Cullen Hightower
