Life grows darker as we go on, till only one pure light is left shining on it; and that is faith. Old age, like solitude and sorrow, has its revelations.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

The inventory of my faith for this lower world is soon made out. I believe in Him who made it.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

A maxim in law has more weight in the world than an article of faith.
      - Jonathan Swift

Faith converses with the angels, and antedates the hymns of glory.
      - Jeremy Taylor

Faith and unfaith can ne'er be equal powers;
  Unfaith is aught is want of faith in all.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson,
        Idylls of the King--Merlin and Vivien
         (l. 388)

Whose faith has centre everywhere,
  Nor cares to fix itself to form.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam (XXXIII)

Faith is the force of life.
      - Leo Tolstoy (Count Lev Tolstoi)

It was Lazarus' faith, not his poverty, which brought him into Abraham's bosom.
      - Archbishop Richard Chenevix Trench

Not prayer without faith, nor faith without prayer, but prayer in faith, is the cost of spiritual gifts and graces.
      - Henry Clay Trumbull

Faith may rise into miracles of might, as some few wise men have shown; faith may sink into credulities of weakness, as the mass of fools have witnessed.
      - Martin Farquhar Tupper

Lay not the plummet to the line; religion hath no landmarks; no human keenness can discern the subtle shades of faith.
      - Martin Farquhar Tupper

Faith is not the lazy notion that a man may with careless confidence throw his burden upon the Saviour and trouble himself no further, a pillow upon which he lulls his conscience to sleep, till he drops into perdition; but a living and vigorous principle, working by love, and inseparably connected with true repentance as its motive and with holy obedience as its fruits.
      - Unknown

Fear knocked at the door.
  Faith answered.
    No one was there.
      - Unknown

What we believe, we must believe wholly and without reserve; wherefore the only perfect and satisfying object of faith is God. A faith that sets bounds to itself, that will believe so much and no more, that will trust thus far and no farther, is none.
      - Unknown

Faith is the revealer of knowledge; it is the office of reason to defend that knowledge and to preserve it pure. Independent knowledge--the knowledge that comes not through faith--whether it be of things earthly or things heavenly, never can be ours.
      - Unknown, Sunday School Times

He left a load of anthracite\In front of a poor woman's door.
  When the deep snow, frozen and white,\Wrapped street and square, mountain and moor,\That was his deed.\He did it well.\"What was his creed?"\I cannot tell.
    Blessed "in his basket and his store,"\In sitting down and rising up;\When more he got, he gave the more,\Withholding not the crust and cup.\He took the lead\In each good task.\"What was his creed?"\I did not ask.
      His charity was like the snow,\Soft, white, and silent in its fall;\Not like the noisy winds that blow\From shivering trees the leaves,--a pall\For flowers and weed,\Drooping below.\"What was his creed?"\The poor may know.
        He had great faith in loaves of bread\For hungry people, young and old,\Hope he inspired; kind words he said\To those he sheltered from the cold.\For we should feed\As well as pray.\ "What was his creed?"\He told not me.
          In words he did not put his trust;\His faith in words he never writ;\He loved to share his cup and crust\With all mankind who needed it.\In time of need\A friend was he.\"What was his creed?" \He told not me.
            He put his trust in heaven, and he\Worked well with hand and head;\And what he gave in charity\Sweetened his sleep and daily bread.\Let us take heed,\For life is brief.\What was his creed--\ What his belief?
      - Unknown, What Was His Creed?

Faith is deferential incredulity.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)

Systems exercise the mind; but faith enlightens and guides it.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)

This is faith: it is nothing more than obedience.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)

That faith which is required of us is then perfect when it produces in us a fiduciary assent to whatever the Gospel has revealed.
      - William Wake

Deep faith eliminates fear.
      - Lech Walesa

Faith, though it hath sometimes a trembling hand, it must not have a withered hand, but must stretch.
      - Sir William Watson (2)

Faith, mighty faith, the promise sees,
  And looks to that alone;
    Laughs at impossibilities,
      And cries, "It shall be done!"
      - Charles Wesley (1), Hymns (no. 360)

As the flower is before the fruit, so is faith before good works.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

Those who have obtained the farthest insight into Nature have been, in all ages, firm believers in God.
      - William Whewell
