#1. Happiness is a state of the soul; a state in which our natures are full of the wine of an ancient youth, in which banquets last for ever, and roads lead everywhere, where all things are under the exuberant leadership of faith, hope, and charity. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#2. Have faith, hope, and charity, that's the way to live successfully. - Author: Don Cornell
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Don Cornell
#3. But now the emphasis has shifted to making it. People have surrendered their personal moral objectives to government or schools or psychologists. It's a change that accelerated with the boom after the war ... There has been a surrender to pragmatism; the true is what makes you successful and the false is what makes you fail. But I wonder what happens to faith, hope and charity in such a situation? People began to form their moral ideas not in the old way but by their professions and guilds; that tends to transfer sin to the corporation. - Author: Saul Bellow
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Saul Bellow
#4. ...Alas, Babylon was to be among the first to give a public voice to the fears and anxieties associated with a nuclear attack and with threats of atomic radiation. And unlike others in the genre, he offered unmitigated hope. Randy Bragg and company not only survive the devastation that leaves vast Contaminated Zones throughout the United States, but they also apply the best in themselves to begin the re-establishment of life within a civil society. All of the atomic fears of the 1950s (and later) are there, but Frank's 'message' seems to be that we can survive even the worst catastrophe with everyday, secularized applications of faith, hope, and charity. - Author: Hal Hager
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Hal Hager
#5. If I have read religious history aright, faith, hope, and charity have not always been found in a direct ratio with a sensibility to the three concords; and it is possible, thank heaven! to have very erroneous theories and very sublime feelings. - Author: George Eliot
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by George Eliot
#6. Still - if I have read religious history aright - faith, hope, and charity have not always been found in a direct ratio with a sensibility to the three concords, and it is possible - thank Heaven! - to have very erroneous theories and very sublime feelings. The raw bacon which clumsy Molly spares from her own scanty store that she may carry it to her neighbour's child to "stop the fits," may be a piteously inefficacious remedy; but the generous stirring of neighbourly kindness that prompted the deed has a beneficent radiation that is not lost. - Author: George Eliot
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by George Eliot
#7. It is natural to speak of hymns as "poems," indiscriminately, for they have the same structure. But a hymn is not necessarily a poem, while a poem that can be sung as a hymn is something more than a poem. Imagination makes poems; devotion makes hymns. There can be poetry without emotion, but a hymn never. A poem may argue; a hymn must not. In short to be a hymn, what is written must express spiritual feelings and desires. The music of faith, hope and charity will be somewhere in its strain. - Author: Hezekiah Butterworth
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Hezekiah Butterworth
#8. This was part of the divine comedy-God's sense of humor undergirding the inner workings of the universe. Sinners participated in the redemption of other sinners; faith, hope and charity triumphed over disbelief, despair, and hatred, while the One who called all creatures to Himself watched and smiled. - Author: Sylvain Reynard
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Sylvain Reynard
#9. In faith and hope the world will disagree, but all mankind's concern is charity. - Author: Alexander Pope
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Alexander Pope
#10. Faith, hope and charity go together. Hope is practised through the virtue of patience, which continues to do good even in the face of apparent failure, and through the virtue of humility, which accepts God's mystery and trusts him even at times of darkness. Faith tells us that God has given his Son for our sakes and gives us the victorious certainty that it is really true: God is love! It thus transforms our impatience and our doubts into the sure hope that God holds the world in his hands and that, as the dramatic imagery of the end of the Book of Revelation points out, in spite of all darkness he ultimately triumphs in glory. Faith, which sees the love of God revealed in the pierced heart of Jesus on the Cross, gives rise to love. Love is the light - and in the end, the only light - that can always illuminate a world grown dim and give us the courage needed to keep living and working. Love is possible, and we are able to practise it because we are created in the image of God. To experience love and in this way to cause the light of God to enter into the world - this is the invitation I would like to extend with the present Encyclical. - Author: Benedict XVI
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Benedict XVI
#11. No circumstance in the world can ever prevent us from believing in God, from placing all our trust in him, from loving him with our whole heart, or from loving our neighbor. Faith, hope, and charity are absolutely free, because if they are rooted in us deeply enough, they are able to draw strength from whatever opposes them! If someone sought to prevent us from believing by persecuting us, we always would retain the option of forgiving our enemies and transforming the situation of oppression into one of greater love. If someone tried to silence our faith by killing us, our deaths would be the best possible proclamation of our faith! Love, and only love, can overcome evil by good and draw good out of evil. - Author: Jacques Philippe
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Jacques Philippe
#12. Love, like the opening of the heavens to the saints, shows for a moment, even to the dullest person, the possibilities of the human race. One has faith, hope, and charity for another being, perhaps but the creation of the imagination; still it is a great advance for a person to be profoundly loving, even in his or her imagination. - Author: Arthur Helps
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Arthur Helps
#13. I had made my fortune by being able to spot a certain kind of man. The kind who never asked you for faith, hope and charity, but offered you facts, proof and profit. - Author: Ayn Rand
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Ayn Rand
#14. That was probably how religion worked. The triumph of loneliness over intelligence. And why not? Why shouldn't religion be exactly the same as everything else? Faith, hope and charity: as relevant as serving suggestions. - Author: Janice Galloway
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Janice Galloway
#15. Whoever, therefore, thinks that he understands the divine scriptures or any part of them so that it does not build on the double love of God and of our neighbor does not understand it at all. Thus a man supported by faith, hope, and charity, with an unshaken hold upon them does not need the scriptures ... And many live by these three things in solitude without books. - Author: Saint Augustine
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Saint Augustine
#16. We do not see faith, hope, and charity as unattainable ideals, but we use them as stout supports of a nation fighting the fight for freedom in a modern civilization. - Author: Franklin D. Roosevelt
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#17. The minister's voice was a pendulum. Swinging for left and down and right and down and left and-"How can you claim to be my brother, and hate me? Is that Charity? How can you claim to be my sister and despise me? Is that supposed to be Charity? How can you claim to be my friend and misuse and wrongfully abuse me? Is that Charity?...'now abideth faith, hope and charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. - Author: Maya Angelou
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Maya Angelou
#18. Be strong and courageous! - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#19. In the midst of our struggle to find out who we are, there are infinite possibilities for beauty, and hope, and wonder, and love. - Author: Mandy Hale
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Mandy Hale
#20. Rise flexibly, courageously and perseveringly upon the challenges and trials in our life. Beneath the depth of fresh wounds, heavy cross and years of scars, is our wise silent mind, a beating faithful heart with understanding and patience matched with a humble soul who walks with hope towards charity, kindness, peace and harmony. - Author: Angelica Hopes
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Angelica Hopes
#21. Your words and deeds are seeds, scattered in the wind ... the seeds are light or darkness ... they'll break apart or mend ... Sow light instead of gloom. Sow faith instead of doubt. Sow truth and love, and hope, and peace. Sow light and darkness rout. - Author: Colleen Luntzel
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Colleen Luntzel
#22. Do you remember, Meir, that epigram quoted in the name of Rabbi Johanan ben Zaccai: 'There is no truth unless there be a faith on which it may rest'? Ironically enough the only sure principle I have achieved is this which I have known almost all my life. And it is so. For all truths rest ultimately on some act of faith, geometry on axioms, the sciences on the assumptions of the objective existence and orderliness of the world of nature. In every realm one must lay down postulates or he shall have nothing at all. So with morality and religion. Faith and reason are not antagonists. On the contrary, salvation is through the commingling of the two, the former to establish first premises, the latter to purify them of confusion and to draw the fullness of their implications. It is not certainty which one acquires so, only plausibility, but that is the best we can hope for. - Author: Milton Steinberg
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Milton Steinberg
#23. In the mid-thirties, a young black poet named Langston Hughes wrote a poem, "Let America Be America Again":

. . . I am the poor white, fooled and pushed apart,
I am the Negro bearing slavery's scars.
I am the red man driven from the land,
I am the immigrant clutching the hope I seek-
And finding only the same old stupid plan.
Of dog eat dog, of mighty crush the weak. . . .

O, let America be America again-
The land that never has been yet-
And yet must be-the land where every man is free.
The land that's mine-the poor man's, Indian's, Negro's
ME-
Who made America,
Whose sweat and blood, whose faith and pain,
Whose hand at the foundry, whose plow in the rain,
Must bring back our mighty dream again.

Sure call me any ugly name you choose-
The steel of freedom does not stain.
From those who live like leeches on the people's lives,
We must take back our land again,
America! . . . - Author: Howard Zinn
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Howard Zinn
#24. Sometimes words just arent enough.
Sometimes it's easier to magically lose yourself in the memories long past, the ones you so selfishly took for granted.
And sadly sometimes that's the only way to keep those people in your life- recapturing their glorious light before they fade. And inevitably their memory along with them. - Author: Kendal Rob
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Kendal Rob
#25. The miracle that saves the world, the realm of human affairs, from its normal, 'natural' ruin is ultimately the fact of natality, in which the faculty of action is ontologically rooted. It is, in other words, the birth of new [people] and the new beginning, the action they are capable of by virtue of being born. Only the full experience of this capacity can bestow upon human affairs faith and hope. - Author: Hannah Arendt
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Hannah Arendt
#26. Thoughtful men, with hearts craving the truth, have come to seek in the Catholic Church the road which leads with surety to eternal life. They have understood that they could not cleave to Jesus Christ as the Head of the Church if they did not belong to the Body of Jesus Christ which is the Church. Nor could they ever hope to possess in all its purity the faith of Jesus Christ if they were to reject its legitimate teaching authority entrusted to Peter and his successors. - Author: Pope Leo XIII
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Pope Leo XIII
#27. "How can you see Christ in people?" And we only say: It is an act of faith, constantly repeated. It is an act of love, resulting from an act of faith. It is an act of hope, that we can awaken these same acts in their hearts, too, with the help of God ... - Author: Dorothy Day
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Dorothy Day
#28. I know that a stranger's hand will write to me next, to say that the good and faithful servant has been called at length into the joy of his Lord. And why weep for this? No fear of death will darken St. John's last hour: his mind will be unclouded; his heart will be undaunted; his hope will be sure; his faith steadfast. His own words are a pledge of this: "My Master," he says, "has forewarned me. Daily he announces more distinctly, 'Surely I come quickly!' and hourly I more eagerly respond, 'Amen; even so come, Lord Jesus! - Author: Charlotte Bronte
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#29. Where humanity sowed faith, hope, and unity, joy's garden blossomed. - Author: Aberjhani
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Aberjhani
#30. Nothing has given me more hope recently than to observe how simple conversations give birth to actions that can change lives and restore our faith in the future. There is no more powerful way to initiate significant social change than to start a conversation. When a group of people discover that they share a common concern, that's when the process of change begins. - Author: Margaret J. Wheatley
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Margaret J. Wheatley
#31. The seasons of my heart change like the seasons of the fields. There are seasons of wonder and hope, seasons of suffering and love, seasons of healing. There are seasons of dying and rising, seasons of faith. - Author: Macrina Wiederkehr
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Macrina Wiederkehr
#32. The greatest faith is born in the hour of despair. When we can see no hope and no way out, then faith rises and brings the victory. - Author: Lee Roberson
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Lee Roberson
#33. Marriage means handing over yourself, your body, your future, your keeping to the one whom you dearly love, although this person may, in many ways, remain a stranger. This tremendous act of faith is something that can unlock in each lover powers of compassion, generosity, joy, passion, fidelity and hope that no one guessed was even there. That is why the confidence of young lovers is not foolish or arrogant, but an expression of a basic fact in human experience that the greatest of human gifts are set to work only when people are prepared to risk everything and first you risk it before God. - Author: Ravi Zacharias
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Ravi Zacharias
#34. all we have is faith and hope and you just have to trust it. - Author: S.D. Hendrickson
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by S.D. Hendrickson
#35. Pastor Smith did not have the religious constitution needed to provide salvation for any of us who'd had a hand in this tragic event. We had put on the armour of God, and there was no undoing what we had done. My faith, my belief in myself as a good citizen, everything I had thought was truth was scattered to the wind, and no one on this earth could put that to rights. Things weren't as simple as living and dying. I understood that now. - Author: Cheryl R Cowtan
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Cheryl R Cowtan
#36. I would rather marry a good man, a man of mind, with a hope and bright prospects ahead for position, fame and power than to marry all the houses, gold and bones in the world. - Author: Mary Todd Lincoln
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Mary Todd Lincoln
#37. Ministers should be Bible students. They should thoroughly furnish themselves with the evidences of our faith and hope, and then, with full control of the voice and their feelings, present these evidences in such a manner that the people can calmly weigh them, and decide upon the evidences presented. - Author: Ellen G. White
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Ellen G. White
#38. God loves you and created you in His own image. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#39. Feelings, rationale and values are the top qualities that make a person exceedingly human. - Author: Janvier Chouteu-Chando
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
#40. You will be tempted to lose hope, but always remember that God is with you and if there seems to be no hope, He is your hope. - Author: Therese May
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Therese May
#41. Encounter Jesus. Suffer with him to experience his life more fully. Be holy in your love for God and his church as God is holy in his love for you and his church. Imagine what awaits those who now walk by faith, when faith and hope give way to the fullness of love when Jesus appears, when faith becomes sight at the consummation of Jesus' union with his people at the marriage supper of the Lamb. - Author: Paul Louis Metzger
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Paul Louis Metzger
#42. The essence of Christian faith has come to us in story form, the story of a God who will go to any lengths to get his family back. The Bible tells of flawed people
people just like me
who make shockingly bad choices and yet still find themselves pursued by God. As they receive grace and forgiveness, naturally they want to give it to others, and a thread of hope and transformation weaves its way throughout the Bible's accounts. - Author: Philip Yancey
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Philip Yancey
#43. Is it folly to believe in something that is intangible? After all, some of the greatest intangibles are Love, Hope, and Wonder.
Another is Deity.
The choice to be a fool is yours. - Author: Vera Nazarian
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Vera Nazarian
#44. A true Christian is made by faith and love toward Christ. Our sins do not in the least hinder our Christianity, according to the word of the Savior Himself. He deigned to say: not the righteous have I come to call, but sinners to salvation; there is more joy in heaven over one who repents than over ninety righteous ones. Likewise concerning the sinful woman who touched His feet, He deigned to say to the Pharisee Simon: to one who has love, a great debt is forgiven, but from one who has no love, even a small debt will be demanded. From these judgments a Christian should bring himself to hope and joy, and not in the least accept an inflicted despair. Here one needs the shield of faith. - Author: Letters Of St. Herman Of Alaska
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Letters Of St. Herman Of Alaska
#45. When the Lord instills hope and faith and peace and assurance in people, they can bring great things to pass. This, then, is often what we should look for when we ask for help-not a miracle to solve our problem for us, but a miracle inside, to help us come to the solution ourselves, with the Lord's help and the Lord's power. - Author: Gene R. Cook
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Gene R. Cook
#46. Live within and without your core of being. - Author: Truth Devour
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Truth Devour
#47. I have this one little life to live with, it's not the plan I had in mind but I can accept its the calling of my soul. The irony in gaining freedom through the heartbreak of stillness. - Author: Nikki Rowe
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Nikki Rowe
#48. I am raising my children with the Christian faith and life lessons I was taught. I am equipping them with all of the information and guidance as a parent and hope they will make sound decisions. The most important thing is to teach kids to stand firm in what they believe and not be swayed by detractors no matter what the subject matter. - Author: Gretchen Carlson
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Gretchen Carlson
#49. Our hope concerning the future is great, and our faith is strong. We know we've scarcely scratched the surface of that which will come to pass in the years that lie ahead. - Author: Gordon B. Hinckley
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#50. God does not mean for us to be passive. He means for us to fight the fight of faith--the fight for joy. And the central strategy is to preach the gospel to yourself. This is war. Satan is preaching for sure. If we remain passive, we surrender the field to him. So Lloyd-Jones gets specific and gets tough:
The main art in the matter of spiritual living is to know how to handle yourself. You have to take yourself in hand, you have to address yourself, preach to yourself, question yourself... You must turn on yourself, upbraid yourself, condemn yourself, exhort yourself, and say to yourself: "Hope thou in God"--instead of muttering in this depressed, unhappy way, and then you must go on to remind yourself of God, who God is, and... what God has done, and what God has pledged himself to do. Then having done that, end on this great note: defy yourself, and defy other people, and defy the devil and the whole world, and say with this man: "I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance, who is also the help of my countenance and my God." [from Psalm 42:5]
Of course, the "self" is not the only one who talks to us in our head. So does the devil, and so do other people as we replay their comments in our memories. Therefore, when Lloyd-Jones tells us to preach to ourselves, he knows we must be addressing all these joy-killing messages. That's why he talks about defying self, Satan and other people. When we preach the gospel to ourselves, we are addressing every word of - Author: John Piper
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by John Piper
#51. Faith is a kind of knowing; it is different from hope. My faith is that life is purposeful; of that I'm sure. There is a God, there is intelligence, there is consciousness. And behind all of this, there is incredible compassion. - Author: John Denver
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by John Denver
#52. Jesus Christ is three in one: the way, the truth, and the life. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#53. Let go and let God. Don't dwell on your past mistakes. When you do that, your past keeps you from moving forward. The wonder of the Atonement is that you don't have to be the same person you were yesterday, last year or even a minute ago. Through Christ, and through the power of repentance, you are continually being reborn. - Author: Toni Sorenson
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Toni Sorenson
#54. The United States remains the last best hope for a mankind plagued by tyranny and deprivation. America is no stronger than its people
and that means you and me. Well, I believe in you, and I believe that if we work together, then one day we will say, "We fought the good fight. We finished the race. We kept the faith." And to our children and our children's children, we can say, "We did all what could be done in the brief time that was given us here on earth.". - Author: Ronald Reagan
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Ronald Reagan
#55. This ancient affirmation of Scripture and the Christian tradition provides a teleological hope and direction that gives meaning to life now and moves us toward the future with faith and confidence in God's redemptive purpose and power. - Author: Cynthia Peters Anderson
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Cynthia Peters Anderson
#56. I have seen times of plentiful and times of scarcity. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Faith Hope And Charity quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
