#1. My true religion, my simple faith is in love and compassion. There is no need for complicated philosophy, doctrine, or dogma. Our own heart, our own mind, is the temple. The doctrine is compassion. Love for others and respect for their rights and dignity, no matter who or what they are - these are ultimately all we need. - Author: Dalai Lama XIV
Simple Faith quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#2. We black men seem the sole oasis of simple faith and reverence in a dusty desert of dollars and smartness. - Author: W.E.B. Du Bois
Simple Faith quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#3. Yes, this is the logic of the Nation. And it
will never heed the voice of truth and goodness.
It will go on in its ring-dance of moral corruption,
linking steel unto steel, and machine unto
machine; trampling under its tread all the sweet
flowers of simple faith and the living ideals of
man. - Author: Rabindranath Tagore
Simple Faith quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#4. Frequently He "carries" them by giving them a very simple faith, which takes the promise just as it stands, and believingly runs with every trouble straight to Jesus. The simplicity of their faith gives them an unusual degree of confidence, which carries them above the world. - Author: Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Simple Faith quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#5. Well, anyhow, the practical outcome of all these damn democratic ideas, is that men of our quality -- yes, damn it! we have a quality -- excuse themselves from the hard and thankless service they owe -- not to the crowd, Dick, but to the race. (Much good it will do is to shirk like that in the long run.) We will not presume, we say, no. We shrug our shoulders and leave the geese, the hungry sheep, the born followers, call them what you will, to the leaders who haven't our scruples. The poor muts swallow those dead old religions no longer fit for human consumption, and we say 'let 'em.' They devour their silly newspapers. They let themselves be distracted from public affairs by games, by gambling, by shows and coronations and every soft of mass stupidity, while the stars in their courses plot against them. We say nothing. Nothing audible. We mustn't destroy the simple faith that is marching them to disaster. We mustn't question their decisions. That wouldn't be democratic. And then we sit here and say privately that the poor riff-raff are failing to adapt themselves to those terrible new conditions -- as if they had had half a chance of knowing how things stand with them. They are shoved about by patriotisms, by obsolete religious prejudices, by racial delusions, by incomprehensible economic forces. Amid a growth of frightful machinery... - Author: H.G. Wells
Simple Faith quotes by H.G. Wells
#6. I am a Christian according to my conscience in belief,in purpose and wish;Mnot of course by the orthodox standard. But I am content, and have a feeling of trust and safety.
The Machiavellian mind and the merchant mind are at one in their simple faith in the power of segmental division to rule all
in the dichotomy of power and morals and of money and morals. - Author: Marshall McLuhan
Simple Faith quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#7. There are no tricks in plain and simple faith. - Author: William Shakespeare

#8. The simple faith in progress is not a conviction belonging to strength, but one belonging to acquiescence and hence to weakness. - Author: Norbert Wiener
Simple Faith quotes by Norbert Wiener
#9. The lack of brotherhood among believers themselves has paralyzed the church in front of the skepticism and immorality of the world; but when we go back in simple faith to the one great fact of our redemption, we shall be both brought into closer fellowship with each other, and stimulated to more tender regard for the salvation of men. - Author: William Mackergo Taylor
Simple Faith quotes by William Mackergo Taylor
#10. If thou wouldest enjoy the eminent grace of the full assurance of faith, under the blessed Spirit's influence, and assistance, do what the Scripture tells thee, "Give diligence." Take care that thy faith is of the right kind--that it is not a mere belief of doctrine, but a simple faith, depending on Christ, and on Christ alone. - Author: Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Simple Faith quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#11. Kind hearts are more than coronets, And simple faith than Norman blood. - Author: Alfred Lord Tennyson
Simple Faith quotes by Alfred Lord Tennyson
#12. Wintrow's words seemed to echo through his bones. Acceptance of what is. That is the shortest path to peace with yourself. This is wisdom. Does it hurt? Does wisdom hurt? Does peace hurt? Does acceptance hurt? … He could not answer. He was suffused with the boy's simple faith. It rushed through him, warm and reassuring. Of course, he was right. Acceptance. He could not doubt or deny it."
P. 190 Kennit - Author: Robin Hobb
Simple Faith quotes by Robin Hobb
#13. Rich or poor, all come full of devotion and with no inner misgivings to lay their offerings before the gods and to pray for their blessing. Is there any people so uniformly attached to their religion and so obedient to it in their daily life? I have always envied the Tibetans their simple faith, for all my life I have been a seeker. Though I learned, while in Asia, the way to meditate, the final answer to the riddle of life has not been vouchsafed to me. But I have at least learned to contemplate the events of life with tranquility and not let myself be flung to and fro by circumstances in a sea of doubt. - Author: Heinrich Harrer
Simple Faith quotes by Heinrich Harrer
#14. For God to explain a trial would be to destroy its purpose, calling forth simple faith and implicit obedience. - Author: Alfred Edersheim
Simple Faith quotes by Alfred Edersheim

Simple Faith quotes by Vance Havner

Simple Faith quotes by James H. Cone
#17. I am profoundly grateful that all of my life I have had a simple faith that Jesus is the Christ. That witness has been confirmed to me hundreds of times. It is the crowning knowledge of my soul. It is the spiritual light of my being. It is the cornerstone of my life. - Author: James E. Faust
Simple Faith quotes by James E. Faust
#18. To make a lasting impact on the world's system, one must be distinct from it, not identical to it. - Author: Charles Swindoll
Simple Faith quotes by Charles Swindoll

Simple Faith quotes by Smith Wigglesworth
#20. Do not distress yourself on account of any distaste or dryness you experience in God's service. He wills that you should serve Him fervently and constantly it is true, but without any other help than simple faith, and thus your love will be more disinterested, and your service the more pleasing to Him. - Author: Margaret Mary Alacoque
Simple Faith quotes by Margaret Mary Alacoque
#21. It is essential that in a society, divine thoughts and power should co-exist. Simple Faith, not backed by material forces, is weak and Strength without touch of Divinity is monstrous. - Author: Pandurang Shastri Athavale
Simple Faith quotes by Pandurang Shastri Athavale
#22. In the end, the final justification of the materialist is not reason, as he so fondly thinks, but mere belief. For it is only by an act of simple faith that he accepts the testimony of sense-experience. - Author: Brunton,, Paul
Simple Faith quotes by Brunton,, Paul
#23. When love begins to sicken and decay
It useth an enforced ceremony.
There are no tricks in plain and simple faith:
But hollow men, like horses hot at hand,
Make gallant show, and promise of their mettle. - Author: William Shakespeare
Simple Faith quotes by William Shakespeare
#24. For a long while, he sat on the steps and sharpened the chain-saw blade with a round file, dipping it in bar-and-chain oil and raking it over each tooth with sleek, grating sounds. He lost himself in the rhythm of the labor. A victory over tears is a small thing, but it was his. The sky went from indigo to blackness, and he saw nothing ominous in it, nothing but cold stars wheeling in their course, a course determined by the same firm hand he hoped was guiding his own. But satellites, too, crossed the sky in sly, winking arcs. Sull knew that. He could not let himself be confounded. He went inside, to sleep beside his wife. - Author: Matthew Neill Null
Simple Faith quotes by Matthew Neill Null
#25. Then every man would be as a god, you see. The result of this, of course, would be that there would no longer be any gods, only men. We would give them knowledge of the sciences and the arts, which we possess, and in so doing we would destroy their simple faith and remove all basis for their hoping that things will be better - for the best way to destroy faith or hope is to let it be realized. - Author: Roger Zelazny
Simple Faith quotes by Roger Zelazny
#26. Part of the exquisite beauty of salvation is its simplicity. Any man, woman, or child can come to Christ with absolutely nothing to offer Him but simple faith - just as they are. Salvation requires nothing more than childlike faith - believing that Jesus Christ died for my sins and accepting His gift of salvation. - Author: Beth Moore
Simple Faith quotes by Beth Moore
#27. She knew this music
knew it down to the very core of her being
but she had never heard it before. Unfamiliar, it had still always been there inside her, waiting to be woken. It grew from the core of mystery that gives a secret its special delight, religion its awe. It demanded to be accepted by simple faith, not dissected or questioned, and at the same time, it begged to be doubted and probed. - Author: Charles De Lint
Simple Faith quotes by Charles De Lint
#28. Humility cannot exist without love, and love cannot exist without humility. It is impossible for these virtues to exist except where there is great detachment from all created things. - Author: Teresa Of Avila
Simple Faith quotes by Teresa Of Avila
#29. Burn God's words into your heart, His thoughts into your mind and His ways into your actions; and you'll have a Spirit-filled life. - Author: Alisa Hope Wagner
Simple Faith quotes by Alisa Hope Wagner
#30. The measure of space & time creates an echo of haunting distance between us, yet we are close, we are united in the love we forge together. - Author: Truth Devour
Simple Faith quotes by Truth Devour
#31. Don't you believe in flying saucers, they ask me? Don't you believe in telepathy? - in ancient astronauts? - in the Bermuda triangle? - in life after death?
No, I reply. No, no, no, no, and again no.
One person recently, goaded into desperation by the litany of unrelieved negation, burst out "Don't you believe in anything?"
Yes", I said. "I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement, and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers. I'll believe anything, no matter how wild and ridiculous, if there is evidence for it. The wilder and more ridiculous something is, however, the firmer and more solid the evidence will have to be. - Author: Isaac Asimov
Simple Faith quotes by Isaac Asimov
#32. I think it's worth trying to do something about obvious sources of stress in your life. But even more important is learning and practicing methods to neutralize the harmful effects of stress on the body and mind. There are many possibilities, anything from meditation and yoga to listening to relaxing music. My personal favorite is simple breathing techniques - they're very effective, take very little time, and they're free. - Author: Andrew Weil
Simple Faith quotes by Andrew Weil
#33. Perchance you who pronounce my sentence are in greater fear than I who receive it. - Author: Giordano Bruno
Simple Faith quotes by Giordano Bruno
#34. The moral of this story is simple. Some moms are equipped by the hand of God to be "that mom." They have been formed with the three-C gene - Cooking, Crafting, and Cleaning come easily and naturally to them. Others of us have been delightfully chosen to provide the comic relief necessary to keep this world entertained. And to keep future therapists in business. - Author: Lysa TerKeurst
Simple Faith quotes by Lysa TerKeurst
#35. I talk a lot about strength, faith and love, but I don't ever talk about the fact that I am one of the most sensitive people in my family. That might be the most shocking, because you always see me fighting the good fight, with the strong face on, but I am the most emotional. - Author: Monica
Simple Faith quotes by Monica
#36. A ray of light illuminates any darkness. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Simple Faith quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#37. To all the ships at sea, and all the ports of call. To my family and to all friends and strangers. This is a message, and a prayer. The message is that my travels taught me a great truth. I already had what everyone is searching for and few ever find. The one person in the world who I was born to love forever. A person, like me, of the outer banks and the blue Atlantic mystery. A person rich in simple treasures. Self-made. Self-taught. A harbor where I am forever home. And no wind, or trouble or even a little death can knock down this house. The prayer is that everyone in the world can know this kind of love and be healed by it. If my prayer is heard, there will be an erasing of all guilt and all regret and an end to all anger. Please, God. Amen. - Author: Nicholas Sparks
Simple Faith quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#38. It's such a simple torture – the silent treatment. As basic as tripping someone over or pulling their chair out before they sit down. And yet it's so very effective. When someone has the willpower to pretend you're not there, it nullifies you. How do you fight against that humiliation? - Author: Holly Bourne
Simple Faith quotes by Holly Bourne
#39. Happiness, to me, is something simple. I think of something I would like doing and I do it. - Author: Marty Rubin
Simple Faith quotes by Marty Rubin
#40. Though my books are written from a historical perspective, I have goon so far back that I am in the realm of prehistorical speculation rather than simple historical fact to weave my stories around. - Author: Jean M. Auel
Simple Faith quotes by Jean M. Auel
#41. Oh I don't wanna grow up, wish I'd never grown up
It could still be simple. - Author: Taylor Swift
Simple Faith quotes by Taylor Swift
#42. Dogs are masters of creating emotionally safe space just by being themselves. ... it is as if something deep within our souls resonates with their energy, their unwavering unconditional love and unbridled joy to be in our presence, their undivided loyalty, and complete trust in us. Dogs make us feel special, and teach us by example to relish simple pleasures and live totally in the moment. They teach us there is only now and only who you are, who you are with, and what you are doing right then–and
what could be better than to sniff the wind and be in the company of those you love? - Author: Val Silver
Simple Faith quotes by Val Silver
#43. For you, o broker, there is no other principle but arithmetic. For me, commerce is of trivial import; love, faith, truth of character, the aspiration of man, these are sacred; nor can I detach one duty, like you, from all other duties, and concentrate my forces mechanically on the payment of moneys. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Simple Faith quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#44. My faith in the people governing is, on the whole, infinitesimal; my faith in the people governed is, on the whole, illimitable. - Author: Charles Dickens
Simple Faith quotes by Charles Dickens

Simple Faith quotes by David Harsanyi
#46. Seek by reading and you will find by meditating. Knock by praying, and it will be opened to you in contemplation. - Author: John Of The Cross
Simple Faith quotes by John Of The Cross
#47. The beautiful wooden board on a stand in my father's study. The gleaming ivory pieces. The stern king. The haughty queen. The noble knight. The pious bishop. And the game itself, the way each piece contributed its individual power to the whole. It was simple. It was complex. It was savage; it was elegant. It was a dance; it was a war. It was finite and eternal. It was life. - Author: Rick Yancey
Simple Faith quotes by Rick Yancey
#48. Like a fountain of refreshing water in the dusty, dry desert streets, a heart God fills with His love ministers life and health. - Author: Elizabeth George
Simple Faith quotes by Elizabeth George

Simple Faith quotes by Ed Parrish III

Simple Faith quotes by T. B. Joshua
#51. Our capacity for fulfillment can come only through faith and feelings. But our capacity for survival must come from reason and knowledge. - Author: Heinz Pagels
Simple Faith quotes by Heinz Pagels
#52. People today are used to seeing not only the incredible but the impossible as well, all provided by the mega-pixel. We witness miracles and dismiss them as diversions. The line between reality and fantasy has been blurred to the point that we no longer know what it is we see, and so put little faith in the experience. And there is no darkness anymore, no place for things like mystery and magic to make their abode. There is nothing nowadays that is not exposed, caught on camera and pixilated to be stored and classified forever in some phantom zone called cyber space. Nothing is too small to remain unseen by our microscopes or too far away to be seen by our satellites. The world is a strumpet, every inch of her exposed and explored. Whether she is thrusting herself into the camera's gaze, or we as voyeurs intrude upon her most intimate moments, nothing is left to the imagination. The world today is all light and no darkness. But too much light can blind. An excess of it deprives our eyes from the necessary contrast required to give definition to what we see. The light precludes magic, gives us explanations in its place. It denies love and informs us of the chemicals in the brain that are active given certain conditions. We have gained knowledge but in the process we have been forced to surrender the very reasons we sought knowledge in the first place. - Author: James Rozoff
Simple Faith quotes by James Rozoff
#53. Let the things that happen on the stage be just as complex and yet just as simple as they are in life. For instance, people are having a meal, just having a meal, but at the same time their happiness is being created, or their lives are being smashed up. - Author: Anton Chekhov
Simple Faith quotes by Anton Chekhov
#54. Life is simple; it's just not easy. - Author: Steve Maraboli
Simple Faith quotes by Steve Maraboli
#55. Knowing the truth is never about faith. It is about remembering, accepting, and, most importantly, it is about living. If we live as if we know there is more, then there will be more. - Author: Brandt Legg
Simple Faith quotes by Brandt Legg
#56. That deep emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God. - Author: Albert Einstein
Simple Faith quotes by Albert Einstein
#57. I wanted her to have the full, long life that every parent promises his or her child by the simple act of bringing that child into the world. - Author: Cristina Henriquez
Simple Faith quotes by Cristina Henriquez
#58. Faith does not protect you. Medicine and airbags ... Those are the things that protect you. God does not protect you. Intelligence protects you. Enlightenment. Put your faith in something with tangible results. How long has it been since someone walked on water? Modern miracles belong to science.. Computers, vaccines, space stations ... Even the devine miracle of creation. Matter from nothing ... In a lab. Who needs God? No! Science is God! - Author: Dan Brown
Simple Faith quotes by Dan Brown
#59. If you aren't passionate about a vision, it's hard to have faith in it. - Author: Russell Simmons
