The only faith that wears well and holds its color in all weathers is that which is woven of conviction and set with the sharp mordant of experience.
James Russell Lowell
The power of faith will often shine forth the most when the character is naturally weak.
That deep emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.
The faith that stands on authority is not faith.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Faith is spiritualized imagination.
Henry Ward Beecher
