Famous quotes containing the word belief:
“There is not much sense in suffering, since drugs can be given for pain, itching, and other discomforts. The belief has long died that suffering here on earth will be rewarded in heaven. Suffering has lost its meaning.”
—Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (b. 1926)
“We that are bound by vows and by promotion,
With pomp of holy sacrifice and rites,
To teach belief in good and still devotion,
To preach of heavens wonders and delights
Yet, when each of us in his own heart looks,
He finds the God there far unlike his books.”
—Fulke Greville (15541628)
“Religion ... may be defined thus: a belief in, and homage rendered to, existences unseen and causes unknown.”
—Frances Wright (17951852)
