      - John Greenleaf Whittier

Through this dark and stormy night
  Faith beholds a feeble light
    Up the blackness streaking;

        In a patient hope I rest
          For the full day-breaking!
      - John Greenleaf Whittier, Barclay of Ury
         (st. 16)

A bending staff I would not break,
  A feeble faith I would not shake,
    Nor even rashly pluck away
      The error which some truth may stay,
        Whose loss might leave the soul without
          A shield against the shafts of doubt.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier, Questions of Life

Of one in whom persuasion and belief

'Tis hers to pluck the amaranthine flower
  Of Faith, and round the sufferer's temples bind
    Wreathes that endure affliction's heaviest shower,
      And do not shrink from sorrow's keenest wind.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Weak is the Will of Man

Faith is not reason's labor, but repose.

On argument alone my faith is built.

There are no tricks in plain simple faith.-Shakespeare. Faith builds a bridge from this world to the next.

Faith builds a bridge across the gulf of Death,
  To break the shock blind mature cannot shun,
    And lands Thought smoothly on the further shore.
