Faith is the continuation of reason.
      - William Adams

Our Lord does not praise the centurion for his amiable care of his servants, nor for his generosity to the Jews, nor for his public spirit, nor for his humility, but for his faith.
      - William Adams

The person who has a firm trust in the Supreme Being is powerful in his power, wise by his wisdom, happy by his happiness.
      - Joseph Addison

Without faith a man can do nothing. But faith can stifle all science.
      - Henri-Frederic Amiel

A firm faith is the best theology; a good life is the best philosophy; a clear conscience the best law; honesty, the best policy, and temperance the best physic.
      - James H. Aughey

As a weak limb grows stronger by exercise, so will your faith be strengthened by the very efforts you make in stretching it out toward things unseen.
      - James H. Aughey

Faith without evidence is, properly, not faith, but prejudice or presumption; faith beyond evidence is superstition, and faith contrary to evidence is either insanity or willful perversity of mind.
      - James H. Aughey

Were it not for an unquestioning faith, human progress would be an intolerable burden.
      - James H. Aughey

Youth, beauty, wit may recommend you to men, but only faith in Jesus Christ can recommend you to God.
      - James H. Aughey

Faith is to believe what we do not see; and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe.
      - Saint Aurelius Augustine (Augustine of Hippo)

Mahomet made the people believe that he would call a hill to him, and from the top of it offer up his prayers for the observers of his law. The people assembled; Mahomet called the hill to come to him, again and again, and when the hill stood still, he was never a whit abashed, but said, "If the hill will not come to Mahomet, Mahomet will go to the hill."
      - Francis Bacon, Essays--Of Boldness

True faith nor biddeth nor abideth form,
  The bended knee, the eye uplift; is all
    Which men need render; all which God can bear.
      What to the faith are forms? A passing speck,
        A crow upon the sky.
      - Philip James Bailey

Faith is a higher faculty than reason.
      - Philip James Bailey, Festus--Proem (l. 84)

Faith, in order to be genuine and of any real value, must be the offspring of that divine love which Jesus manifested when He prayed for His enemies on the cross.
      - Hosea Ballou

There is one inevitable criterion of judgment touching religious faith in doctrinal matters. Can you reduce it to practice? If not, have none of it.
      - Hosea Ballou, Manuscript--Sermons

Faith without works is like a bird without wings; though she may hop with her companions on earth, yet she will never fly with them to heaven; but when both are joined together, then doth the soul mount up to her eternal rest.
      - Francis Beaumont

Faith is nothing but spiritualized imagination.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

The highest order that was ever instituted on earth is the order of faith.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
      - Bible, Hebrews (ch. XI, v. 1)

For we walk by faith, not by sight.
      - Bible, II Corinthians (ch. V, v. 7)

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
  Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
      - Bible, II Timothy (ch. IV, v. 7)

Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.
      - Bible, Job (ch. XIII, v. 15)

Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
      - Bible, Revelation (ch. II, v. 10)

Religion is the true Philosophy!
  Faith is the last great link 'twixt God and man.
