UNBELIEF
[ Also see Agnosticism Atheism Belief Cynics Disbelief Distrust Doubt Incredulity Infidelity Skepticism Suspicion Uncertainty ]

It is no advantage to be near the light if the eyes are closed.
      - Saint Aurelius Augustine (Augustine of Hippo)

Doubt that creed which you cannot reduce to practice.
      - Hosea Ballou

At the conscious approach of death, faith in the biblical religion, with its God and Christ and written revelation, never weakens, but almost or quite always strengthens, and very often advances to a splendid assurance; while unbelief under the same circumstances never strengthens, but almost or quite always weakens and falters, and very often fails utterly.
      - Enoch Fitch Burr

I know of no condition worse than that of the man who has little or no light on the supreme religious questions, and who at the same time is making no effort to come to the light.
      - Enoch Fitch Burr

Alas, the fearful unbelief is unbelief in yourself.
      - Thomas Carlyle

The fearful Unbelief is unbelief in yourself.
      - Thomas Carlyle,
        Sartor Resartus--The Everlasting No
         (bk. II, ch. VII)

How deeply rooted must unbelief be in our hearts when we are surprised to find our prayers answered.
      - Augustus William Hare

A refusal to believe that God loves us is the unbelief which destroys the soul.
      - Edward N. Kirk

With most people unbelief in one thing is founded upon blind belief in another.
      - Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

There is no strength in unbelief. Even the unbelief of what is false is no source of might. It is the truth shining from behind that gives the strength to disbelieve.
      - George MacDonald, The Marquis of Lossie
         (ch. XLII)

Surely scripture is right when it makes the sin of sins that unbelief, which is at bottom nothing else than a refusal to take the cup of salvation. Surely no sharper grief can be inflicted upon the Spirit of God than when we leave His gifts neglected and unappropriated.
      - Alexander Maclaren

Unbelief is blind.
      - John Milton, Comus (l. 519)

Men always grow vicious before they become unbelievers.
      - Jonathan Swift

I'm from Missouri; you must show me.
      - Col. Willard Duncan Vandiver,
        see "Literary Digest", Jan. 28, 1922, p. 42, where origin is discussed at length
