Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to.

You have to realize it's going to be a long process and that you'll work on things slowly, one at a time. ~Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Therefore, dear Sir, love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you. For those who are near you are far away... and this shows that the space around you is beginning to grow vast.... be happy about your growth, in which of course you can't take anyone with you, and be gentle with those who stay behind; be confident and calm in front of them and don't torment them with your doubts and don't frighten them with your faith or joy, which they wouldn't be able to comprehend. Seek out some simple and true feeling of what you have in common with them, which doesn't necessarily have to alter when you yourself change again and again; when you see them, love life in a form that is not your own and be indulgent toward those who are growing old, who are afraid of the aloneness that you trust.... and don't expect any understanding; but believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it. ~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, yet still we go forward. Because we trust. Because we have Faith. ~Paulo Coelho, Brida

I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to. ~C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

I'm about to make a wild, extreme and severe relationship rule: the word busy is a load of crap and is most often used by assholes. The word "busy" is the relationship Weapon of Mass Destruction. It seems like a good excuse, but in fact in every silo you uncover, all you're going to find is a man who didn't care enough to call. Remember men are never to busy to get what they want. ~Greg Behrendt

I talk to God but the sky is empty. ~Sylvia Plath

Sometimes God allows what he hates to accomplish what he loves. ~Joni Eareckson Tada, The God I Love

A star falls from the sky and into your hands. Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you. And then you have to put it back into the sky. And it's the most painful thing you'll ever have to do and that you've ever done. But what's yours is yours. Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands. And one day, it'll fall from the sky and hit you in the head real hard and that time, you won't have to put it back in the sky again. ~C. JoyBell C.

The reason birds can fly and we can't is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings. ~J.M. Barrie, The Little White Bird

Believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it. ~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

In this hour, I do not believe that any darkness will endure. ~J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

This is what the past is for! Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for the future that only He can see. ~Corrie ten Boom, The Hiding Place

Over the years, I have come to realize that the greatest trap in our life is not success, popularity, or power, but self-rejection. Success, popularity, and power can indeed present a great temptation, but their seductive quality often comes from the way they are part of the much larger temptation to self-rejection. When we have come to believe in the voices that call us worthless and unlovable, then success, popularity, and power are easily perceived as attractive solutions. The real trap, however, is self-rejection. As soon as someone accuses me or criticizes me, as soon as I am rejected, left alone, or abandoned, I find myself thinking, "Well, that proves once again that I am a nobody." ... [My dark side says,] I am no good... I deserve to be pushed aside, forgotten, rejected, and abandoned. Self-rejection is the greatest enemy of the spiritual life because it contradicts the sacred voice that calls us the "Beloved." Being the Beloved constitutes the core truth of our existence. ~Henri J.M. Nouwen

Patience is not the ability to wait. Patience is to be calm no matter what happens, constantly take action to turn it to positive growth opportunities, and have faith to believe that it will all work out in the end while you are waiting. ~Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

Are you upset little friend? Have you been lying awake worrying? Well, don't worry...I'm here. The flood waters will recede, the famine will end, the sun will shine tomorrow, and I will always be here to take care of you. ~Charles M. Schulz

belief is the death of intelligence. ~Robert Anton Wilson, Cosmic Trigger: Die letzten Geheimnisse der Illuminaten oder An den Grenzen des erweiterten Bewusstseins

You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope. ~Thomas Merton

Well, it's true that I have been hurt in my life. Quite a bit. But it's also true that I have loved, and been loved. and that carries a weight of its own. A greater weight, in my opinion. It's like that pie chart we talked about earlier. in the end, I'll look back on my life and see that the greatest piece of it was love. The problems, the divorces, the sadness... those will be there too, but just smaller slivers, tiny pieces. ~Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby

What was love, really? Flowers, chocolate, and poetry? Or was it something else? Was it being able to finish someone's jokes? Was it having absolute faith that someone was there at your back? Was it knowing someone so well that they instantly understood why you did the things you did—and shared those same beliefs? ~Richelle Mead, Last Sacrifice

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. ~Carl Sagan

Now very much against her will, she thought of the way Jace had looked at her then, the blaze of faith in his eyes, his belief in her. He had always thought she was strong. He had showed it in everything he did, in every look and every touch. Simon had faith in her too, yet when he'd held her, it had been as if she were something fragile, something made of delicate glass. But Jace had held her with all the strength he had, never wondering if she could take it--he'd known she was as strong has he was. ~Cassandra Clare, City of Glass

Doubt everything. Find your own light. ~Gautama Buddha

You can never really know someone completely. That’s why it’s the most terrifying thing in the world, really—taking someone on faith, hoping they’ll take you on faith too. It’s such a precarious balance, It’s a wonder we do it at all. And yet.. ~Libba Bray

I dont think that we're meant to understand it all the time. I think that sometimes we just have to have faith. ~Nicholas Sparks, A Walk to Remember

Faith is about doing. You are how you act, not just how you believe. ~Mitch Albom, Have a Little Faith: a True Story

According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don't bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous. (quoted by Carol Lynn Pearson in Consider the Butterfly) ~Deepak Chopra

Some things have to be believed to be seen. ~Madeleine L'Engle

Make a space in your life for the glorious things you deserve. Have faith. ~Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys

Love meant jumping off a cliff and trusting that a certain person would be there to catch you at the bottom. ~Jodi Picoult, Second Glance

To be rejected by someone doesn't mean you should also reject yourself or that you should think of yourself as a lesser person. It doesn't mean that nobody will ever love you anymore. Remember that only ONE person has rejected you at the moment, and it only hurt so much because to you, that person's opinion symbolized the opinion of the whole world, of God. ~Jocelyn Soriano, Mend My Broken Heart

To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don't grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float. ~Alan W. Watts

The Simple Path
Silence is Prayer
Prayer is Faith
Faith is Love
Love is Service
The Fruit of Service is Peace ~Mother Teresa

There comes a time in your life when you have to choose to turn the page, write another book or simply close it. ~Shannon L. Alder

Faith is walking face-first and full-speed into the dark. If we truly knew all the answers in advance as to the meaning of life and the nature of God and the destiny of our souls, our belief would not be a leap of faith and it would not be a courageous act of humanity; it would just be... a prudent insurance policy. ~Elizabeth Gilbert

There are times when solitude is better than society, and silence is wiser than speech. We should be better Christians if we were more alone, waiting upon God, and gathering through meditation on His Word spiritual strength for labour in his service. We ought to muse upon the things of God, because we thus get the real nutriment out of them. . . . Why is it that some Christians, although they hear many sermons, make but slow advances in the divine life? Because they neglect their closets, and do not thoughtfully meditate on God's Word. They love the wheat, but they do not grind it; they would have the corn, but they will not go forth into the fields to gather it; the fruit hangs upon the tree, but they will not pluck it; the water flows at their feet, but they will not stoop to drink it. From such folly deliver us, O Lord. . . . ~Charles Haddon Spurgeon

We are saved by faith alone, but the faith that saves is never alone. ~Martin Luther

When you get to the end of all the light you know and it's time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: either you will be given something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly. ~Edward Teller

The moment God is figured out with nice neat lines and definitions, we are no longer dealing with God. ~Rob Bell, Velvet Elvis: Repainting the Christian Faith

Dance. Smile. Giggle. Marvel. TRUST. HOPE. LOVE. WISH. BELIEVE. Most of all, enjoy every moment of the journey, and appreciate where you are at this moment instead of always focusing on how far you have to go. ~Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

No. Don't give up hope just yet. It's the last thing to go. When you have lost hope, you have lost everything. And when you think all is lost, when all is dire and bleak, there is always hope. ~Pittacus Lore, I Am Number Four

My soul is in the sky. ~William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

The most confused you will ever get is when you try to convince your heart and spirit of something your mind knows is a lie. ~Shannon L. Alder

Yes, I understand why things had to happen this way. I understand his reason for causing me pain. But mere understanding does not chase away the hurt. It does not call upon the sun when dark clouds have loomed over me. Let the rain come then if it must come! And let it wash away the dust that hurt my eyes! ~Jocelyn Soriano, Mend My Broken Heart

Rejection is an opportunity for your selection. ~Bernard Branson

God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches by means of opposites so that you will have two wings to fly, not one ~Rumi, The Essential Rumi

Prejudice, a dirty word, and faith, a clean one, have something in common: they both begin where reason ends. ~Harper Lee, Go Set a Watchman

Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire. ~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

The chief beauty about time
is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied
a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour
if you choose. ~Arnold Bennett

Never lose faith in yourself, and never lose hope; remember, even when this world throws its worst and then turns its back, there is still always hope. ~Pittacus Lore, The Power of Six

You are never dedicated to something you have complete confidence in. No one is fanatically shouting that the sun is going to rise tomorrow. They know it's going to rise tomorrow. When people are fanatically dedicated to political or religious faiths or any other kinds of dogmas or goals, it's always because these dogmas or goals are in doubt. ~Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values

Realize that if a door closed, it’s because what was behind it wasn’t meant for you. ~Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

Faith can be very very dangerous, and deliberately to implant it into the vulnerable mind of an innocent child is a grievous wrong. ~Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

You were born a child of light’s wonderful secret— you return to the beauty you have always been. ~Aberjhani, Visions of a Skylark Dressed in Black

Life is such unutterable hell, solely because it is sometimes beautiful. If we could only be miserable all the time, if there could be no such things as love or beauty or faith or hope, if I could be absolutely certain that my love would never be returned: how much more simple life would be. One could plod through the Siberian salt mines of existence without being bothered about happiness. Unfortunately the happiness is there. There is always the chance (about eight hundred and fifty to one) that another heart will come to mine. I can't help hoping, and keeping faith, and loving beauty. Quite frequently I am not so miserable as it would be wise to be. ~T.H. White, Ghostly, Grim and Gruesome

Have you ever noticed that when your mind is awakened or drawn to someone new, that person's name suddenly pops up everywhere you go? My friend Sophie calls it coincidence, and Mr. Simpless, my parson friend, calls it Grace. He thinks that if one cares deeply about someone or something new one throws a kind of energy out into the world, and "fruitfulness" is drawn in. ~Mary Ann Shaffer, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

It is not the strength of your faith but the object of your faith that actually saves you. ~Timothy J. Keller

If we can just let go and trust that things will work out they way they're supposed to, without trying to control the outcome, then we can begin to enjoy the moment more fully. The joy of the freedom it brings becomes more pleasurable than the experience itself. ~Goldie Hawn

Work without love is slavery. ~Mother Teresa

No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility. All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable, more worthy to be called the children of God . . . and it is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we come here to acquire and which will make us more like our Father and Mother in heaven. ~Orson F. Whitney

Why must people kneel down to pray? If I really wanted to pray I’ll tell you what I'd do. I'd go out into a great big field all alone or in the deep, deep woods and I'd look up into the sky—up—up—up—into that lovely blue sky that looks as if there was no end to its blueness. And then I'd just feel a prayer. ~L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

If you have a dream, don’t just sit there. Gather courage to believe that you can succeed and leave no stone unturned to make it a reality. ~Roopleen

You were made by God and for God and until you understand that, life will never make sense. ~Rick Warren

Believe there is a great power silently working all things for good, behave yourself and never mind the rest. ~Beatrix Potter

Faith is universal. Our specific methods for understanding it are arbitrary. Some of us pray to Jesus, some of us go to Mecca, some of us study subatomic particles. In the end we are all just searching for truth, that which is greater than ourselves. ~Dan Brown, Angels & Demons

As a well spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death. ~Leonardo da Vinci

There will always be someone willing to hurt you, put you down, gossip about you, belittle your accomplishments and judge your soul. It is a fact that we all must face. However, if you realize that God is a best friend that stands beside you when others cast stones you will never be afraid, never feel worthless and never feel alone. ~Shannon L. Alder

Faith ~acceptance of which we imagine to be true, that which we cannot prove. ~Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code

Faith consists in believing what reason cannot. ~Voltaire, The Works: Voltaire

Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark. ~Rabindranath Tagore

You can't know, you can only believe - or not. ~C.S. Lewis

there is a God, there always has been. I see him here, in the eyes of the people in this [hospital] corridor of desperation. This is the real house of God, this is where those who have lost God will find Him... there is a God, there has to be, and now I will pray, I will pray that He will forgive that I have neglected Him all of these years, forgive that I have betrayed, lied, and sinned with impunity only to turn to Him now in my hour of need. I pray that He is as merciful, benevolent, and gracious as His book says He is. ~Khaled Hosseini

Sometimes when you lose your way, you find YOURSELF. ~Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us - and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him.

Gratitude therefore takes nothing for granted, is never unresponsive, is constantly awakening to new wonder and to praise of the goodness of God. For the grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference. ~Thomas Merton

When every hope is gone, 'when helpers fail and comforts flee,' I find that help arrives somehow, from I know not where. Supplication, worship, prayer are no superstition; they are acts more real than the acts of eating, drinking, sitting or walking. It is no exaggeration to say that they alone are real, all else is unreal. ~Mahatma Gandhi, The Story of My Experiments With Truth

Real change is difficult at the beginning. Without the familiar to rely upon, you may not in as much command as you had once been. When things are not going your way, you will start doubting yourself. Stay positive, keep the faith, and keep moving forward – your breakthrough may be just around the corner. ~Roy T. Bennett

The Lord works from the inside out. The world works from the outside in. The world would take people out of the slums. Christ would take the slums out of people, and then they would take themselves out of the slums.

The world would mold men by changing their environment. Christ changes men, who then change their environment. The world would shape human behavior, but Christ can change human nature. ~Ezra Taft Benson

[God] will not be used as a convenience. Men or nations who think they can revive the Faith in order to make a good society might just as well think they can use the stairs of heaven as a shortcut to the nearest chemist's shop. ~C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters

Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them. ~Elisabeth Elliot, A Chance to Die: The Life and Legacy of Amy Carmichael

Persistence. Perfection. Patience. Power. Prioritize your passion. It keeps you sane. ~Criss Jami, Killosophy

Because you believed I was capable of behaving decently, I did. ~Paulo Coelho, The Devil and Miss Prym

We have a choice. We have two options as human beings. We have a choice between conversation and war. That's it. Conversation and violence. And faith is a conversation stopper. ~Sam Harris

Radical obedience to Christ is not easy... It's not comfort, not health, not wealth, and not prosperity in this world. Radical obedience to Christ risks losing all these things. But in the end, such risk finds its reward in Christ. And he is more than enough for us. ~David Platt, Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream

Having faith in God did not mean sitting back and doing nothing. It meant believing you would find success if you did your best honestly and energetically. ~Ken Follett, The Pillars of the Earth

When all is said and done, the life of faith is nothing if not an unending struggle of the spirit with every available weapon against the flesh. ~Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship

Men and women who turn their lives over to God will discover that He can make a lot more out of their lives than they can. He can deepen their joys, expand their vision, quicken their minds, strengthen their muscles, lift their spirits, multiply their blessings, increase their opportunities, comfort their soals, and pour out peace. ~Ezra Taft Benson

And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. ~Anonymous, The Holy Bible: New American Standard Version, NASB

Most lives are not distinguished by great achievements. They are measured by an infinite number of small ones. Each time you do a kindness for someone or bring a smile to his face, it gives your life meaning. Never doubt your value, little friend. The world would be a dismal place without you in it. (tweaked version of a passage from Scandal in Spring) ~Lisa Kleypas, Scandal in Spring

We live by faith and not by sight. ~Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version

Love is happiness, but only when you believe it will last forever. Even though every time it turns out to be a lie, it’s only faith that gives love its strength and its joy. ~Sergei Lukyanenko, Night Watch

Don't you quit. You keep walking. You keep trying. There is help and happiness ahead. Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don’t come until heaven; but for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come. It will be all right in the end. Trust God and believe in good things to come. ~Jeffrey R. Holland

When everything gets answered, it's fake. ~Sean Penn

Faith is an oasis in the heart which will never be reached by the caravan of thinking. ~Kahlil Gibran
