Faith and Belief
“The enemy's an age, a nuclear age. It happens to have killed man's faith in his ability to influence what happens to him. And out of this comes a sickness, and out of sickness a frustration, a feeling of impotence, helplessness, weakness. And from this desperation, we look for a champion in red, white, and blue.”
"To me, life is here on this earth. I cannot see further, so I cannot believe further."
“You must learn to accept with love whatever comes to you.”
"People must be made to believe before they can be made to act."
“You know what luck is? Luck is believing you're lucky, that's all.”
“I consider faith properly injected into a patient as effective in maintaining life as adrenaline, and a belief in miracles has been the difference between living and dying as often as any surgeon's scalpel.”
"Faith is something precious, something to treasure. Lose faith and you are lost."
“Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to.”
“Ever since I lost the spirit, I’d just as soon go one way or the other.”
“Odds against them didn’t stop those men. They were fools that way. All the good that ever came into this world came from fools with faith like that.”
