Faith builds in the dungeon and lazarhouse its sublimest shrines; and up, through roofs of stone, that shut out the eye of heaven, ascends the ladder where the angels glide to and fro, - prayer. Bulwer-Lytton

Faith draws the poison from every grief, takes the sting from every loss, and quenches the fire of every pain; and only faith can do it. J. G. Holland
Faith has a saving connection with Christ. Christ is on the shore, so to speak, holding the rope, and as we lay hold of it with the hand of our confidence, He pulls us to shore; but all good works having no connection with Christ are drifted along down the gulf of fell despair. Spurgeon
Faith has in it the recognition of the certainty and the justice of a judgment that is coming down crashing on every human head; and then from the midst of these fears and sorrows and the tempest of that great darkness there rises up in the night of terrors the shining of one perhaps pale, quivering, distant, but divinely given hope, 'My Saviour! My Saviour! He is righteous; He has died; He lives! I will stay no longer; I will cast myself upon Him! Alexander Maclaren
Faith has no eyes; he who asks to see has no faith.

Faith in the hereafter is as necessary for the intellectual as the moral character; and to the man of letters, as well as to the Christian, the present forms but the slightest portion of his existence. Southey
Faith is a Christian's right eye, without which he cannot look for Christ; right hand, without which he cannot do for Christ; it is his tongue, without which he cannot speak for Christ; it is his vital spirit, without which he cannot act for Christ. Thomas Brooks
Faith is a higher facility than reason. Bailey
Faith is a homely, private capital; as there are public savings-banks and poor funds, out of which in times of want we can relieve the necessities of individuals, so here the faithful take their coin in peace. Goethe
Faith is a practical habit, which, like every other, is strengthened and increased by continual exercise. It is nourished by meditation, by prayer, and the devout perusal of the Scriptures; and the light which it diffuses becomes stronger and clearer by an uninterrupted converse with its object, and a faithful compliance with its dictates. Robert Hall
Faith is a simple trust in a personal Redeemer. The simpler our trust in Christ for all things, the surer our peace. William Adams

Faith is letting down our nets into the transparent deeps at the Divine command, not knowing what we shall draw. Fénelon
Faith is like love, it cannot be forced. Therefore it is a dangerous operation if an attempt be made to introduce or bind it by state regulations; for, as the attempt to force love begets hatred, so also to compel religious belief produces rank unbelief. Schopenhauer.

Faith is the backbone of the social and the foundation of the commercial fabric; remove faith between man and man, and society and commerce fall to pieces. There is not a happy home on earth but stands on faith; our heads are pillowed on it, we sleep at night in its arms with greater security for the safety of our lives, peace, and prosperity than bolts and bars can give. Thomas Guthrie
Faith is the bond of union, the instrument of justification, the spring of spiritual peace and joy, the means of spiritual peace and subsistence. John Flavel
Faith is the champion of grace, and love the nurse; but humility is the beauty of grace. Thomas Brooks
Faith is the continuation of reason. William Adams
Faith is the heroism of intellect. Charles H. Parkhurst
Faith is the inspiration of nobleness, it is the strength of integrity; it is the life of love, and is everlasting growth for it; it is courage of soul, and bridges over for our crossing the gulf between worldliness and heavenly-mindedness; and it is the sense of the unseen, without which we could not feel God nor hope for heaven. Mountford
Faith is the root of works. A root that produceth nothing is dead. Thomas Wilson
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Bible

Faith is the vision of the heart.
Faith is to believe what we do not see; and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe. St. Augustine

Faith keeps many doubts in her pay. If I could not doubt, I should not believe. Thoreau
Faith keeps the world going.
Faith lights us through the dark to Deity. Sir W. Davenant
