Quotes of the Day for 19 November 2000 – Faith

In the US, Thanksgiving Day falls on Thursday of this week, and I'm going to set aside my cynicism for the week, as I am truly thankful for manifold grace and multiple blessings. If you are among our foreign readers, thing of it as "Gentle Virtues Week." I'll start with Faith.

The quotes:

Enthusiasm is the greatest asset in the world. It beats money and power and influence. It is no more or less than faith in action.
     - Henry Chester

Hope, like faith, is nothing if it is not contagious; it is nothing if it is not ridiculous.
     - Thornton Wilder

Faith is to believe what you do not yet see; the reward for this faith is to see what you believe.
     - Saint Augustine

No vision and you perish; no ideal, and you're lost; your heart must ever cherish some faith at any cost. Some hope, some dream to cling to, some rainbow in the sky, some melody to sing to, some service that is high.
     - Harriet Du Autermont
