Belief Quotes A-Z by Author|
believe that I was lucky to have suffered. Some people dont realize that
in suffering there is great potential, because if you are deprived for any reason..
politically, financially, socially or otherwise.. and if you set your mind in
the right direction, you will find that the only way to survive is for you to
excel, by being better so you can be treated better.
Abu-Ghazaleh - Belief

Pain - Challenges
Despite the immense challenges that we have faced and continue to face, we refuse
to indulge in negativity or pessimism. We are an organization that believes in
empowering people to be their best.
Abu-Ghazaleh - Arab
The most important thing is God's blessing
and if you believe in God and you believe
in yourself, you have nothing to worry about.
Al-Fayed - God
It is hope in this wider sense which enabled
my father to build, from scratch, one of
India's largest modern enterprises. His
was an undertaking powered by hard work,
initiative, self-belief but, above all else,
the capacity, as he would often say, "to
dream with your eyes wide open".
Ambani - Ambition
God didn't have time to make a nobody, only
a somebody.I believe that each of us has
God-given talents within us waiting to be
brought to fruition.
Kay Ash - Belief
Dont limit yourself. Many people limit
themselves to what they think they can do.
You can go as far as your mind lets you.
What you believe, remember, you can achieve.
Kay Ash - Belief
We can believe that we know where the world
should go. But unless we're in touch with
our customers, our model of the world can
diverge from reality. There's no substitute
for innovation, of course, but innovation
is no substitute for being in touch, either.
Ballmer - Innovation
I absolutely believe in the power of tithing
and giving back. My own experience about
all the blessings I've had in my life is
that the more I give away, the more that
comes back. That is the way life works,
and that is the way energy works.
Blanchard - Philanthropy
The turning point, I think, was when I really
realized that you can do it yourself. That
you have to believe in you because sometimes
that's the only person that does believe
in your success but you.
Blixseth - Motivational
We've shown the world that New York can
never be defeated, because of its dynamic
and diverse population and because it embodies
the spirit of enterprise and the love of
liberty. And because no matter who you are,
if you believe in yourself and your dream,
New York will always be the place for you.
Bloomberg - New
York City - Liberty
My pro-life position is I believe there's
life. It's not necessarily based in religion.
I think there's a life there, therefore
the notion of life, liberty and pursuit
Bushism - Religion
Rights - Life
We believe the American people can spend
their money better than the government can
Bush - Politics
We believe ranchers and farmers and family
business owners can make better decisions
about the future than the government can.
Bush - Politics
Trust the Universe. Trust and believe and
have faith. I truly had no idea how I was
going to bring the knowledge of The
Secret onto the movie screen. I just
held to the outcome of the vision, I saw
the outcome clearly in my mind, I felt it
with all my might, and everything that we
needed to create The Secret came to us.
Byrne - Trust
Self-esteem is a huge piece of my work.
You have to believe it's possible and believe
in yourself. Because after you've decided
what you want, you have to believe it's
possible, and possible for you, not just
for other people. Then you need to seek
out models, mentors, and coaches.
Canfield - Self
Esteem - Belief
I'm a big believer in growth. Life is not
about achievement, it's about learning and
growth, and developing qualities like compassion,
patience, perseverance, love, and joy, and
so forth. And so if that is the case, then
I think our goals should include something
which stretches us.
Canfield - Learning
Theyll get it all from you sooner
or later 'cause they own this f**kin' place.
Its a big club and you ain't in it.
You and I are not in the big club. By the
way, its the same big club they use
to beat you over the head with all day long
when they tell you what to believe. All
day long beating you over the head with
their media telling you what to believe,
what to think and what to buy. The table
is tilted, folks. The game is rigged and
nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to
care. Good, honest, hard-working people:
white collar, blue collar, it doesnt
matter what color shirt you have on.
Carlin - Media
Class - Middle
They dont care about you at all! At
all! At all! And nobody seems to notice.
Nobody seems to care. Thats what the
owners count on. The fact that Americans
will probably remain willfully ignorant
of the big red, white and blue dick thats
being jammed up their assholes every day,
because the owners of this country know
the truth. Its called the American
Dream, because you have to be asleep to
Carlin - America
Business - Greed
I thought of myself as an atheist until
I realized it was a belief, too. It's a
shame everything has to have a label. I
feel that if I was figuratively dropped
on the Earth and there was a political line,
I would be just left of center. The difference
for me is that conservatives are more interested
in property values and rights and free markets,
and liberals are more interested in human
rights. In the end, there are people who
don't fit into the marketplace and are not
equipped. I believe the government should
step in where the free market fails.
Carlin - God
Market - Human
Rights - Government
In order for us human beings to commit ourselves
personally to the inhumanity of war, we
find it necessary first to dehumanize our
opponents, which is in itself a violation
of the beliefs of all religions. Once we
characterize our adversaries as beyond the
scope of God's mercy and grace, their lives
lose all value.
Carter - War
If you believe that some day it's going to happen, some day it probably will
happen. You just have to make sure you're there when it's happening, and ideally
you're at the front of the parade, and the principle beneficiary of when it happens,
but it's not a kind of thing where you just sort of sit back and wait.
Case - Belief
The way you think, the way you behave, the way you eat, can influence your
life by 30 to 50 years. Most people believe that aging is universal but there
are biological organisms that never age.
Chopra - Thinking

When the president decides something on Monday, he still believes it on Wednesday..
no matter what happened Tuesday.
Colbert - Change
This is not the kind of country where you
would feel comfortable if you were opposed
to democracy, parliamentary law, independent
courts and so I would say to people who
don't feel comfortable with those values
there might be other countries where they'd
feel more comfortable with their own values
Costello - Social
I feel most deeply that this whole question
of creation is too profound for human intellect.
A dog might as well speculate on the mind
of (Isaac) Newton! Let each man hope and
believe what he can.
Darwin - Knowledge
I can indeed hardly see how anyone ought
to wish Christianity to be true; for if
so the plain language of the text seems
to show that the men who do not believe,
and this would include my Father, Brother,
and almost all my best friends, will be
everlastingly punished. And this is a damnable
Darwin - Truth
I think the important thing to learn is
that we can retain a sentimental loyalty
to the cultural and literary traditions
of, say, Judaism, Anglicanism or Islam,
and even participate in religious rituals
such as marriages and funerals, without
buying into the supernatural beliefs that
historically went along with those traditions.
We can give up belief in God while not losing
touch with a treasured heritage.
Dawkins - God
There's this thing called being so open-minded
your brains drop out.
Dawkins - Belief
We are all atheists about most of the gods
that humanity has ever believed in. Some
of us just go one god further.
Dawkins - God
I doubt that religion can survive deep understanding.
The shallows are its natural habitat. Cranks
and fundamentalists are too often victimised
as scapegoats for religion in general. It
is only quite recently that Christianity
reinvented itself in non-fundamentalist
guise, and Islam has yet to do so.
Dawkins - Religion
Religion is about turning untested belief
into unshakable truth through the power
of institutions and the passage of time.
Dawkins - Religion
I think that the Bible as literature should
be a compulsory part of the national curriculum..
you can't understand English literature
and culture without it. But insofar as theology
studies the nature of the divine, it will
earn the right to be taken seriously when
it provides the slightest, smallest smidgen
of a reason for believing in the existence
of the divine. Meanwhile, we should devote
as much time to studying serious theology
as we devote to studying serious fairies
and serious unicorns.
Dawkins - Religion
Most people, I believe, think that you need
a God to explain the existence of the world,
and especially the existence of life. They
are wrong, but our education system is such
that many people don't know it.
Dawkins - God
Faith is the great cop out, the great excuse
to evade the need to think and evaluate
evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even
perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.
Dawkins - Religion
Whatever qualities the rich may have, they
can be acquired by anyone with the tenacity
to become rich. The key, I think, is confidence.
Confidence and an unshakable belief it can
be done and that you are the one to do it.
Dennis - Rich
I believe, indeed, that overemphasis on
the purely intellectual attitude, often
directed solely to the practical and factual,
in our education, has led directly to the
impairment of ethical values.
Einstein - Values
When you're the first person whose beliefs
are different from what everyone else believes,
you're basically saying, "I'm right,
and everyone else is wrong." That's
a very unpleasant position to be in. It's
at once exhilarating and at the same time
an invitation to be attacked.
Ellison - Innovation
Once I began following my own instincts, sales took off and I became a millionaire.
And that, I think, is a key secret to every person's success, be they male or
female, banker or p0rnographer:Trust in your gut.
Flynt - Instinct
Along with a strong belief in your own inner voice, you also need laser-like
focus combined with unwavering determination.
Flynt - Instinct
You will encounter many distractions and many temptations to put your goal aside:
The security of a job, a wife who wants kids, whatever. But if you hang in there,
always following your vision, I have no doubt you will succeed.
Flynt - Belief
I see myself as a climate change skeptic
and a skeptic looks at the evidence and
bases conclusions on the evidence rather
than on belief. To hold the view that this
is not an issue that you need to do something
about, to hold the view that its all
a furphy takes belief.
Garnaut - Facts
Change - Ignorance
We started our foundation because we believe
we have a real opportunity to help advance
equity around the world.. to help make sure
that, no matter where a person is born,
he or she has the chance to live a healthy,
Gates - Help
I don't fear death because I believe it
is a transition. Our souls can't be destroyed.
I know we are going to live in another life.
Geller - Life
I'm a religious man. I am Jewish but I believe in all religions. I believe
in God and see him as an old man with a big white beard and pray to him every
day for a few minutes.
Geller - Belief
There are many qualities that make a great
leader. But having strong beliefs, being
able to stick with them through popular
and unpopular times, is the most important
characteristic of a great leader.
Giuliani - Leadership
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those
who falsely believe they are free.
Wolfgang von Goethe - Freedom
Whatever the mind of man can conceive and
believe, it can achieve. Thoughts are things!
And powerful things at that, when mixed
with definiteness of purpose, and burning
desire, can be translated into riches.
Hill - Thinking
Help - Goals
I know that I have the ability to achieve
the object of my Definite Purpose in life,
therefore, I demand of myself persistent,
continuous action toward its attainment,

Howard - Economy
I strongly believe that a small Jewish clique
which has contempt for the mass of Jewish
people worked with non-Jews to create the
First World War, the Russian Revolution,
and the Second World War. This Jewish/non-Jewish
Elite used the First World War to secure
the Balfour Declaration and the principle
of the Jewish State of Israel.
Icke - Jewish
Theory - Illuminati
I'm an optimist. I've always believed the
future is going to be better than the past.
And I also believe I have a role in that.
The great thing about human beings, myself
in particular, is that I can change. I can
do better. If you can get up every day,
stay optimistic, and believe the future
is better than the past, those few things
get you through a lot of tough times.
Immelt - Belief
I've been seeing the change. It's been steady.
It's been more controlled than people think.
And my own belief is that China knows it
also needs to be part of the world, and
that it needs to be able to have trade with
Europe and the United
States in order to house and feed a
billion people. That's really kind of single-mindedly
what they see their role as being.
Immelt - Belief
I work with wonderful people who support
me. And, my beliefs are that the business
needs to serve the family rather than the
family serve the business.
Ireland - Help
If you have enough people sitting around
telling you you're wonderful, then you start
believing you're fabulous, then someone
tells you you stink and you believe that
Jolie - Criticism
I don't believe in guilt, I believe in living
on impulse as long as you never intentionally
hurt another person, and don't judge people
in your life. I think you should live completely
Jolie - Values
I submit to you that if a man has not discovered
something that he will die for, he isn't
fit to live.
Luther King Jr - People
When people get caught up with that which
is right and they are willing to sacrifice
for it, there is no stopping point short
Luther King Jr - Victory
I shall do less whenever I shall believe
what I am doing hurts the cause and I shall
do more whenever I shall believe doing more
will help the cause. I shall try to correct
errors when shown to be errors and I shall
adopt new views so fast as they shall appear
to be true views.
Lincoln - Belief
I firmly believe that any man's finest hour,
the greatest fulfillment of all that he
holds dear, is the moment when he has worked
his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted
on the field of battle-victorious.
Lombardi - Hard
Work - Success
I once met an economist who believed that
everything was fungible for money, so I
suggested he enclose himself in a large
bell-jar with as much money as he wanted
and see how long he lasted.
Lovins - Money
Karl Rove described Obama
as "the guy at the country club with
the beautiful date, holding a martini, and
making snide comments about everyone who
passes by." Unlike George
Bush, who's the guy at the country club
who makes snide comments, and then passes
out. Now this characterization, of course,
was something Mr. Rove just completely pulled
out of his bulbous, gelatinous a$$, but
remember this is America, a land where people
believe anything they hear.
Maher - Republican
College totally changed my life. It changed
what I believe and what I think about everything.
I majored in philosophy.
Martin - School
I believe that religion, generally speaking,
has been a curse to mankind that
its modest and greatly overestimated services
on the ethical side have been more than
overcome by the damage it has done to clear
and honest thinking.
L. Mencken - Thinking
One of the main purposes of laws in a democratic
society is to put burdens upon intelligence
and reduce it to impotence. Ostensibly,
their aim is to penalize anti-social acts;
actually their aim is to penalize heretical
opinions. At least ninety-five Americans
out of every 100 believe that this process
is honest and even laudable; it is practically
impossible to convince them that there is
anything evil in it. In other words, they
cannot grasp the concept of liberty.
L. Mencken - Democracy
I believe my concepts are more than just
business, they are about our culture.
Mori - Management
The self-anointed media elite among us believe,
somewhat self-servingly, that not only the
act, or process of making a profit is positively
sinister, but also that the very desire
to do so is.
Murdoch - Media
The industry is littered with self-styled
purists who believe the business of media..
the requirement to make a profit.. somehow
corrupts the craft.
Murdoch - Business
In my heart I know you didn't come here
just for me, you came here because you believe
in what this country can be. In the face
of war, you believe there can be peace.
In the face of despair, you believe there
can be hope. In the face of a politics that's
shut you out, that's told you to settle,
that's divided us for too long, you believe
we can be one people, reaching for what's
possible, building that more perfect union.
Obama - War
My parents shared not only an improbable love, they shared an abiding faith
in the possibilities of this nation. They would give me an African name, Barack,
or blessed, believing that in a tolerant America your name is no barrier to success.
They imagined me going to the best schools in the land, even though they weren't
rich, because in a generous America you don't have to be rich to achieve your

Our philosophy is we call it as we see it. Sometimes you agree, sometimes
you don't. Robust debate is good.
O'Reilly - Belief
I've always believed that it's important
to show a new look periodically. Predictability
can lead to failure.
Boone Pickens - Belief
The great fault of all ethics hitherto has
been that they believed themselves to have
to deal only with the relations of man to
man. In reality, however, the question is
what is his attitude to the world and all
life that comes within his reach.
Schweitzer - Life
I believe that Jews and Arabs can live together.
Its not an easy thing but I believe
we can reach an agreement.
Sharon - Partnership
What a man believes may be ascertained not
from his creed, but from assumptions on
which he habitually acts.
Bernard Shaw - Belief
I believe in giving everything my best shot.
I do not believe in holding back. I am very
driven by the fact that we are destined
with these opportunities.
Singh - Belief
Philanthropy is all about making a positive
difference in the world by devoting your
resources and your time to causes you believe
in. In my case, I like to support causes
where "a lot of good comes from a little
bit of good," or, in other words, where
the positive social returns vastly exceed
the amount of time and money invested.
Skoll - Philanthropy
I believe that Silicon Valley is truly a
place of excellence and the impact of this
tiny community on the world is completely
disproportionate to its size. We are the
undisputed leaders of technological change.
But with our abundance of talent and resources,
we also have the opportunity to be the pioneers
of social change and, ultimately, this may
be our greatest contribution.
Skoll - Business
Ethics - Social
Valley - World
I believe in the Golden Rule - The Man with
the Gold.. rules.
T - Belief
Thinking, or more precisely identification
with thinking, gives rise to and maintains
the ego, which, in our Western society in
particular, is out of control. It believes
it is real and tries hard to maintain its
supremacy. Negative states of mind, such
as anger, resentment, fear, envy, and jealousy,
are products of the ego.
Tolle - Thinking
Control - Belief
I believe through learning and application
of what you learn, you can solve any problem,
overcome any obstacle and achieve any goal
that you can set for yourself.
Tracy - Achievement
I dont have to believe in Feng Shui,
I do it because it makes me money.
Trump - Feng
Shui - Money
I would guess that it might have made a
difference. It certainly didnt hurt
us in any way. Feng shui creates a balance
that I believe adds to the comfort zone
of rooms and space, and that is felt by
guests and residents.
Trump - Feng
Shui - Belief
It's important to adhere to the principles
of a large group of people that truly believe
these principles, and if they believe them,
then that's good enough for me.
Trump - Feng
Shui - Belief
Believe in yourself.. in all you can do..
and for you, the deals will start to work
in your favor. You need to be open to such
deals, and they will come, I assure you.
Trump - Work
In religion and politics, people's beliefs
and convictions are in almost every case
gotten at second hand, and without examination.
Twain - Religion
Outstanding leaders go out of their way
to boost the self-esteem of their personnel.
If people believe in themselves, it's amazing
what they can accomplish.
Walton - Leadership
I probably have mellowed down a bit. But
when it comes to principles, I still have
to make a stand.
Wu - Belief
My experience working in the Grameen Bank
has given me faith; an unshakable faith
in the creativity of human beings. It leads
me to believe that humans are not born to
suffer the misery of hunger and poverty.
They suffer now as they did in the past
because we turn our heads away from this
Yunus - Experience
We create institutions and policies on the basis of the way we make assumptions
about us and others. We accept the fact that we will always have poor people around
us. So we have had poor people around us. If we had believed that poverty is unacceptable
to us, and that it should not belong to a civilized society, we would have created
appropriate institutions and policies to create a poverty-free world.
Yunus - Poverty
I have come to believe, deeply and firmly, that we can create a poverty free
world if we want to. I came to this conclusion not as a product of a pious dream,
but as a concrete result of experience gained in the work of the Grameen Bank.
Yunus - Experience
I believe that being successful means having a balance of success stories
across the many areas of your life. You can't truly be considered successful in
your business life if your home life is in shambles.
