I believe that I was lucky to have suffered. Some people don’t 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.
Talal Abu-Ghazaleh - Belief - Luck - Inspirational

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.
Mohamed Al-Fayed - God - Belief - Inspirational

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".
Anil Ambani - Ambition - Belief - Goals - Commitment - Work

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.

Don’t 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.
Mary Kay Ash - Belief - Motivational - Ambition

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.
Steve Ballmer - Innovation - Customers - Belief

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.
Ken Blanchard - Philanthropy - Power - Life - Belief

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.
Tim Blixseth - Motivational - Belief - Success - Self Help

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.
Michael Bloomberg - New York City - Liberty - Dreams - Belief - World

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 of happiness.
George Bushism - Religion - Stupid - Funny - Human Rights - Life - Belief
- Happiness

We believe the American people can spend their money better than the government can spend it.

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.
Rhonda Byrne - Trust - Belief - Faith
- Mind - Optimistic - Create - Self Help

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.
Jack Canfield - Self Esteem - Belief - People

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.
Jack Canfield - Learning - Goals - Belief - Growth - Achievement - Compassion - Persistence - Patience - Love

They’ll get it all from you sooner or later 'cause they own this f**kin' place. It’s a big club and you ain't in it. You and I are not in the big club. By the way, it’s 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 doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on.
George Carlin - Media - Greed - Belief - Thinking - Working Class - Middle Class

They don’t care about you at all! At all! At all! And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes every day, because the owners of this country know the truth. It’s called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.
George Carlin - America - Dream - Big Business - Greed - Care - Ignorant - Truth


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.
George Carlin - God - Conservatives - Atheist - Belief - Liberal - Free 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.
Jimmy Carter - War
- Life - Belief

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.
Steve Case - Belief - Ambition - Action

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.
Deepak Chopra - Thinking
- Optimistic - Life - Belief

When the president decides something on Monday, he still believes it on Wednesday.. no matter what happened Tuesday.
Stephen Colbert - Change - President - Belief - Stupid


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 or beliefs
Peter Costello -
Social - Australia - Politics - Religion - Values - Belief - Culture

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.
Charles Darwin - Knowledge - Animal -
Belief - Questions - Intelligent

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 doctrine.
Charles Darwin - Truth - Christianity - Belief - Family - Punishment - Control


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.
Richard Dawkins - God - Religion - Culture - Christianity - Islam - Marriage - Funeral - Belief - History

There's this thing called being so open-minded your brains drop out.
Richard Dawkins - Belief - Stupid


We are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further.
Richard Dawkins - God - Religion - Belief - Atheism - History


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.
Richard Dawkins - Religion - Christianity - Islam - Belief - Understanding - Survival
- Crazy

Religion is about turning untested belief into unshakable truth through the power of institutions and the passage of time.
Richard Dawkins - Religion - Belief - Influential - Power - Truth - Lies


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.
Richard Dawkins - Religion - Bible - Christianity - Belief - Atheism - Teaching - Education - Culture

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.
Richard Dawkins - God - Religion - Belief - Education - World - Life - Wrong


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.
Richard Dawkins - Religion - Belief - Faith - Thinking - Facts


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.
Felix Dennis - Rich - Optimistic
- Positive - Confidence - Determination - Motivational - Belief

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.
Albert Einstein - Values - Knowledge - Belief - Intelligence - Attitude - Education - Ethics

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.
Larry Ellison - Innovation -
Belief - Change

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.
Larry Flynt - Instinct - Belief - Success

Along with a strong belief in your own inner voice, you also need laser-like focus combined with unwavering determination.
Larry Flynt - Instinct - Belief - Self Control

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.
Larry Flynt - Belief - Goals - Success


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 it’s all a furphy takes belief.
Ross Garnaut - Facts
- Climate Change - Ignorance - Science - Skeptical - Lies - Belief

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, productive life.
Melinda Gates - Help - Opportunity - Belief - Philanthropy - Life

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.
Uri 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.
Uri 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.
Rudy Giuliani - Leadership - Belief - Challenges - Strength

None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe - Freedom - Belief - Control

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.
Napoleon Hill - Thinking - Self Help - Goals - Motivational - Desire
- Achievement - Mind - Belief - Power - Rich - Purpose

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, and I here and now promise to render such action.
Napoleon Hill - Think and Grow Rich - Self Help - Goals - Achievement - Belief - Action - Determination - Persistent - Now


I’ve never believed in lower wages. Never. Never believed in lower wages, I’ve never believed in lower wages as an economic instrument.
John Howard - Economy - Belief - Wage


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.
David Icke - Jewish - War - Cabal - Elite - Israel - Manipulation - Geopolitics
- Conspiracy 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.
Jeffrey Immelt - Belief - Change - Optimist - Inspirational - Future - Past - Challenges

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.
Jeffrey Immelt - Belief - Change - Control - China - World - Trade - America - Survival - Europe

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.
Kathy Ireland - Help - Family - Work - Belief - Business

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 too.
Angelina Jolie - Criticism - Belief

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 free.
Angelina Jolie - Values - Freedom - Belief - Judge - Life - Guilt - Impulse - Hurt

I submit to you that if a man has not discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
Martin Luther King Jr - People - Death
- Life - Belief

When people get caught up with that which is right and they are willing to sacrifice for it, there is no stopping point short of victory.
Martin Luther King Jr - Victory - Determination - Belief - Sacrifice


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.
Abraham Lincoln - Belief - Mistakes - Success - Change

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.
Vince Lombardi - Hard Work - Success - Inspirational - Belief

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.
Amory Lovins - Money - Economy
- Belief - Life

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.
Bill Maher - Republican -
America - Criticism - Politics - Stupid - Belief

College totally changed my life. It changed what I believe and what I think about everything. I majored in philosophy.
Steve Martin - School - Education - Belief - Thinking - Change

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.
H. L. Mencken - Thinking - Belief - Religion - Ethics - Honesty

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.
H. L. Mencken - Democracy - Law - Intelligent - Punishment - America - Evil - Liberty - Belief

I believe my concepts are more than just business, they are about our culture.
Minoru Mori - Management - Business - Belief

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.
Lachlan Murdoch - Media - Belief - Profits
- Criticism

The industry is littered with self-styled purists who believe the business of media.. the requirement to make a profit.. somehow corrupts the craft.
Lachlan Murdoch - Business - Media - Belief
- Profits

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.
Barack Obama - War - Encouragement - America - Politics - Belief


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 potential.
Barack Obama - Encouragement - Inspirational - America - Belief - Hope
- Family - Love - Success - School - Rich - Generous

Our philosophy is we call it as we see it. Sometimes you agree, sometimes you don't. Robust debate is good.
Bill O'Reilly - Belief


I've always believed that it's important to show a new look periodically. Predictability can lead to failure.
T. Boone Pickens - Belief - Change - Failure

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.
Albert Schweitzer - Life - Ethical - Nature - Attitude - World - Belief

I believe that Jews and Arabs can live together. It’s not an easy thing but I believe we can reach an agreement.
Ariel Sharon - Partnership - Belief - Challenges

What a man believes may be ascertained not from his creed, but from assumptions on which he habitually acts.
George Bernard Shaw - Belief - Action

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.
Shailendra Singh - Belief - Best - Opportunity - Inspirational

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.
Jeff Skoll - Philanthropy - Positive - World - Belief - Social - Money - Change

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.
Jeff Skoll - Business Ethics - Social - Belief - Change - Silicon Valley - World - Technology - Talent - Opportunity

I believe in the Golden Rule - The Man with the Gold.. rules.
Mr 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.
Eckhart Tolle - Thinking - Fear - Ego - Self Control - Belief - Negative - Anger

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.
Brian Tracy - Achievement - Learning - Goals - Problems - Solutions - Belief

I don’t have to believe in Feng Shui, I do it because it makes me money.
Donald Trump - Feng Shui - Money - Belief

I would guess that it might have made a difference. It certainly didn’t 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.
Donald Trump - Feng Shui - Belief - Property

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.
Donald Trump - Feng Shui - Belief - Asian

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.
Ivana Trump - Work - Belief - Deals

In religion and politics, people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second hand, and without examination.
Mark Twain - Religion - Politics - Conviction - Belief - Stupid

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.
Sam Walton - Leadership - Belief - Encouragement

I probably have mellowed down a bit. But when it comes to principles, I still have to make a stand.
Gordon Wu - Belief - Action

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 issue.
Muhammad Yunus - Experience - Banks - Poverty - Creativity - Belief - Potential


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.
Muhammad Yunus - Poverty - Belief

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.
Muhammad Yunus - Experience - Banks - Poverty - Belief - Dreams


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.
Zig Ziglar - Success - Business - Life - Belief
