- Henry David Thoreau
Without faith there is no knowledge, without knowledge there is no virtuous conduct, without virtues there is no deliverance, and without deliverance there is no perfection.
What a person believes is not as important as how a person believes.
Faith is nourishment, virtuous deeds are a shelter, wisdom is light by day and right mindfulness is protection by night.
- Gautama Buddha
Those who think religion is about belief don’t understand religion, and don’t understand belief.

Faith: not wanting to know what is true.
