Thoughts for Thursday--Beliefs

Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is quotes about religion/beliefs!

"I know God won't give me anything I can't handle. I just wish he didn't trust me so much."--Mother Theresa

"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."--C.S. Lewis

"Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous."--Albert Einstein, The World as I See It

"I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is."--Albert Camus

"I won't take my religion from any man who never works except with his mouth."--Carl Sandburg
Which is your favorite quote about beliefs? Do you have one to add?


  1. I really like the three in the middle. And C.S. Lewis is awesome~~Screwtape Letters!

  2. I love the Carl Sandburg quote!

  3. Great quotes. Faith is so personal and religion such a touchy subject these days, but these quotes are just perfect.
