1. Any faith in Him, however small, is better than any belief about Him, however great.
2. Faith, with its justifying, sanctifying, and saving power, is independent of science and learning, and may be kindled even in the heart of a little child.
3. To give up faith in Christ is to give up faith in humanity; to believe in Christ is to believe in the redeption and final glorification of men; and this faith is the best inspiration to a holy and useful life for the good of our race of the glory of God.
4. A string of opinions no more constitutes faith, than a string of beads constitutes holiness.
5. Faith is the mother of virtues. Faith is the fire which consumes sacrifice. Faith is the water which nurtures the root of piety. If you have not faith, all your graces must die. And in proportion as your faith increases, so will all your virtues be strengthened, not all in the same proportion, but all in some degree.
6. Faith is the silver thread upon which the pearls of the graces are to be hung. Break that, and you have broken the string -- the pearls lie scattered on the ground.
7. "The reward of being 'faithful over a few things' is just the same as being 'faithful over many things' ; for the emphasis falls upon the same word; it is the 'faithful' who will enter 'into the joy of their Lord.'"
8. "Success is the world's criterion of merit; fidelity is God's."
9. "God loves with a great love the man whose heart is bursting with a passion for the impossible."
10. "Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable, and receives the impossible."
