It is idle to talk always of the alternative of reason and faith.
Reason is itself a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert
that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all.
– G. K. Chesterton

Can you PROVE, in a non-circular way,
that there is truth? that reason works? No?
Oh, you have FAITH. I see.
– Anonymous

Faith is belief in something for which there is evidence but no proof.
Faith is required for belief in most scientific ideas, as well as in religious doctrines. Faith is irrelevant for believing proven facts, like the
existence of cats or mathematical truths.
– Sy Garte

Life will always take you with a combination of faith and reason.
God has put enough in this world to make faith in Him a most
reasonable thing; He has left enough out to make it impossible
to live by sheer reason alone.
– Ravi Zacharias

Belief in God is an act of faith.
But so is believing our existence
is simply the result of chance.
– Eric Metaxas

The greatest act of faith takes place when a man
finally decides that he is not God.
– Johann Wolfgang Goethe

Faith is taking the first step even when
you don’t see the whole staircase.
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
