Quotes of the Day [Aug. 25th, 2004|11:45 am]
Peter Sheil
Not actually todays "Quotes of the Day" but some on the subject of "faith" (for reasons that are strange and unrelated to anything else :) ). Those of you who know me know that I'm not a Christian and my view on "faith" may be a tad different from some of my readers in some ways ... although at a fundamental level it is identical but with different labels. Anyway, enough chat, here's the "meat".


Hold faithfulness and sincerity as first principles.
Confucius (551 BC - 479 BC), The Confucian Analects

I always admired atheists. I think it takes a lot of faith.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider, Northern Exposure, Seoul Mates, 1991

I respect faith, but doubt is what gets you an education.
Wilson Mizner (1876 - 1933)

Faith is, at one and the same time, absolutely necessary and altogether impossible.
Stanislaw Lem (1921 - )

To believe in God or in a guiding force because someone tells you to is the height of stupidity. We are given senses to receive our information within. With our own eyes we see, and with our own skin we feel. With our intelligence, it is intended that we understand. But each person must puzzle it out for himself or herself.
Sophy Burnham

What I am actually saying is that we need to be willing to let our intuition guide us, and then be willing to follow that guidance directly and fearlessly.
Shakti Gawain

Treat the other man's faith gently; it is all he has to believe with. His mind was created for his own thoughts, not yours or mine.
Henry S. Haskins

Polymer researchers probe self-healing fuel tanks

It's all about golf balls
They also need to find a way round the polymer's irritating habit of disintegrating on contact with jet fuel.
Yeah, that could limit it's effectiveness :)
