If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself.
If a falsehood is stated frequently enough, people will accept it as truth, and eventually even the speaker may believe it.
Attitude is a choice. Think positive thoughts daily. Believe in yourself.
'Adopt a constructive outlook. Foster optimism on a daily basis. Nurture self-confidence.'
Believe in God like the sun up in the sky, see science can tell us how but it can't tell us why. I seen a baby cry then seconds later she laughed, the beauty of life the pain never lasts.
Trust in the Divine as if it were a brilliant star, for science may elucidate the how but never explain the why. I beheld a wee one sob and then moments later burst with joy; the magnificence of life is that its sorrows are fleeting.
Your words will tell others what you think. Your actions will tell them what you believe.
T. D. Jakes
Your utterances will reveal your opinions. Your deeds will demonstrate your convictions.
When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President. I'm beginning to believe it.
When I was young, I heard that anyone could ascend to the highest office. Now, I am starting to believe it is plausible.
I don't believe in taking right decisions. I take decisions and then make them right.
'I don't trust in making correct choices. I pick my options and then ensure they are the best.'
There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called Yesterday and the other is called Tomorrow. Today is the right day to Love, Believe, Do and mostly Live.
'It is only on Today that one can Love, Believe, Act and most importantly Exist.'
There are four principles we need to maintain: First, read the Word of God. Second, consume the Word of God until it consumes you. Third believe the Word of God. Fourth, act on the Word.
"Sustain four guidelines: First, study the Scriptures. Second, ingest the Scriptures until it influences you profoundly. Third trust the Scriptures. Fourth, practice what is written."
There are two different types of people in the world, those who want to know, and those who want to believe.
'There are two different factions in the world, those who seek truth, and those who cling to faith.'
Countrymen, the task ahead is great indeed, and heavy is the responsibility; and yet it is a noble and glorious challenge - a challenge which calls for the courage to dream, the courage to believe, the courage to dare, the courage to do, the courage to envision, the courage to fight, the courage to work, the courage to achieve - to achieve the highest excellencies and the fullest greatness of man. Dare we ask for more in life?
Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you've never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more.
When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. People know themselves much better than you do. That's why it's important to stop expecting them to be something other than who they are
I used to believe that prayer changes things, but now I know that prayer changes us, and we change things.
I formerly thought that supplication could alter circumstances, but now I understand that prayer alters us, and we adjust things.
I always feel like it's two key ingredients when it comes to following your dreams, making something happen that the average person deems difficult. If you truly believe it, that's step one. Step two, is, you know, the hard work that goes along with it.
The secret is to believe in your dreams; in your potential that you can be like your star, keep searching, keep believing and don’t lose faith in yourself.
The key is to have faith in your aspirations; in the possibility that you can reach the same heights as your idols, keep striving, keep trusting and don't relinquish confidence in yourself.
Never explain yourself to anyone, because the one who likes you would not need it, and the one dislikes you wouldn't believe it.
Ali ibn Abi Talib
Do not justify yourself to anyone, as those who appreciate you will understand without an explanation and those who don't won't believe it regardless.
Keep exploring. Keep dreaming. Keep asking why. Don’t settle for what you already know. Never stop believing in the power of your ideas, your imagination, your hard work to change the world.
Continue investigating. Persevere in your musings. Keep inquiring why. Don't be content with what is already known. Unceasingly trust in the strength of your plans, your creativity, and your commitment to modify the globe.
So far from engaging in a war to perpetuate slavery, I am rejoiced that Slavery is abolished. I believe it will be greatly for the interest of the South. So fully am I satisfied of this that I would have cheerfully lost all that I have lost by the war, and have suffered all that I have suffered to have this object attained.
Robert E. Lee
There is no insurmountable solitude. All paths lead to the same goal: to convey to others what we are. And we must pass through solitude and difficulty, isolation and silence in order to reach forth to the enchanted place where we can dance our clumsy dance and sing our sorrowful song - but in this dance or in this song there are fulfilled the most ancient rites of our conscience in the awareness of being human and of believing in a common destiny.
Let us set our goals too high; let us demand more of ourselves than we believe we possess
Let us strive for lofty objectives; let us expect more of ourselves than we think is achievable.
There is something about believing God that will cause Him to pass over a million people to get to you
Trust in the Lord and He will honor you above all others.
We have no right to believe that freedom can be won without struggle.
We should not assume that liberation can be attained without effort.
God wants us so badly that he has made the condition as simple as he possibly could: Only believe.
God earnestly desires us to accept his offer, thus establishing the easiest prerequisite: Just have faith.
Don't cry upon you losses
Don't mesure today with tommorows
Don't trust to passed and coming day
Believe in now - and be happy today.
Don't lament your defeats
Don't compare the present to the future
Don't rely on the past and upcoming days
Put faith in this moment - and be joyous now.
No one can believe how powerful prayer is and what it can effect, except those who have learned it by experience. Whenever I have prayed earnestly, I have been heard and have obtained more than I prayed for. God sometimes delays, but He always comes.
Be a free thinker and don't accept everything you hear as truth. Be critical and evaluate what you believe in.
Exercise skepticism and question the veracity of what you encounter before embracing it as fact.
All power is within you; you can do anything and everything. Believe in that, do not believe that you are weak; do not believe that you are half-crazy lunatics, as most of us do nowadays. You can do any thing and everything, without even the guidance of any one. Stand up and express the divinity within you.
I never used to believe in fate. I used to think you make your own life and then you call it fate. That's why I call it irony.
I once held the conviction that destiny was something we crafted ourselves, only to find out it had been predetermined all along. Thus, I dub this phenomenon irony.
We need to have far less confidence in what man can do and far more confidence in what God can do for every believing soul. He longs to have you reach after Him by faith. He longs to have you expect great things from Him. He longs to give you understanding in temporal as well as in spiritual matters. He can sharpen the intellect. He can give tact and skill. Put your talents into the work, ask God for wisdom, and it will be given you.
Ellen G. White
Don't believe everything you hear: Real eyes, Realize, Real lies
'Perceive with discernment; what appears to be may not always be true.'
God's Word never fails. He will always heal you if you dare to believe Him. Men are searching everywhere today for things with which they can heal themselves, and they ignore the fact that the Balm of Gilead (Jeremiah 8:22) is within easy reach.
The world is not the most pleasant place.
Queen Elizabeth II
your parents leave you and nobody is going to go out of their way to protect you unconditionally.
You need to learn to stand up for yourself and what you believe and sometimes,
pardon my language,
kick some ass.
I believe strongly and sincerely that with the deep-rooted wisdom and dignity, the innate respect for human lives, the intense humanity that is our heritage, the African race, united under one federal government, will emerge not as just another world bloc to flaunt its wealth and strength, but as a Great Power whose greatness is indestructible because it is built not on fear, envy and suspicion, nor won at the expense of others, but founded on hope, trust, friendship and directed to the good of all mankind.
Believe it in your heart; say it with your mouth. That is the principle of faith. You can have what you say.
Kenneth E. Hagin
Trust it in your soul; articulate it with your lips. That is the tenet of confidence. You can achieve what you declare.
Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own [will], is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Paul the Apostle
Should any political party attempt to abolish social security unemployment insurance and eliminate labor laws and farm programs you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group of course that believes you can do these things. Among them are a few other Texas oil millionaires and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century: Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.
I believe profoundly in the possibilities of democracy, but democracy needs to be emancipated from capitalism. As long as we inhabit a capitalist democracy, a future of racial equality, gender equality, economic equality will elude us.
His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.
Any man who stands for progress has to criticize, disbelieve and challenge every item of the old faith. Item by item he has to reason out every nook and corner of the prevailing faith. If after considerable reasoning one is led to believe in any theory or philosophy, his faith is welcomed. His reasoning can be mistaken, wrong, misled and sometimes fallacious. But he is liable to correction because reason is the guiding star of his life. But mere faith and blind faith is dangerous: it dulls the brain, and makes a man reactionary.
You have to really believe not only in yourself; you have to believe that the world is actually worth your sacrifices.
You must have faith not only in yourself; you must recognize that the universe is deserving of your dedication.
There are few, I believe, in this enlightened age, who will not acknowledge that slavery as an institution is a moral and political evil.
Robert E. Lee
I strongly posit that in this progressive epoch, only a small number of people would refuse to accept that slavery is an immoral and political blight.
The refusal to take sides on great moral issues is itself a decision. It is a silent acquiescence to evil. The Tragedy of our time is that those who still believe in honesty lack fire and conviction, while those who believe in dishonesty are full of passionate conviction.
Fulton J. Sheen
A man can make what he wants of himself if he truly believes that he must be ready for hard work and many heartbreaks.
A man can fashion his own destiny if he is prepared to endure arduous effort and numerous disappointments.
We believe in peace and peaceful development, not only for ourselves but for people all over the world.
Lal Bahadur Shastri
We are committed to fostering harmony and progress for ourselves and all nations on Earth.
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
'One can be duped either by embracing falsehoods or by denying realities.'
When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
When you're down to nothing, God is up to something. The faithful see the invisible, believe the incredible and then receive the impossible.
Where liberty dwells there is my country.
The more I study science, the more I believe in God.
The more I investigate science, the more I am convinced of a Higher Power.
I am not moved by what I see. I am moved only by what I believe.
I am not persuaded by what I observe. I am only influenced by what I accept.
Our confession will either imprison us or set us free. Our confession is the result of our believing, and our believing is the result of our right or wrong thinking.
Kenneth E. Hagin
Our declaration will either confine us or liberate us. Our declaration is the consequence of our faith, and our faith is the result of our accurate or inaccurate thought process.
